Atmosphere is casual and rather noisy, but located right on the water. If you want quiet conversation, ask to be seated in the corner “room” near the larger bar. We ordered a bunch of appetizers to sample the seafood as well as the charcuterie plate. Food was delicious! Would definitely go back!

The Mooring is always great! Scallop chowder is a great starter.

Service was very good. Everyone was on top of their jobs. Food was so so. Parking is a pain in this area. It cost me $14 for 2 hours, in the lot in front of the restaurant, on a Sunday night, in the winter. I guess that's a pitfall of being located in a major tourist destination.

Good service, but the food was poor - dry salmon and lobster, and crab cakes average. Great oysters in fairness. We specified when booking it was our anniversary, but no mention from the restaurant. Disappointing.

Swordfish was dry. Lobster was delish, but served only with 3 boring boiled baby potatoes.
