I can't say it was my favorite meal in Camden but went for lunch. No air conditioning on a hot day so was very warm inside. Our waiter was terrific. Personable, knowledgeable and checked on us often even though he was the acting bartender at the time. Menu has enough choices to please. We had salad and burger and felt... More

Friendly folks, many local beers, home baked desserts, soft drinks in Mason jars, and super lobster mac and cheese. Also fine for folks with children. Right up the hill from the town pier.

Clam chowdah was very good and the biscuit accompanying it was awesome! Portions were good sized, salads were good. Try to get a seat by the window on the second floor. This would be a good restaurant for families. Our server seems somewhat busy.

The haddock chowder was excellent - not too salty. And the lobster ravioli was filling - overall a very good value, plus an authentic taste of upscale Maine fare.

Camden was packed with cars and people, and we just wanted to get out of the sun to eat. Lobster macaroni was very good, as well as the adult grilled cheese. Our server was very nice, and the restaurant was cool and spacious.

Drinks were really high priced compared to neighboring restaurants. Decent food & service. Chowder was very good. Nothing special about the atmosphere though.
