Maybe it was what I had. But there are SO many other fresh seafood places I would rather go to. I had salmon and it wasn't that good. The ice cream is decent but I would rather go to Lago's for that.

Summer is certainly the best time to indulge in Lobster and Fried Seafood. If you love it as much as I do, you won't be disappointed here. What I like about the Lobster rolls is the ability to order the size and amount you want. I would tend to order to the smaller size since all are filling. I ordered... More

I live near the Beach Plum, and visited today for the first time this year. I think they changed their menu for lobster rolls, because they had it broken down by ounces. Your choices were 6 oz, 8 oz, 12 oz., etc.. I think there were about 6 choices. I don't remember it being like that last year. Anyway, I... More

This casual restaurant has many choices of sandwiches and lobster rolls along with ice cream. Quantities of food are reasonable but the ice cream is overpriced. However, there aren't many food locations with similar offerings.

My husband and I had lunch at the Beach Plum, but we did not enjoy the picnic table dining area or the food. Your place your order at the counter and have a tray delivered. I did not see too many healthy selections on their menu, mostly fried greasy seafood, I probably should have had the lobster roll. The portions... More

We return again and again for the food here. The haddock sandwich is always crispy and tasty, but you have to try the lobster rolls! They are huge no very tasty. Not the best LB around nor the cheapest, but still worth a try. Their ice cream is excellent too! A great place for the whole family!

If you are looking for an old fashioned but up to date roadside experience you'll love this place. The food menu is varied and contains all the "stuff" necessary to break your diet as well as plenty to maintain the waistline if you desire. Fair pricing is always in the menu, We had tried most everything they serve and there... More

This was probably our 12th visit. We love it and look forward to it every season. Went last week and it was disappointing. All I can think is they opened before truly being ready. Ordering took too long, people were waiting 15 minutes for food and there were 4 people in line. They didn't have the stuffed clams, the broccoli... More

This is not the best LR I have ever ate, but it is up there. They are not cheap, but it is worth it. Other food I saw in the dining room looked well prepared also. I will be back.
