Awesome food, awesome people

Here in the off season, very pleased this place is open. I had the lobstah roll, wicked good. Seriously, stuffed to the max on a perfectly grilled hot dog bun, lightly sauced with fresh lettuce and celery. It was amazing. She had the burger, looked perfectly cooked, fresh and very juicy.

Loved the lobster roll and everything else we ordered. Quick service. We'll go back, for sure! No negatives.

Sit under the awning in the shade or under the glare of the sun and have a generous portion of food and a cold drink.

Outstanding meal for us ... Kids loved the homemade chips and fried hotdogs! The turkey wrap is large enough to share. PLUS the turkey wasn't packaged turkey ... tasted like the real thing! Tuna wrap was great ... chicken wrap was amazing ... and the kids grilled cheese was great! You must try the sweet potato waffle fries ......there are... More

We decided to stop by The Barnacle on Craigville Beach to see what the new owners were serving. It turns out they have everything from grilled cheese to lobster rolls. The prices are great a cheeseburger is $5.75 for 6oz. angus cooked on a char-broiler. They serve Four Seas ice cream at the same price as the original establishment just... More

Right on Craigsville Beach!! The foods isn't this mornings catch fresh, but its good none the less. Typical snack bar food. Fried calamari, clam strips, fried mozzarella, onion rings and fries. The owner was very friendly and hooked me up with some extras. Can't complain. I definitely recommend it if your looking for a quick bite to eat on the... More

This place was a childhood classic. Grilled cheese or french fries and chocolate shakes at the beach in the little paper trolleys! Now.. I would never go there again.. The prices are absurd.. One chocolate frappe is $8 .. They are have the normal cup size.. What a rook. Family environment? No way-- you'd spend a weeks work of groceries... More

I think the fried clam bellies were actually pretty good, but it's hard to tell because there were so few of them. They gave me enough tartar sauce for a reasonably sized order but not enough clams. The rest of the tray was filled with decent fries and onion rings thought I had to ask for some no-name ketchup that... More

Overall a good lunch! Adults had seafood, the kids had grilled cheese and chicken fingers. Service was quick, drinks were cold, food was hot, what more could you ask for?

We always hit the Barnacle when we go to Craigville Beach as it is right across the street. We love the fried clam strips and crave them in the off-season. Very convenient and tasty but just a little pricey for the amount of food they give you. An order of clam strips with fries will run you over $15.00 for... More
