Great lobsters at a great price

Two shedders for $25 in a plain unprentious lobster house with a view of the little harbor ...non touristy and simple...good cocktails and great lobsters

Good food at a good price. Also has a full bar which we did not need but others might. you can get a great lobster (no kidding, we are in lobsterville!) at a good price. Friendly service and feels like being part of the town.

We ate at the Harbor Cafe all three mornings we were visiting Deer Isle. Each time, we tried something different, and every meal was delicious. My dad particularly enjoyed the eggs Benedict, and I recommend the sausage and cheese omelette. Don't forget home fries and homemade muffins, too!

We had a reservation and were seated right away. Service was prompt and the lobsters were great. The kids enjoyed picking out coloring books which kept them occupied till their dinner came. Desserts were also fantastic. Definitely someplace we'd go back to.

We stopped in Stonington for a quick lunch. We got the Hungarian mushroom soup , the lobster roll and fried haddock. All were great. The desserts looked tempting, but we resisted. 😀. Service was great also. Will come back.

Casual atmosphere. Service was good. I had the fried haddock sandwich for lunch which was fantastic. My husband had the lobster roll which was average. The blueberry pie was fantastic.

The fried haddock sandwich and fish and chips dinners are both great. The Lobster meals are quite good. The Downtown Burger is also a good choice. Order the french fried onion rings. They are homemade and the serving is huge, Desserts are great, just had no room left. It doesn't look like it has a bar but it serves some... More

There is no premise of fine dining here; but the food is fresh and delicious and suits the cozy local atmosphere very nicely. Right in the heart of Stonington...
