Excess of a more approachable kind rules at this kitschy and acid-hued diner, which serves globally influenced dishes—that still nod to the region’s coastal heritage—like fennel-lobster bouillabaisse Marseilles.

The wide veranda at this casual restaurant has the best tableside view of New Harbor, which fills up with moored sailboats at dusk.

Founding sibling Brigid Price whips up signature sandwiches for worn-out cyclists at this pint-size Old Harbor institution.

The 12-table restaurant is named after the original owner's black Lab. The bar buzzes after dark in this low-lit gray clapboarad cottage, decorated with paintings by local artists. Come for the seafood dishes such as steamed crab and Maine lobster over fresh casarecce pasta.

Try the No-Nonsense Lobsta Roll and “chowda” at this casual Middleton joint.
