Great Lobster Dinner

Nice location away from all the tourism of North Conway, we had about a 45 minute wait on a Saturday night. The Lobster Dinner for Two was plentiful and affordable (clam chowder was delicious!). We also enjoyed the fried calamari and the Mojito was well made. Service was okay.

Been around the mountains looking for fresh seafood - and this place was quite the find. The lobster was tender and tasty...and the staff made it easy to stay a while. The wine suggestions and specials coupled with a delicious meal from start to desserts made me and my family so happy that on our way out we made reservations... More

After a long day of playing at storyland I asked our special guest ( 6 year old neighbor who is going through some really hard times) what she wanted for dinner and she said lobster. So I took my 3 daughters and this child here because I've driven by many times. I should of taken the hint when on a... More

Ate here last night, had crabmeat stuffed mushrooms which were delicious and my boyfriend and I had the Dinner for Two special (2, 1lb lobsters with chowders and sides) and everything was excellent. Homemade chowder is a must have!!! Also ordered a bottle of Mark West wine which they were running on special.

We have spent two summers in New Hampshire and have stopped here both times. We love the atmosphere and the food. Our waitress was super friendly and attentive. In fact we happened to have the same waitress both times! It does not feel touristy. The homemade rolls are delicious.

We, a party of 11, ate dinner here on July 6th. We had to wait about 15 minutes for a table while they pushed several together to accommodate our larger group. The hostess and two servers that we had were very friendly. The chowder was very good, as were the fresh baked rolls. Several members of our party were disappointed... More

The special before 6PM was 2- 1lb lobster dinners for only $35.00. Great deal. Dinner comes with choice french fries, onion rings or cole slaw and choice of soup or salad. You are started with dinner rolls/butter. House wine was pretty good. Clam chowder was thick,creamy and loaded with clams and potatoes. Chowder had good flavor and the clams tasted... More

Asked the locals for a recommendation on a restaurant for a good lobster dinner. Quite a few recommended this place so we tried it. The lobster dinner was fresh and delicious at a fair price. Went around 6pm before the larger crowd hit. Server was very nice and food arrived quickly. Hostess was very pleasant and the rest of the... More

While visiting the ledges,we stumbled across the lobster trap for lunch. The service was friendly and the food was about average, it was nothing to complain about or rave over. The prices were average and they ran their early lunches until 6:00. If you are looking for a decent meal with decent costs and not a huge tourist crowd, then... More
