“This is the best restaurant down by the Pier. But make sure you distinguish it from the Shibleys softserve and fast food across the street. The eat in restaurant is the best in Alton by the docks on the water. They have a nice deck on the back of the restaurant that is right on the Lake with a great view of Alton Bay. ”
