“It seems to be busy but the food could certainly improve.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Here you get a local New England (small)seafood restaurant atmosphere-its a local hangout. Truthfully, I have tasted nothing great here. Chowder is average! sandwiches are average and prices tend to be slightly above average-lobster roll very pricey! People come here for the experience.

“Best thing is the great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

This small place sits right on the water and sitting outside gives you a great view. We found the food to be OK, but somewhat over priced for what you get. Their regular sized lobster roll was good, but a 4 inch roll filled with lobster was $14. We also shared a bowl of clam chowder which was about $6--OK, but not the thick, creamy chowder I am used to. We were visiting and a local friend told us there were other places to get better less expensive lobster rolls.

Geno's is a small, intimate eatery with wonderful food and service. It also happens to be Republican HQs for NH (unofficially).

“Great atmosphere, good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

I've eaten here a few times and I've always left satisfied. I love the family heritage of the location and the view is great. The lobster rolls could be better...decent lobster, but just regular buns. I like the chowder though. It's thinner than most other chowder I've had, but it has a lot of flavor.

Prices are on par with other places around (cup of chowder $3.75, lobster roll starting around $11).

The service has always been outstanding.
