The ambiance is cozy and funny and the food is great. I had an awesome bowl of lobster soup and an epic lobster roll. The food is not cheap, but of course you can't get any better if you want to eat fresh lobster. I've had a lobster roll at SF fisherman's warf but the Old Port's was much better... More

My wife and I went here for lobster rolls and were very impressed. Rolls were good, they had fresh ice tea and were very helpful. The food delivery person even grabbed me another beer so I didn't have to wait in the long line of people ordering food. Very pleased overall.

We had lunch here. Opted for a signature roll and a salad. BOTH items had 'stuff' in them that's not suppose to be in food. Happily, the front order taker helped us out, since the server/busboy(?) was unable to.

OK, maybe not the same day but I didn't fancy writing two reviews. I go here for the lobster rolls and calamari, because they are awesome. I'm not entirely sure what else I can put here, delicious, fresh. I love the atmosphere. My only regret is I live in Europe so only here here 6 or so times a year.

My husband ordered the calamari which was huge ( it came with a coleslaw and a side). I had the Lobster Bisque soup and our son had the nuggets. My husband and I both liked our food they were really good, I think the chicken nugget was just ok, my son did not finish the fries. The food is a... More

Went for lunch and shared a few dishes and it was great, had the lobster roll it was delicious, the lobster cakes not so great the mussels in white wine were good. There was a line up, and the door is not very wide for people to get in and out. Very friendly atmosphere I would go there again.

We had clam chowder, calamari and Maine lobster rolls. All were good, served quickly and tasty. The restaurant had tables inside and on the walk in front. We were outside and had a nice California evening.

Parking was great, and the food was pretty good. My friend's lobster was a bit dry, but mine and my husband's was good.

No wonder there are lines and a bunch of trip advisor and restaurant awards in the window. It's a casual place but the food is fantastic and the casual atmosphere at picnic benches inside was great. The staff were crazy busy but more attentive than most other restaurants we've been too. This is a definite stop and we WILL be... More
