Stop if you're in the area

This place is pretty remote, just across the water from Canada and down the road from the border crossing to Campobello Island. There is a rear deck with a great lighthouse and island view, and when it is cold, they supply blankets to keep you warm while you eat their good food. Stop if you're in... read more

This place was a recommendation from a local - which I often try to get when we land in a town we haven't visited previously. The food was pretty good, but for the price (80$ for two adults and two kids - in styrofoam containers) I expected something a little better than average.

Thank you for the great hospitality. We made reservations for four but my son wasn't feeling well so it was just 3 of us. We ordered milk to go for my son and we weren't charged for it. They have amazing I mean amazing food here. The food here won't disappoint you.

It was a very foggy day! We're surprised to have found this cute little waterfront restaurant overlooking the "spark plug" Canadian lighthouse and Isle (which came in and out of view due to fog). Great food selection and very sweet attention to my son in regard to his seafood allergy. We all enjoyed our meals and found it to be... More

We came here for lunch and had their fried clam and haddock special. The place does take out and has a restaurant with a back deck overlooking the harbor, right in the middle of the main strip at Lubec. Although it was a special, everything was made to order. The fries were among the best I've had at a fried... More

We had a nice dinner here and enjoyed our meal. Nice waitress and everything was fine. But i recommend that the kitchen staff changes their aprons from time to time.

The food is very fresh and the portions are good and all the food was made to order. I would recommend this place as the place to eat in Lubec.

Fried shrimp. ravioli, chowder, lemonade and French fries. Nothing special, but the lemonade was watery, the fries mushy and the ravioli and chowder pasty. Sorry, even though the shrimp was fresh and the view spectacular we won't be back for supper.

Entering the restaurant we were greeted by the waitress who went to set up a table by the windows with lovely views. After a short conversation with the cooks she wanted to sit us in the corner next to a wall. What happened; "sorry that station is closed". How about you close the table by the wall and open the...
