Even if you're not staying at the Wauwinet, hop aboard the hotel's free shuttle boat, the Wauwinet Lady, at Straight Wharf for the short, scenic cruise to lunch or dinner. Chef David Daniels (Acqua in San Francisco, Ventana Inn in Big Sur, XV Beacon in Boston) puts a gourmet spin on standard dishes: His steak is a Kobe sirloin au poivre with cognac sauce, and he gussies up mac and cheese with cave-aged Gruyère, Gouda, Pouligny chèvre, and truffles. The island-famous hamburger—served only at lunch—is part Kobe beef, part short rib, and topped with Dijon mustard, capers, and caramelized onions. French pastry chef Serge Torres finishes the meal with candied cherry tomatoes and vanilla ice cream or bananas Napoleon. The Wauwinet also has the most extensive wine list on the island. In summer, lunch ($21 for the prix fixe menu) is served on a deck overlooking the water; at dinnertime, and in cooler weather, a crackling fire warms the elegant dining room.

Open early May through late October.
