My wife & I went here for a late lunch. The lobster roll and Cobb salad were good. The service could have been more attentive since it wasn't busy at all, but I would go back again. For some reason the beer on tap wasn't cold at all.

First time in Rockland. There were four of us. We were staying at the Samoset Resort and had golfed so got a late start for dinner. To our amazement we didn't realize everything closes down in this area by 9:00. Went to two restaurants and they just called. Called the Samoset before heading back to see if there restaurant was...

Five days into our Maine vacation and we had eaten all the Lobster we could (if that's humanly possible). We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and thought we would give it a try. Walking in we could see that this was more of a

We've frequently eaten here for burgers which are pretty decent, but to all of a sudden be charged a "mandatory" 15% "service charge" to pick up a takeout order is ridiculous...probably won't be back for awhile...

Today I conducted an experiment between two place in town with wings and TVs. I got an order of Buffalo Wings to go. The women behind the bar was great. I asked her about a beer I'd never heard of that I could drink while waiting for the wings. She couldn't really describe it. So, she poured about 2 inches... More

If we ever get any, that is ... no really, we will get good weather eventually. The food was imaginative and surprisingly good, making for a wonderful all-around experience on a warm, sunny day. It was a pleasure to have so many good things from which to choose, and we can't wait to return.

My husband and I have stopped in several times for lunch, the most recent visit was this past Sunday. We were seated promptly - the place was busy as the NE Patriots were playing. They have a nice menu and lots of options. They have the absolute best fried pickles ever - I have to order them every time. We... More

Nice local downtown restaurant. I had the burger with blue cheese and sweet potatoe fries, husband had the pastrami sandwich sweet potatoe fries. Burger was cooked perfectly and delicious. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Upon leaving they were making popcorn and the aroma was something else. They let me take some home in a take out container. Seems like a... More

Food is average, nothing special by any means. We sat on the patio and a friends credit card fell under the deck. We tried to speak with a manager but there wasn't one at the restaurant. The waitress was rude and said she couldn't help. We were just trying to figure out a way to retrieve the card but no... More
