We were dissapointed with our vist. We have some fantastic bbq joints back it pig country. If my meal was an indicator this place couldn't survive. Coleslaw was just chopped cabbage no salad dressing. Beef brisket was dry and chewing approaching jerky. Onion rings were under cooked. Fried breading raw onion.

Seafood and service were average. Bbq was cold; it was the pits. Overheard others rave and wondered why they picked on us. Other reviewers seem positive about the place but based on our experience we'll go elsewhere.

Had a great dinner here. Two in our family don't like seafood, so this was a great choice. The barbecue was excellent, and I'm told the lobster was amazing. My kids loved the lobster Mac and cheese.

Being from San Antonio, its hard to find some great smoked/ bbq on the east coast, especially where I am from in pa. the only person that I have finally trained is my husband, but he can't do it all the time. So taking a vacation to the beautiful state of Maine, and driving up and down route 1, we... More

Great place, great food, great staff. The portions were huge, in fact my husband and I shared one plate and were stuffed. The staff from the waitress to the owner were wonderful and so so friendly. They made us feel like old good friends. The prices are also great! Wonderful place...

Since we are in Maine I wanted a lobster roll but when I saw pulled pork with apple cider vinegar I wanted that too. Our server offered us a side of pulled pork to go with our lobster rolls. The lobster roll was excellent and the pulled pork was sooo good. I know it sounds like a weird combination but... More

Really enjoyed my lobster roll! The potato salad was also delicious - not too much mayo or salt. All was FRESH, lobster was sweet and delicious. Definitely will return!

We thought we would try out this place after passing it earlier in the day. The parking lot was very busy, and most of the tables were full. But as soon as we entered, the waitress was right there to greet us and go over the menu with us, even though she was obviously Busy. We found a picnic table... More

We stopped here because they offered lobster and BBQ. It is a funky little place next to the gas station where we get gas. They had seating inside and outside. It was chilly and windy and we went indoors. We ordered for different meals. I had the lobster roll with coleslaw and onion rings. The rings were amazing. The lobster... More
