  • We had pizza and a beer at Cockram Mill and really enjoyed it. The hours are limited but I would say it deserves a visit. The food is good and the staff very friendly.

  • Longfin grill is a food truck, heavy on seafood options. It is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. They make pizzas only on a call ahead order system on Thursdays. They have canned drinks and bottled water available. We went on a Sunday around 2 pm. The only seating was picnic tables around the grounds. The Cockram grist mill was open to walk around and look at a slice of history.
  • Beautiful place! Just absolutely amazing views! The food truck had a grumpy dude working it, but boy could he cook some great food! Try the fried crab sandwich!
