The lobster rolls were incredible!!! The place is very small so you might miss it- but it is worth hunting for.

This really was the best lobster bisque. As soon as you walk it smells amazing. I wish I had time to stop again another day on our visit. Staff was very friendly. Great place!

I've not tried a great deal of lobster in my time but I cannot imagine that there would be a lot of places who serve up anything better than this. The Key Lime Lobster Roll is simply amazing and would be my recommendation for anyone....More

We had incredible lunch! The lobster rolls were delicious! Full, over flowing lobster on a role. I have been to Maine the home of lobster. But never had lobster rolls. The great thing about their lobster rolls is they use butter not Mayo(yuk). There’s plenty...More

Very cute, SMALL place! Good lobster rolls, no bathroom ( bummer )! Not much atmosphere but good food! Typical KW prices ( overpriced)!

I ordered the Lobster Roll for lunch. This sandwich consists of the plump, juicy, hand-picked meat from the claw. VERY TENDER and DELICIOUS. Also enjoyed the Hibiscus tea. Charming little restaurant with friendly staff.

I don’t think they deliver. It’s a walk-up stand. Easy to grab an order to go and walk it back to your hotel though.
