We visited this on a cold windy, snowy Friday. We were pleasantly welcomed and our server, Nancy, could not have been nicer and more accomodating.

Tie on your bib and wield your hammer to tuck into two whole lobsters, with baked potato and corn on the cob. Can't go wrong.

Having been driving by here for a long time we finally stopped by for lunch. It was late and we knew we would be going out for a big dinner so ate light. I had lobster bisque and my wife had the haddock chowder. Mine was creamy and delicious and hers was quite a treat...a large cut of fish in... More

One of the reasons we go to Maine every year. The LC never disappoints. Always a great meal, breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We've been going there for the last three years, and will be back next year. don't miss this gem of a restaurant.

For being that close to the water the lobster wasn't all that fresh. Prices for off season seemed high

We have tried this spot for breakfast. Nothing out of the ordinary on the menu, slow service despite few dining. The coffee had sat on the brewer too long, when served poached eggs, they almost slid off of the plate in being set down on the table. The view isn't bad from the windows...and do have to admit, the parkinglot... More

This is an old-fashioned Maine waterfront restaurant, and if the sign out front weren't so blindingly bright, we might have enjoyed the ocean, right across the street. As it was, we were left to enjoy the food. I had a lobster casserole, a whole shelled lobster in about a quarter pound of butter, and the lobster was perfectly cooked. This... More

We go there a couple times a year. The view of the ocean is wonderful and the food and drinks are plentiful!. Melissa was great and put up with all of our silliness. We were there for lunch and drinks and back the next day for breakfast...also great!!
