If you are looking for fresh lobster, come here. It is an excellent place to pick up a few lobsters and bring them back to prepare.

Locals told us about this place, and we couldn't believe how good the lobster was! We steamed then in a large pot on a bed of seaweed along with some local mussels. No butter was needed!!! Spoiled forever! Can't wait for next year!
