What can I say, roadside eaterie which has LOADS of character, from the tanks of lobsters to the kitchen behind the counter. Great food, cooked fresh. You can also buy lobster or have it cooked to take away. Don't dress up - call in and enjoy. Very small, so expect it gets swamped in summer... Great!

Just down the road from me so I'm there anytime they are open. Great fresh food always friendly staff. They have helped me by packing lobsters to stay alive and fresh for a long cross-country flight.

We used to eat here but prices went up and food quality and quantity went Down so we found another place to eat fried fish. You order at a counter so there really isn't any service but some of the employees offer some friendly looks when you came in or place an order. This place is really better for take... More

I tried twice to get the best clam chowder I've had,but to no avail. They don't seem to want to make it anymore. Maybe because of the price of clams,or they make more money making you buy something else. If you want a 5 star rating start making the chowder you are famous for. It was even on TV chronicle....

We heard of this place not once but three times from a friend. Believe me they have the best lobsters I've ever eaten. They pick the lobster out right in front of you...lobsters that have just been caught. Then they cook it to perfection. I had other lobsters other places, but this was the best whole lobster of all the... More

This is a perfect little place to stop in for a quick bite or pick up some food to take home. The prices are great, the product is fresh and it's right on the way to Harpswell. We got lots of food for lunch...lobster rolls, steamers, seafood chowder (which was loaded with stuff) and cold beers. We sat outside and... More
