first off, the prices are fantastic! the more lobsters you buy, the cheaper they are! what really sold me was the atmosphere. on my visit, a musician was playing out of the patio and the tunes carried easily inside. Also, the guy behind the counter was super friendly. He even threw in an extra clam chowder for us. Overall, a... More

I had lunch here with my husband on a rainy October day. We arrived just after noon and the place was not too busy. This is a pleasant place, very clean, where you order at the counter. I ordered a bowl of lobster bisque and my husband the fish and chips. Though there were three couples in line ahead of... More

Yes the "lobster was flowing our of the roll" but that there was only a soup-spoon of lobster in the roll, on a very thick bed of lettuce for $17. What a rip off!

We had hoped to find a lobster place off the beaten track, but after Columbus Day, most of those places are closed. However, we found this place on the main drag in Freeport - a live band was playing and we sat outside. Great New England clam chowder, and my husband and i got a chopped salad with lobster -...

This restaurant had tasteful and quality food. You go to the counter to order what you want. When you pay for it they give you a pager that buzzes when your food is ready. They are very efficient. The food was hot and fresh. We each ordered a fish basket. It was so much food we could have ordered one... More

When we first came in, the restaurant is pretty "meh". There's an order counter and seating, maybe a step above Micky Ds but definitely fancy. The prices seemed inflated, but we were famished and figured right here in downtown, high rent and all. I got the Haddick Sandwich and Hubby got the Lobster Roll. Wow. I was told the fish... More
