Destination Restaurants Worth the Trip
Sometimes heading out of town for a bite to eat is good for the soul and when you find a hidden gem, all the better right!?
Here are 5 excellent restaurants, out of town but not too far a drive and definitely worth the trip!
Blue Eyed Crab in Plymouth is located on the waterfront in America's Hometown and specializes in, you guessed it; seafood. Everything from your traditional pan seared scallops to one of there many daily specials like the Cajun Salmon salad with homemade dressings that you will want to bottle and bring home they are so good! They have a good size dining area and bar and an amazing outside deck with a water view. Checkout their Facebook page.
Sam Diego's in Hyannis on Cape Cod is the original location located on Route 132 in Hyannis across from the Cape Cod Mall. There is a second location in Plymouth but in my opinion, the Hyannis location is the original😊 Great Mexican food and their margaritas are the best!
Camille’s Restaurant on Bradford St in the Federal Hill section of Providence is fine Italian dining with 100 plus year old recipes that have been passed down several generations. The atmosphere is comfortable and the staff are extremely attentive. Their Chicken Parmesan is one of their classic signature plates and you can request it with homemade pasta of your choice. Camille’s is a perfect date night or family style gathering.
Flying Bridge in Falmouth is famous for their seafood and their amazing view! They've been serving fresh seafood for more than 20 years and take pride in their creative specialty dishes served daily. You can arrive or leave by boat to the restaurant and enjoy beautiful views of Falmouth Harbor and Martha’s Vineyard while you dine. Bring the kids or not, either works!
And last but not least, The Union Oyster House on the Freedom Trail in Boston is the oldest operating restaurant in Boston as well as the entire United States. They are a national historic landmark and have been open continuously since 1826. Several Presidents have eaten here dating back to our very first POTUS, George Washington. J.F.K. and his family were regulars of the Union Oyster House and preferred dining in the privacy of their upstairs area and had a private booth named, The Kennedy Booth.
Serving everything from lunch to dinner and desserts, check out their menu. They specialize in seafood but also have plenty of choices like chicken, burgers and steaks. Oh, and oysters of course :) The Union Oyster House is "kid friendly" and has a ton of history on their walls which makes for fun conversation while dining.
