We've seen this place many times and finally decided to give it a go. My husband had fish tacos which he liked. I had a clam roll which was too doughy & not enough clams. The food is not commensurate to qualify for their prices which, I think, are high. Would not eat here again.

There is a place called The Lobster Pound, and this was next to it on the other side. SOOO glad we ate here. Freshest seafood and outdoor dining by the beach and harbor

The best Lobster Roll ever! The food and service was great. We had a fabulous time. Sitting on the water was great. It was a wonderful experience.

We just hosted a large group and they were super to deal with. So fun! So hospitable! IF you are in the area, you must stop by.

We live in Maine and have driven by many times. We decided to try it today and had a great meal. My daughter has food allergies and they were very accommodating and friendly. It is a very clean, comfortable and relaxed environment. We will defiantly go back this summer.

The food is amazing. Kids can play while parent can relax and enjoy. The sunsets perfect in the summer to take really good family photos with the water behind. Best Lobster rolls

It's a shack as called but the lobster was always sweet! We didn't really feel like 'fine' dining. We went a few times that June.

The only good thing about this place is its location and view. The clam chowder was whole clams cut up potatoes in milk. The fried clams were the worst I've ever had. The service was just as bad as the food. Way to expensive
