Suspended on pilings over the waters of Hadlock Cove, the seasonal Islesford Dock Restaurant counts MDI summer resident Martha Stewart among its fans. A few years ago, the domestic diva blogged about a foggy, 30-minute boat trip to Little Cranberry Island (also called Islesford) and the meal she enjoyed there: oysters on the half shell (“stellar!”); Great Hill blue cheese salad with romaine, grapes, walnuts, and maple vinaigrette (“wonderful!”); and porterhouse steak (“yummy!”). “I have so much fun here,” Stewart wrote. “Great Maine atmosphere!”
