“Umm, yeah...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by the lady who checked us in at a hotel near Bradley Airport. Best restaurant suggestion EVER! I can't imagine a better lobster place on the Maine coast than this place. We ate there both nights we were in town. The second night we were working late, so we got phoned for take out (plus they closed an hour earlier on Sunday p.m.) The interior is a bit dated, but with seafood like this, who cares? It was still a cut above most hole in the wall joints that serve comparably priced, fresh delicacies from the ocean, so the décor was of little concern to us. What WAS of concern was the Lazy Man's Lobster Dinner. 8 ounces of succulent lobster meat without the time and energy of extracting it from it's confines. All sides were good and plentiful but, hey, it's all about the lobster here. Full bar and interesting dessert choices, but if you're not gorging yourself on the reasonably priced crustaceans here, then you're missing out. A lobster lover's paradise.

“The Best Food, Service and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

First time going to MFM&R and we absolutely loved it. Our Hostess that seated was gracious. Then our server, Christine was amazing. She was attentive, kind, sharp, timely, etc. and as I walked around the place so were the other waiters and waitresses. They were just all in sync and pleasant to everyone whether they were serving them or not. The seafood was totally fresh. We had the following: Cajan Gumbo Seafood Soup, Salad, Steamed Clams, Fried Scallops and Shrimp Platter and a Broiled 1-1/2 lb Lobster that was succulent and the best I've very had and we are world travelers. Then we had their cheesecake which is from the Cheesecake Factory but I must tell you! You will be well pleased. Now it does not have a 5 Star look but it is a very clean, spacious, dinner type look but a real genuine seafood restaurant with a full bar if that's what you like! Finally the Prices are Amazing for the large portions that they give you!

“Best place to eat near Bradley Airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

The food quality and taste are quite good and the portions are extremely generous. If you're not a big eater, you might well share an entree and get an appetizer. The gumbo is a flavorful option. The place is bigger than it first appears and the room in the back has brighter lighting than the front and has an aquarium to keep you occupied while you wait for your plates, but on every occasion, the food was served within ten minutes of ordering. If you are not a New Englander, try the scrod (young cod), as it is difficult to find elsewhere.

“Been there twice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

I've been there twice. I really like the calamari. The salads are great too. The last time, I got the clam chowder. VERY thick and creamy. Sticks to your ribs! The desserts were expensive and obviously not made on site. Wish they had something of their own to offer.
