A fine place for breakfast or lunch. Not very innovative but fine very the ordinary. Can accommodate a large group.

We had been in the area for 4 days and still hadn't found a good seafood restaurant. Apparently all the good restaurants close mid-October. We were driving back from spending the day in Rockland and saw this restaurant and thought maybe we could get some good lobster here. Not! We both ordered the lobster pie. It came in a ramekin...

This is an adorable little roadside rest. We went mid day on a Wednesday and the clientele were all older. The waitresses were sweet and the food was good. Lots of comfort food. It looked popular but quiet(again the clients were older) stop by this place, it's adorable and yummy.

They say you should check out the parking lot around a restaurant for the number of cars. Okay!! The Offshore always has cars and for good reason. The food is great. The staff friendly and the value you can't beat. From breakfast to lunch to dinner you can't go wrong and they have a full bar. A must try. Don't... More

The food was very average and not well served. The appetizers and entrees were served within 3 minutes of the trip to the salad bar. The entrees were cold by the time we could get to them. Not a good experience

Good basic food. Nothing fancy, fair prices and where the locals eat. Seafood was fresh and servings ample.

Our food was mediocre at best. Service was on the slow, inattentive side. My baked potato was old and tired. My husband's haddock sandwich was adequate but nothing to write home about. My baked haddock was overcooked and dry. The saving graces were the loaf of bread and the salad bar, both of which were pretty good. We were craving... More

We literally stumbled on "The Offshore" when passing by. Unsure of what we were in for, we stopped by for lunch. This is a unassuming sort of place. You walk in the door and are greeted by a waitress who tells you to choose your table. In our lunch experience, the waitress (Rosie?) just couldn't have been more helpful, professional,... More

OK I was ready to assume that, since were were in the lobster capital of the world, the lobster in the lazy lobster would be fresh. WRONG.Glad I asked the waitress (who whispered the word "frozen" because it's blasphemous) The waitress said the boiled lobster was fresh -- well I would hope it'd be ALIVE - but I'm a Maine...
