Great restaurant

We had a great meal here and really enjoyed the atmosphere. It is a little more upscale in decor but still comfortable. Nice wines by the glass. It was also quiet so we could enjoy our conversation without shouting over music. We would make a point of returning on our next visit

Wanted to eat outside on the water and ended up there because there wasn't much else open. Food was average and the service was VERY slow. If it were busy you might expect slow service/food but there were lots of empty tables and we were there almost 2 hours for chowder and an appetizer.

Was referred by the Windjammer Schooner staff. Arrived late in the evening and was greeted by delightful staff. The atmosphere was delightful, the wait staff came by frequently. Food was great, hot and impeccable staff. Beautiful view of the bay while eating...

It is on the water and it has views if you sit on the outside deck. If you are inside, it has a cozy atmosphere. The food was pretty good - not the best in Camden, but definitely good. The service was quirky, but pleasant

Enjoyed our meal and had a great view of the harbour and marina even though we were seated inside. We were seated promptly dispite the fact we did not have reservations and August is a popular month for Camden. We would eat here again.

Beautiful waterfront location. Reasonably priced for lunch. Lobster and corn chowder was delicious as were the fried clams - crisp and light. The coleslaw was awesome, I should have asked for a second portion !. I highly recommend.

Food was excellent. Service made us not want to return. They were not interested in being helpful. I'd say they were overall just rude as other reviews have stated. Failed to bring out silverware, failed to offer refills on drinks and water, they took entree half eaten away as if we were finished or didn't ask if we wanted a... More

Came in on a whim for lunch while walking around the area. Sitting outside gives great view of the activity in the harbor and people watching. The lunch was excellent. Their corn and lobster chowder was delicious and the fried scallops were perfectly cooked with a light crunchy coating which did not overwhelm the taste of the fresh scallops. Paired... More

Stopped by based on the location, but would definitely return for the food. The fish tacos and fried clams were good, but the lamb burger and lobster roll were great.

Lunch was great. Seated outside with great harbor view. Shared lobster corn chowder with my wife. It was creamy but not heavy. Salted just right. Lots of lobster too. Fried clams were perfect. Wife had fish tacos. Dish came with three large tacos. Fish was perfectly cooked and slaw topping was very tasty.
