There is nothing like a lobster roll from a shack, and this local landmark does not disappoint. The food is only outdone by the spectacular views from the tables. The lobster rolls and haddock were fabulous. Our only disappointment was that they were temporarily out...More

Paid over $100 for 3 of us to have lobster dinners and one tiny hamburger. Paid for the view I guess. Lobster was hard to tear apart and I had to ask for shell crackers. Messy. Our hands stunk for a day. Interesting experience. Now...More

A group of us went there for dinner, two of us longing for lobster. One had a lobster roll and the other a salad with lobster on top. The serving of lobster was the puniest I have ever seen. The person with the lobster roll...More

Yes, I agree with the above answers. We arrived before noon and easily parked. It was a misty day. Parking is limited so it fills up early. It is free and if you wait, I think that it is worth it.
