It's like a whole lobster in a brioche bun. Whole claws. Big chunks of lobster. Nothing but lobster very lightly dressed. Pricey but well worth it. Best we've had on this trip. Funny to find with Apple Maps, but it ends up it's right by Rt 128. Go. Enjoy.

We had late lunch for three adults and one child. Onion rings appetizer not greasy but a huge platter of rings. And so much food on the fisherman's platter, all the platters, actually, that we will definitely split one dish between two people next time. Wonderful service, with a three-year-old we kept asking for this or that, and we were... More

Great lobster roll, with a good martini! Nice views with a lively atmosphere, crowded, but in a good way.

Some locals had recommended this place for its food and atmosphere, and the spin on the Massachusetts Accent that is prevalent in the name. My wife, 6 year old, and myself were quite possibly the youngest people in the place for dinner, which was starting to fill up nicely, but now with a crowd of our age. We ordered some... More

Met friends here for lunch. Started with a plate of the fried clams for all of us to share. Light, not greasy or chewy..almost tempura-like, and delicious. Five of us:gone in the blink of an eye. Two of us ordered ahi tuna burgers, one ordered fish and chips, one ordered the seafood stew and one ordered the lobster/avocado/heart of palm... More

We took my parents here for Father's Day breakfast since this was one of the few restaurants that took a reservation. They honored it even though they'd accidentally given away our table to a family with a similar last name, and we were promptly seated on time. The atmosphere is nothing special -- there is one area with nice views... More

This was our first stop and what a stop it was! The clam chowder is "thin" but loaded with clams and excellent flavor, the clams fried in a very light batter and oh-so-sweet and the lobster roll simply can't be matched anywhere. It was a bit out of the way from where we were staying in Rockport but very well... More

We've been going here for years whenever we are heading out of Cape Ann and are hungry. Kathy had a decent piece of steak tonite after out fried clam app. I went with the broiled scollops which were done to perfection, still juicy and plump. Not a fancy place but always a good meal.

Not a great value - food was OK but prices were very high. Noisy. Service was fine. Parking a tad difficult, confusing. Physical location a bit tough to get out of.
