Casual, BYOB, SIDE-of-the-Road with an East Coast Flair! Real live Bostonian's taking orders and boiling lobsters! Simple menu, fresh east coast seafood. Highly recommended!

Butch picks this seafood up at the Aspen Airport everyday, It's fresh and perfect. Opens at 4:30 get ready to eat or place an order and it will be ready when you want it. Order Lobster a few hours or a day ahead.
