Savor the seafood, and the scenery, at this popular restaurant with great water views
There’s a lot to savor at the Diamond’s Edge Restaurant at the Inn at Diamond Cove. It starts with the menu, of course, heavy on fresh, taste-tempting local seafood like grilled swordfish, lobster rolls and a traditional lobster bake, but with everything from beef tenderloin to grilled street corn on tap. Desserts, like a blueberry and strawberry shortcake duet, are to die for, cocktails are creative and the beer and wine lists extensive. But you’ll also savor the scenery, since the restaurant is right by the water – just steps away from the marina. Sit in the dining room or on the deck or lawn for lunch or dinner. The restaurant is housed in the former quartermaster’s storehouse, part of the old Fort McKinley.
