Authentic beach fare highlights the menu of this inn’s on-site restaurant

You know what makes time on the beach even more perfect? A little Shade. And the Higgins Beach Inn has exactly that waiting for hungry diners or folks looking for a local watering hole. At Shade, the inn’s on-site restaurant, they specialize in sophisticated beach fare: oysters on the half-shell, lobster rolls, fresh salads, burgers and fish tacos. Desserts include Maine blueberry crisp and seasonal sorbets. The atmosphere is refined but casual: the perfect place to grab a craft brew, glass of wine or refreshing cocktail out on the covered three-season patio. Want something even closer to the beach? The Shade Shack serves up hot dogs, lobster rolls, burgers and ice-cold drinks for lunch. At both places, you’ll have it made in the Shade.
