A little chilly but we are outside. The view made up for any slight discomfort. We had the lobster bisque for an appetizer. Wonderful - large chunks of lobster and a very tasty cream soup. I wanted to overdose on lobster so I had the lobster roll. Very fairly priced and very good. Others had burgers, lobster mac & cheese,... More

For the price it should have been so much better. I got the perch and walleye. For $27 it should have been spectacular. Needless to say it was not. On a good note the scenery was nice looking out into lake Erie.

They are famous for it but we've had better. Lots of cream and lobster chunks. Great location right on the water. Service was also very good.

The lobster bisque was out of this world! Went back several times for the bisque! Service and atmosphere was great. A little more on the pricey side.

Lobster is always good. The lobster bisque is good but it is unnecessarily salty every time! You will pick your own seat at one of many tables on the boardwalk. The view is amazing there!
