“Terrific food, great setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

This place is known for their marinated steak, which really is quite good. We went there on a Thursday night, which happened to be Prime Ribs night, and the ribs were simply fabulous. The seafood is fresh and well-prepared. They do not have much of a selection of lobsters, however, only one-pounders (you can get two of them).

One of the secrets of this place is that it is a very short walk from the restaurant to Kenny's Beach where you can see the sun set over a water horizon, as a result of the way the land is angled. Don't miss it, if the sky is clear!

“Casual ... fresh seafood ... friendly and attentive waitstaff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We visited Elbow East today looking for some quick fresh seafood for lunch.... we had heard of Elbow East but never visited before. We were pleasantly surprised! We had an excellent and inexpensive bloody mary followed by fried shrimp with delicious home made steak fries and a soft-shelled crab sandwich on a sesame bun ... also with those fabulous steak fries. The tab came to less than forty dollars and everything was delicious, hot and presented as ordered. We would go back and recommend this place which is off the beaten path...to anyone looking for a casual place to dine on good food at very reasonable prices. Many menu items were enticing but we chose from the Saturday afternoon specials. There are a number of appetizers and some other fast treats that the kids might enjoy.

They do an excellent job. Many other dishes available. I had the cold lobster & crab salad special, which was very good.

“Great steak”

Had the marinated shell steak as I always do. As always it was great. If you want a great steak, this is the place.
