Casual dining restaurant with a large attached bar. Often has low priced twin lobsters for $13-15. good variety, Raw bar a pleasant surprise, consistently fresh when we've been there. But expect casual touches like plastic baskets for your fried seafood, and smaller drinks with smaller prices.

Power breakfast or lunch in the heart of Easton's historic village area. Arrive early on weekends to avoid a wait. Important, innovative farm-to-table food. Also open several evenings (Thurs-Sat starting at 6pm), primarily small plates and desserts. Impressive mixology. Great "after dinner" place as well as tops for breakfast with a price point to match.

Buddy's Union Villa is a dive bar so iconic, hollywood comes here to film movies. Great south-shore pub-style pizza (the wife likes the "burnt edges" style) paired with a nice greek salad is our favorite. Full bar. Trivia nights, Karoke nights, call ahead to see what's up. Live music a couple nights a week.
