  3. McKelvie's


When out-of-towners ask about the best place for seafood, they are invariably sent to McKelvie's. Just a hop, skip and jump from the waterfront, it is a busy, lively restaurant full of diners who don't mind spending a bit extra for the best. Located in one of the lovely old waterfront buildings that underwent renovation instead of going under the wrecker's ball, McKelvie's was a fire hall constructed over 100 years ago. Now it is a high-ceilinged restaurant decorated with marine artifacts serving fresh seafood dishes like Blackened Salmon, Crunchy Haddock and Panko Herb Crusted Halibut Fillet. Lively and cozy, the restaurant is perfect for a family celebration.
