Very pricy. Had a chicken salad sandwich, lobster roll and 2 drinks for $37. Food was good. Smallest lobster roll we had ever seen. Personnel were nice, but won't be back.

So sorry you were disappointed with our Lobster Roll and the price. Our prices are priced accordingly with what I have to pay for the Maine lobster, shipping Fed Ex fresh to my door overnight. All my other regular customers are raving over the Lobster Roll we are serving. If you haven't read articles lately lobster meat has gone up... More

That was disappointing, but the lady said no more fried food of any kind. I guess that will keep us all healthier... groan. But, the clam chowder was excellent. Lots of clams and very tasty. The lobster roll was very good, especially for Florida. The crab cake was nice, no peppers and stuff like that, but you can certainly get... More

So glad you enjoyed my new menu. Unfortunately until my website info is changed the menu can't be changed on trip advisor. Hopefully the website info will be changed over the weekend. We have gone a more healthier route. Clam chowder, lobster bisque, Maine. Lobster roll, lump crab cake, tarragon Shrimp Sandwich, baked Haddock with a Lemon Basil, ,butter sauce,... More

If you can't travel up to New England for a lobster roll, some authentic fried clams, clam chowder, lobster bisque, etc., or a bottle of "Moxie", then A La Carte is the place to go. A charming little cottage, decorated inside with memorabilia from the Red Sox and New England Patriots bringing back many fond memories for former Bostonians, including... More

Lunch was great, best seafood at the beach! Lobster, scallops, crab cakes we tried them all and all were good. A bit pricey, but portions are large and top quality food! I will come back!

My Dad and I visited this place because we are both seafood lovers. We work for the same company in the Beaches area and we always try to find unique places once a week. I'm so glad we came here. The fried shrimp was some of the best I've had. It was cooked to perfection. I highly recommend going here... More

We are so happy you enjoyed your lunch with us. We are a true mom & pop operation. My husband is the only chef in the kitchen and everything is made to order so sometimes it may take a little longer then other places because we want our food to be prepared the best it can be cooked. I think... More

Our small family of five arrived for lunch to find a neat looking little restaurant. We were drawn here by the TripAdvisor reviews but were quickly disappointed. While we waited to be seated, the only occupied table was served two dishes. The customer politely said "this isn't what I ordered." The lady that served them shocked all of us by... More
