Thanks to DavidPM and his lovely wife, I got to eat at Bills a few weeks ago.

I'm adding "The Oar" on Block Island to the list here. You can take your dinghy right to the dinghy dock in front of them.

A little further down from the Griswold (half way down Main on the right hand side) is the "Black Seal" where, according to my wife, one can find the best California burger in Connecticut!

SOUNDBOUNDER For $20, you can tie up at Seaport Marine in Mystic for up to 4 hours. It is the closest marina to town and the restaurants. The Daniel Packer Inn is a fun spot to go to.

There is a charge for docking at the public docks unless you have a Milford Landing mooring sticker, and even then there is a time limit.

PuffinIP31 Bene505,

Rams Head Inn is directly on your starboard as you enter Coacles Harbor. They have a couple of guest moorings for boaters who stop in for lunch or dinner. Nice place, fancy restaurant out back, and yes, expensive.

For truly "dock & dine", where you can pull your boat up to a dock, the Town Dock at Mitchell Park in Greenport has a day rate of 50 cents per foot, and you can hit Claudio's (restaurant or clam shack), and all the other restaurants in town. My favorite is "Skippers" in Stonington CT. Their large dock is free for diners, with indoor and outdoor patio service.

John...

christyleigh Tweitz probably has more details but IIRC the Rams Head Inn is actually on what they call Ram Island even though it is connected by an isthmus to the rest of Shelter Island. If you were at the Coecles Harbor Marina look across the water and you are looking at "Ram Island". We took a long bike ride (over 2 isthmus and actually all the way to the spit of sand to your right as you enter Coecles Harbor) to check it out and it seems more of an Inn than a resturant, but we didn't look inside. I don't think there is any water access.
