Initially, we stopped at the Chart Room to take advantage of their $16.95 Early Bird Special featuring lobster. We ended up eating there three times during our week's stay. Every meal was delicious. We had salmon, lobster, steak, and lobster stew. Everything was tender and well prepared. The staff was friendly and prompt. The views were wonderful, both upstairs and... More

We went to the Chart Room because it was within walking distance from where we were staying. But their lobster and Atlantic Salmon were so good and the prices so reasonable that we went back 2 more times while we were in town!

My husband and I chose the opportunity to eat here two nights in a row. A third night is planned. The service was friendly the first night, but the second night, the server was a little icy. The food is delicious. The first night I ordered only from the appetizer menu, enjoying the smoked salmon that they smoke on the... More

We pulled in because of the "lobster special 16.95" sign outside, but once inside the wait staff was discouraging everybody from ordering it. "It is soft-shelled lobster, not much meat, a lot of water.." We asked if we got it if we could get a baked potato, " no, only potato wedges". I ordered the more expensive dish (26.95) that... More

Very nice waterfront location. A well designed restaurant. I ordered the whole boiled Maine lobster. The waitress checked the time and told me that the 'Early Bird Special' was still in effect if I had the different sides. Since I only cared about the lobster, it was a no brainer that saved me $5.00. The wife had a variety of... More

This restaurant can be extremely crowded, so go after 8 if you don't want a long wait. There is an early bird lobster special that draws people after 4, so early can be busy too. The lobster was excellent, the sides were good. Service was timely, though were we in the later, not so busy crowd.

This restaurant was near our hotel and as we drove by, we'd see a line-up of people for the early bird dinners. They always say that a crowded parking lot and referrals from the locals indicate good food and "they" were right. Even though it looked crowed, the restaurant is spacious and we got a great seat near the water... More

Loves this restaurant! Had a window seat right over the water, macadamia crusted halibut - yes. Attentive waitstaff, food was melt in your mouth good, rolls were warm and fluffy, just a great Maine restaurant. Small but cozy- warm feeling! Draw back- soda was dollar refills, maybe it said on the menu, I didn't look obviously at a menu when... More

You can eat inside or out on the deck overlooking the cove. The food was delicious I had yellowfin tuna. If you go at an early bird time they have lobster specials at a great price
