Only place around that was open on a Monday. Very accommodating to the whims of our party of eight. The food was excellent, the waitress and staff were friendly and fun. Would go back again.

FF is what you would expect from a touristy restaurant. Fried food, a long wait to be seated, spotty service. Eh. It's probably better off season.

Though it's a little drive from most places, the seafood is fresh, well prepared, and the portions are generous. Our service at lunch was very good; prompt, friendly, and courteous. The restaurant is bright, clean and comfortable, with great views of the harbor. Prices are reasonable for fresh seafood in Maine during the summer. Stonington is a fun town and... More

Just touring around and was told by a local that this was the place to eat. Stopped for lunch and were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. Had an outside table looking at the water. Lunch was excellent.

The hostess finally came by... More

Good menu -- lobster -- brightly lit, large dining room, a gift shop for you to stand in as you wait to be seated. Local lobstermen were celebrating in the bar, a neon-lit corner. Great view during the day. Don't go for the atmosphere. Just order some drinks and tie on a lobster bib.

My wife had the lobster that is out of the shell and served in butter; I had mine whole. In either case, we have had better and we have had worse. The lobster is fresh and tasty. They were probably a bit young to the shell because the meat had not grown into the shell and the shell were pretty... More
