Our family visited this restaurant before we returned to the city. This is a popular restaurant and we have been here before. Two people had the hot turkey sandwich ($9) which was very good. Real pieces of turkey. My son had the large clams and chips ($13). Although the clams were good, the amount... read more

Tried this once for brkfst, not bad. Went back with guests for dinner, big mistake, four of us and only 1 person happy with their meal. Fried clams were chewy, 2 of us had lobster rolls each 1 had 2 tablespoons of lobster meat. The person that got scallops was happy except that she asked for a glass of seltzer... More

We eat here every time we're in town. Order the fish cakes & beans or the rappie pie. So delicious! Date meringue pie for dessert.

I love their hot lobster sandwich, it's always been a family Favorite through the years and different owners. I will say the portion size has been shrunk with each new owner it seems. New plates being smaller are noticeable to us regulars lol That being said, the flavour is always the same and that means a lot. The desserts here... More

Food is okay but I don't know what the odor is when you walk in, but it's enough to keep me from wanting to EVER go back. Whatever it is, it seems to get worse with each passing year.

This was the best hot lobster sandwich I have ever had. It was served with perfect crisp fries and coleslaw. My friend had an equally good omelet and seafood chowder. We will definitely be returning.

They had fresh clams & scallops. We wanted fresh haddock but they only had frozen available. This is unfortunate because we learned the other seafood restaurants in the area had fresh haddock. Most of the scallops were gritty. The clams were ok but a little rubbery.

The place reminds me of an old diner. The decor is plain and simple and there isn't a lot of private space to talk - open with people sitting close by. It's often packed at lunch time. Even though a busy spot, the food is usually very quick. The hot lobster was good, fries nice and hot. My guest had... More

great food, good service try the desert! Fish cakes, we loved it. If you want tasty home cooked meals this place is a must. The choices are many to include home made deserts.
