A beautiful night, listening to the waves gently touch the sand on what is known as Hendrey’s beach at a very popular restaurant called The Boathouse, is where I took my stand, or table, for this feast.. Since it is Saturday night, and the outside was packed with folks already on their second or third drink, (I stayed with my favorite passion fruit ice tea) there I was ready to chow down on some of the freshest items on the menu.

First order was the grilled shrimp, four large ones, shells on, that cane lounging on the top of a foot long cut of toasted  French bread swimming in drawn butter and garlic. Wow did I ever need my mints after this dish.Then cam the fresh New England style clam chowder with the clams right out of the shell floating in a creamy broth. I pounded it with Tabasco sauce and sucked it up as fast as Icould.

The rest of the order just kept coming, the french fries where perfect, golden and crispy, with a touch of sea salt. The pulled pork sliiders, there were three, were very tasty and topped with a zesty Bar-BQ sauce.

In between all of the above came the seared Ahi-Tuna on a bed of spicy cold slaw flavored with a vinegar and lemon juice flavor that I ate with chop-sticks.


I ordered a few more Passion ice teas while I watched the place fill up with lots of beautiful people who would follow my lead and enjoy this perfect night out.


I recommend getting there before 6PM if you can if not, you can order a drink or two from the bar and wait for your table. It is worth it! See photos below.
