The menu has plenty of selections and the seafood was very fresh. We were told we would receive bread, but after waiting 20 minutes, finally received pita bread. The restaurant was not overly busy at all, but service was slow. The food was very good overall.

Stopped on the way through OOB for Lunch. Out dated decor with slow wait service. Ordered cup of Chowder and Lobster soup - order took over 30 minutes to arrive to the table. The food smelled and tasted freezer burnt and was inedible due to being microwaved. The waitress was informed that the soup was inedible; however, Microwave Chef verbally... More

While staying at Old Orchard Beach we liked the food and outside eating area so much we ended up eating there 3 times. We had soft shelled lobster, clam cakes, whole fried clam rolls. It was all good. The 2 clam cakes were so large that one was saved for lunch the next day. The staff were very friendly and... More

Staff was friendly but a little slow and was not busy. We did have to keep asking for things (like plates and napkins). The kids meals are reasonable, but adult entrees a bit over priced. It's was a good meal but nothing I would go back to.

Very busy place for vacationers but nice during the winter. The food is good and the staff very friendly. The menu is nothing out of the ordinary, but the fish is fresh and clams are really good.

Fried clams can be rubbery or tough but not here. Tender and delicious with a light breading and good value describe the take-out dinner we enjoyed. The haddock was equally tasty. This is a well-run roadside stand that also serves dinner inside and provides excellent customer service. Our window server was helpful, efficient, and fun.

This was walking distance from our hotel. The dinner food was just ok. Lobster chowder not stew was bland. Oysters were not cut off the shell we had to do it ourselves and ask for tabasco and horseradish. The steamers were clean and sweet. Service was friendly. So it was ok average for the area. But, in the morning they... More

I loved the seafood but hated the vegetables which were unfortunately coming from the freezer instead of the garden. Their texture was not at all good.

We came here for supper. Lobster roll was not on the dinner menu but they were able to make us some anyways. My hubby and daughter gave them rave reviews! I had a greek style pizza that was delish! Big serving portions. Will definitely return!
