Good seafood spot for a quick stop

When we stopped in the place was almost empty. Our server was very helpful. The clam chowder was very good. The atmosphere was pretty dreary. The rest of the meal was average at best. We enjoyed it, but wouldn't have gone out of our way to stop here.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal - she had the lobster dinner and I had the seafood platter which was loaded with shrimp, scallops, mussels, one-half lobster and halibut. The price for our evening was very reasonable. The service was excellent. We were fortunate to be able to be there, as the restaurant was closing for the season... More

The service was good but the food was mediocre. We ordered fish chowder which had little or no seafood in it and had hardly any flavor.

We were in the area recently during the beginning of the off season, the people we chatted with in town recommended this place to us. We had lunch, I had crab cakes and my partner had scallops. Crab cakes were good, nothing special, and the scallops were very greasy. It cost me 66 dollars for lunch. WAY too expensive for... More

Really nice place, but advertised as all you can eat, but not the seafood. Loads of other things were all you could eat, but.... What we had was great, but i wanted more seafood.

This place makes tasty lobster. It's a giant dining hall for seafood lovers that has much more than seafood. The super-long salad bar has all you can eat sides, mussels, chowder and dessert.

The lobster was allright but there weren't any vegetables with it (would have been nice to have something with it, was just the lobster and butter in a plastic box which broke when the butter had gotten through). My sister got the steak and baked potato and there wasn't anyway to get sauce with it and the baked potato was... More

Lobster supper, as the name implies, is only possible from 4pm to 8pm. But there is a small Restaurant included where you can eat all day. Food is very good, not so cheap as usual in touristic places. But the waitress was very nice and friendly.

We stopped here for lunch on a Trafalgar Bus tour. Poorly managed, and poor customer service. We were the only guests. Do not order off the menu. Eventually you get served. Do the salad bar, and get your own coffee. They were under staffed, and clearly not ready to serve us. I asked the manager for help, and basically he... More
