I dined here with a group of eight friends and I was surprised at the variety on the menu. One of my friends recommended the lobster roll. We went for the early bird specials and got the lobster roll for $11.99. It came with tasty chunks of lobster meat on a toasted roll. I was pleased that it was not... More

Two couples went there & we each ordered the Fried Seafood Platter for Two ($26.95). It came with fried whole-belly clams, shrimp, scallops, & mild white fish. This special also included a cup of their delicious, creamy clam chowder for each of us (or a salad), & we could each have a side. My husband & I both ordered the... More

Ate here with a large group, the food was excellent and service very good even though they were very busy. They have an early bird luncheon menu which runs all day until 6:00 PM and the prices were very reasonable. They have been in business for several years and the food is always consistent. We always try to eat there... More

Seafood platter is scrumptious. The pan fried Haddock delicious. Generous portions. Pleasant atmosphere and staff. Do not recommend the lobster roll.

We have been going to this cute restaurant during our annual vacation for many years now, and never miss a year. We usually get our favorite dishes, which we recommend highly - Lobster Pie and Shrimp Parmigiano. The lobster is so sweet ,and the cheese & sauce on the shrimp (and the shrimp themselves) are to die for. Do not... More

This place is a little out of the way. The Fried Shrimp plate was very good. Pricing is on the high side. The family also had Fried Clams. They were very good. Cooked just right.

We had originally tried this restaurant on a Tuesday and found it closed. However, we went during a torrential rainstorm and even though we arrived about 5;45pm we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. We were surprised to find empty tables when we walked into the dining room and didn't understand why the wait time. Our waitress... More

don't get caught in this "trap". service was not that great and the food was so-so. lobster in lobster pie was chewy, small pieces and not tasty at all. the clam chowder was the best part of the meal but not worth stopping here. plenty of other restaurants in the area to choose from.

This was a recommendation from a local. The service was not necessarily upscale but friendly and the food was excellent. We had the lobster tail and a clam chowder. Very well prepared and reasonable although it was in season so not sure about other months. Would definitely return.

Ok so it’s a seafood place, so no surprise that their Italian food is terrible. The meatballs are the worst tasting meatballs I have ever had. No one got sick, but boy was the taste horrible. The lobster was the cheap soft shell kind, and it was overpriced as expected. The drawn butter wasn’t great either. I wish it was... More
