Terrific Family Restaurant

There are no shortage of waterfront dining opportunities in this stretch of Maine - we saved this one for last. The location - Superb! Length of wait without a reservation? Very Reasonable! Menu - Very versatile, from the atypical Maine seafood fare to the nightly specials - great choices. We had a... read more

We ordered from the bar menu and enjoyed our dinner and drinks overlooking the harbor. Staff is very pleasant but don't get there at 6 or you'll be waiting for a table.

Great place to stroll & view the changing harbor scene, watch for one of the tall ships to head in or out, picture opportunities abound

Dinner on the deck overlooking Camden harbor is a relaxing way to spend an evening. The view is lovely and interesting. We had oysters, calamari, lazy lobster and fried clams.

The food is average. The drinks are sloppy and not made professionally. During our meal, the waitstaff cleaning tables spilled someone else's water all over the floor splashing it onto one of our party.

Average seafood restaurant. Although their lobster stew is off the charts. Friendly staff. Very busy place in the summer. Be prepared to wait for a table.

Highly recommend the view and the food! We had the chowder, house salad, and lobster risotto. Plenty of food for two. The drinks were delicious too!
