“Great brisket”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Pet friendly outdoor dinning. We ha the brisket and it was very good. The baby back ribs that they served to another table was a huge portion. Must have them on the next trip.

“Clam chowder that goes directly to your heart!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

The clam chowder is soooooooo gooooood! Very very creamy and buttery, goes right to your arteries! At first I thought the pulled pork was too smoky but as I ate it , I really enjoyed it. The sauce for the pulled pork was also very good. The cold slaw had a good kick and the potato salad was good. This place is a true joint and I think it's great!

“Excellent place for lunch or dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We had lunch and dinner on a recent trip to Maine at this restaurant. The food is very good and service is extremely friendly and prompt. They offer your typical Lobster /fish dinners like most places in the area but also offer barbeque food such as ribs. The portions of ribs are huge. As a matter of fact I split a rib dinner with my daughter and there was plenty to spare. This location has indoor and outdoor seating. Another nice thing is they allow pets to keep you company while you eat. We had our German Shepherd join us for lunch. They even gave him a bone and a dish of water.

“Great lobster and Texas style BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We live in the south so we know our BBQ and have pretty high expectations. We enjoyed this place so much that we went here twice. The first time I had a lobster roll which was some of the better lobster I experience on our trip. And the corn was cooked perfectly. Next time I had the brisket and pulled pork. The pork has a strong smoky flavor and the brisket was very tasty. My husband had ribs and they fell of the bone. Overall enjoyed this place. It is a bit high on price but it seemed most restaurants in that area were!
