We stopped here to get a snack for our light house cruise. Loved the place. It’s a fast food place which also has a good selection of seafood, including lobster rolls. Prices were good and service was quick.

This is not an ambiance place. Stowe's, down the beach, is a funky/cool shack type place. And Stone Bridge, in Milford, is almost chic. But as these are the only three really good lobster roll places in the area, they have to be compared. At...More

We love the lobster rolls since they are chuck full with warm fresh lobster meat on a toasted roll with butter on the side. We had a platter of fried seafood - clams, scallops, shrimp and fish fillet and everything tastes very fresh with a...More
