Overflowing lobster roll- fresh lightly dressed and seasoned chunked meat. Owners treat customers as family. The staff works well together and are pleasant to each other as well to the customers.

Sandwiches are very good. They take good care of their seasonal help--watched as one person was leaving for the season and they obviously care about their people. Pea soup was very good. Some yummy looking food went past our table.

Stopped in for a pizza and some ice cream and ate outside at the picnic tables at the side and people-watched. This is a lunchy, quick, casual outside place to go to for a rest while touring around.

We stopped in for some ice cream. Many ice cream options, both hard and soft serve. There are also several other treats, such as scones and large cookies.
