Dinky’s name stems from the fact that the folks at the Village Marina call their small marina “the best little dink marina in town.” This is a cozy, 68-seat restaurant with a great big view. At sunset, make time to sit at the beautiful African mahogany bar to enjoy beer, wine and a full spirits menu. Dinky’s serves dinner only year-round. The fare is traditional American with a creative flair and includes local fresh seafood, beef, pork, chicken, duck, lamb, pasta, tasty appetizers, a kids' menu and lots of specials. Seafood is the star of the menu, with steamed seafood choices, crab cakes, Blue Crab Ravioli, clams casino and Thai Shrimp & Scallops being some of the favorite items. Friday is prime rib night. Families are welcome, and everything is available for take-out. Reservations are not accepted.
