King’s Inn

What started out in 1935 as a short-order cafe on the shore of Baffin Bay is now a coastal culinary landmark. The dining room is spacious, with the best tables in the house in the sun-lit area facing east, overlooking the placid water. Arrive knowing that there are no paper menus and servers will not split checks. But do expect the full family-style experience when you order the fried seafood plate: flaky fish, buttery scallops, succulent frogs’ legs, oysters, and huge shrimp served by the pound with crispy onion rings, hush puppies, and fries. Try the kitschy Bombay Salad (mashed avocado seasoned with lemon and curry over iceberg lettuce) and be sure to have the spicy tartar sauce (its recipe a well-kept family secret). (1/14)
