This Weekend at Jake Moon

Greetings from Clarksville

So if you haven't got the word, the area’s only Lobster Shack Is in full operation, and the lobsters are moving out at a steady clip! Some things you should know--a reservation is a good idea, especially if you are looking for a lobster, which tend to sell out on busier nights. You also can request sized lobsters:1, ½, ¾, 2 pounds, etc., if we have advanced notice, although we do have a selection on hand most of the time. The prices have been running reasonable, with a 1 ¼ Lobster Bake running $28, a 1 ½ at $35. A la carte lobsters are available, and don't forget the New England Clam Bake, which is also quite popular for those less inclined to work for their supper. A bake includes fresh local corn, steamed clams, Cole slaw, watermelon, and baked potato. And if you missed the news last week, we are in the middle of a bumper crop year for Golden Chanterelles (as well as other mushrooms). Chef managed to forage another load of this highly praised Delice du Bois, and You can be sure he will be covering the brunch and dinner menu with these golden jewels! A first course he will be offering is the Chanterelles sautéed and finished quickly with green peppercorns, brandy, fresh cream and sour dough toast points. Chanterelle Alfredo Pasta will also make the menu, and the “golden omelette,” with caramelized shallots, chives, and fresh mozzarella will continue to be offered at

"A Bow and Banjo," our live music for brunch, will return this week with a surprise guest sitting in for Janet. They play every Sunday from 11:00-1:00 pm .
