Lobster rolls and drinks are the best . Found the lobster bisque to be too thick - probably too much flour in it . Lots of other fun items on the menu, many with lobster but also burgers etc.

Went here 2 years ago for dinner and it was excellent. Went back this year and was surprised to see the restaurant more than half empty. Got our food and it was average. Not bad, not great. Something has changed in the past two years.

Service was just ok, food was fresh but way overpriced. Tried to sit our family group in the bar that smelled like, well you can imagine.

After a long day climbing ladders and zip lining, this was the perfect place for dinner. It had a local vibe, the Margaritas and Mojitos totally hit the spot, the Lobster Newberg, lobster tails, and lobster salad were totally delicious.The service friendly and fun. What more is there to say?

Another great meal at the beach. It is an attractive restaurant very family friendly. I loved my Creamsicle cocktail.

Called at 7pm with a take out order for 11 people. Guess what? Apparently they don't do take out after 6:30 pm which is not mentioned anywhere on their mobile website!?! Never heard of that in this type of market. Disappointing. The Ugly Grouper happily took our $220 and we will return there often both sit down and take out.

It's a relaxed place with a bar (and TV) and good but not amazing service. The seafood is excellent and the burgers good too. And the Bloody Mary was ace!

We made reservations for eleven (three families) on Monday, April 10. We were seated in the bar, even though there were open tables in the restaurant proper. The odor in the bar area was terrible - a mixture of urine,garbage, and popcorn - so bad that we requested a move to the outdoor dining area. When we requested the move... More

Very friendly efficient service (our server Linda was great!), great drinks (we had a superb mojito and a coconut rum drink called a painkiller) and excellent food. We ordered a filet mignon which was tender, beefy and completely delicious, a whole lobster which was as good as I've ever had in Maine, a very rich and lobster-y lobster mac and... More
