Not fancy, but fresh and generous portions

We stopped for lunch while shopping in Freeport. I was worried that a restaurant on the main drag of an outlet town would be mediocre and overpriced, but was pleasantly surprised. Nice, clean interior with checked tablecloths and an extensive menu. Not cheap, but good value for money in... read more

Easy-going restaurant for the whole family and the price is right. Great menu items including, many types of seafood. This is always a plus with everyone having different favorites. The outside of the restaurant did not look like the typical lobster or seafood restaurant. Don’t let this fool you! We almost passed by this terrific restaurant. Dining area is very... More

I was wanting to try this place out but the sign out front said Closed for the Season. The back door had a clock sign pointing to 11:30 but at noon or after each day I went it was closed

We stopped for lunch while shopping in Freeport. I was worried that a restaurant on the main drag of an outlet town would be mediocre and overpriced, but was pleasantly surprised. Nice, clean interior with checked tablecloths and an extensive menu. Not cheap, but good value for money in comparison to other similar restaurants. A nice lunch spot for sure.

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!
