Here's a kid-friendly place that won't cause you to regress. Colorful murals of happy dolphins adorn the walls inside. The kids' menu looks like a coloring book page and comes with crayons. Time-honored treats for finicky eaters include grilled-cheese sandwiches cut into fours (with or without the crust) and "psketti." I can't vouch for the deliciousness of these meals, but the more sophisticated adult fare features local and not-so-local seafood. The red snapper and grouper are caught off the Aruban coast; York Harbor fishermen supply the Maine lobster. You can pass a death sentence on any crustacean in the lobster tank, but crabs are king here. The tasty snow crabs are prepared with herbs, garlic, and butter. In season, soft-shell crabs come lightly fried with fresh tartar sauce. The service is accommodating, and the '80s retro decor and nightly live music at the adjacent bandstand is fun.
