Great eateries near great fisheries
Charlie mentioned something that set off a favorite subject of mine... fine dining establishments associated with great fishing!

Let's hear them...

I'll start with the Chatham Squire on Main in Chatham, a two-handed cast from the famed Big Girl Bar and Monomoy Refuge, Nauset and Chatham Inlet. Get a little softshell clam on your butter and wash it down with great local buzzards bay brew...

Juro, I am all over this one. The A-Bar on the banks of Henry's Fork of the Snake River for burgers and beers. Sir Scotts Oasis in Manhattan MT for some of the best aged steaks around.

I've got 3 breakfast venues to choose from when the tide goes slack at my bayside spot. Grumpy's for stick to you ribs portions, the Marshside for a tad more effete fare and the Cafe at Northside Marina on Sesuit Harbor.

But nothin beats a fine lunch of the canned cornbeef or spam at the Lil' General in Lovely Bay, Acklins. Only heaven is better.

And if you prefer going over to the Darkside of fishing once in a while there is always Leo's :Eyecrazy:

After a day chasing Atlantics on the infamous Ridge Pool of the Moy in Ballina Co. Mayo, Cafolla's Restaurant "up the street" (about 3 mins. walk from the river) used to be the best spot on the planet for a heavy cholesterol fix (a.k.a. real man's mixed grille :lildevl: ) They didn't have a liquor licence but the waitresses would go across the street to pick you up a pint to wash it down :smokin:

Great thread!

I like a morning of good hard fishing, then a breakfast of sour cream rollups for lunch at the Steamboat Inn on the North Umpqua


edit: Cleats allowed!

I'm partial to a couple over easy, with sausage, home fries, English breakfast tea and don't forget Grandma's bread.

Falcon's Ledge Lodge in the Uinta Mountains of NE Utah has excellent gourmet-type food and huge country breakfasts--my wife and I stayed there last summer. FIshing was good too, smaller uncrowded local rivers. BYOB, though. :razz:

Still on the east coast.. up on the North Showah there's the unique and delicious Mad Martha's for breakfast when the tide goes slack at the Mouth of the Merrimack.

Further north you can feed your seafood jones and hand-feed a pack of huge resident stripers that live under the docks of Markey's and Browns across the street after hitting the crystal clear surf and inlet at Hampton.

Chesterfield general store for huge homemade sandwiches and a tall boy Rail City Pale Ale. Lunch of the gods. Cleats allowed.

5 min from the banks of the Westfield E. Branch.

I suggest everyone try a gourmet supper at the Gite du Mont Albert in the Parc de la Gaspesie, Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec, after a day of salmon fishing on the Riviere St. Anne, hiking or skiing in the park.

Take out...
Nothing like biting into a cold piece of KFC held in one hand and running the boat with the other while your buddy fights a SBFT in the bow. I think we had Krispy Kremes for breakfast that morning as well. The defibrillator was an option on the Jones but worth every penny :wink: .

Like I said in the other post, Chico hot springs in the Paradise Valley, Montana near the banks of the Yellowstone. Fantastic food!

And you Striper Bum’s on the north shore, how about Woodman’s? :tongue:

Let's see...

There's Pat's Country Kitchen in Old Saybrook, which is a neat place to chow down after chasing sunrise stripers on the CT coast.

Then there's the Spurwink Restaurnant in Cape Elizabeth / Scarborough Maine....great food before or after fishing.

And finally there's a great little place in Pulaski that I've hit the past few years after spending the day chasing pike on Lake Ontario. I can't remember the name, but it has great pastas, sandwiches, and the like all available for sit-down eating. Cleats allowed for river anglers, too.
