Great chowder and interesting salads, burgers and seafood. Wait times for tables starting around lunch and dinner of a half hour.

Very popular, fun & interesting decor. Excellent chowder. We would go back. The lobster pizza was great. Don't forget to stop at their bakery around the corner.

This was our first time in Camden and we gambled on a restaurant. It was a winner. Small downstairs but not too loud. The bar does take over when crowded but we have had worse. Our server, Blake was attentive, friendly, and quick. Kudos to him. We had the lobster and two sides. The salad was fresh and tasty and... More

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

I sat down and was basically ignored. The service was terrible. I decided to get my meal to go and the chowder was pretty good, if a bit gritty.

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.

This restaurant had delicious food and a varied menu that allowed everyone in our party to find something they thoroughly enjoyed. The service was absolutely wonderful. We had a waiter (Morgan was his name I believe) who was very helpful and attentive. He also gave us great recommendations of things to do in the area which was a huge help... More

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.
