A friend and I enjoyed a delicious lobster dinner here, as well as great hospitality from the host (owner Dennis?) and great service from Heidi. Even the wine was good as well as a generous pour. A very comfortable ambience, and a place I'd definitely head back to when I'm back in that area.

Had a great experience. My server Heidi was very professional and pleasant. The food was excellent and the dessert ( chocolate cake) was the best I've ever had. I would if it asked give it five stars and i highly recommend it.

Looking for great food and service? Your search is over. Heidi and Jim were our servers, they took excellent care of us. The clams were very tasty, lobster was simply outstanding, Desert and coffee completed our wonderful meal.

The steamers and lobsters I had for dinner were in the ocean earlier in the day. I had the lobster special, $13.99 for dinner! It had so much flavor. The steamers appetizer were made with onions and spices. Dennis, the owner, helped guide me to correctly clean the clams and open the lobster. Such a delightful place. Not fancy, but... More

We had the fried clams dinner since it is a regional specialty, but it was very disappointing. They were completeley tasteless. Don't know if the restaurant is to blame or the clams.
