“We went twice in a row”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had a great time at the West Street Café. The lobster tails and broiled fish we ordered were excellent, the wait staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed. We tried our very first Maine blueberry pie here and loved it. The local blueberry beer was special, too.

“Good lobster and lobster rolls!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

My family and I enjoyed lunch at the West Street Cafe. My husband ordered a lobster and need a tutorial on how to eat it. The server was so nice to show him. My son and I enjoyed their lobster rolls. Nice atmosphere and good service!

“possibly my favorite meal ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Took a week long road trip through the US, as we do every summer, and the meal that we ate at the West Street Cafe was the highlight of the trip. The staff were great - enthusiastic, helpful, polite. The decor is so warm and relaxing. And the food... dear God... it is the stuff that dreams are made of. So inexpensive and so delicious... had the lobster & clam chowder meal with blueberry pie, and the husband had the lobster & mussels. Couldn't have asked for better.

“Just lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

My husband and I stopped in for the early bird down east special. We were not disappointed. Everything was fantastic. Loved their clam chowder and blueberry pie and of course the lobster was great. The service was quick and everyone was super friendly. This place is nothing to look at, but for a cheap delicious seafood meal I highly recommend it. Sit outside if you can – it’s a great area to people watch.

Seafood was served just right-delicious with every bite. The wait staff were friendly and accommodating. This meal was an experience. Lobster is always an exquisite treat!
