It's an interesting place with fresh lobster, rustic décor, and dining on the deck with a view of tugboat and yacht builders. Our service has always been OK. In prior years I could get oysters but they were off the menu this year. Haddock sandwich was very good and the stuffed haddock dinner was... read more

Enjoyed two very nice dinners. We enjoyed it so much the first night we went back the second night. It great to sit outside by the docks.

Went for the twin lobster special, and that's it, that's all you get is 2 lobsters, everything else is extra. A bit on the pricy side, food was good nothing worth raving about. Ordered a side of mash and a roll, both tasty. But from what I understand is its under new management so I guess they need to find... More

Simply the worst excuse for a restaurant. Went for lobster, but a floater in the tank should have been our clue to leave. Didn't have the wine on the menu, with a poor excuse for a substitute. Stuffed shrimp was horrible. This place needs to close down.

I went to this restuarant looking for only boiled lobsters, I got them, they were what I wanted. I think most of the lobster places in the area have the same quality, what differs is the ambiance, maybe sides (only a roll here, no corn or slaw) and price. I think there are a lot of unhappy reviewers who didn't... More

I was looking forward to trying dinner here, I had heard the food was pretty good. I got the baked stuffed haddock with lobster sauce which sounded so good on their menu......it was NOT. It had a few bones and the haddock was a little dry and it didn't have a good flavor at all. The mashed potatoes were ok... More

Went by boat which is always a treat when you can dock your tender at the restaurant. The overall appearance of the place is tired. Had the lobster roll which was great. All claw and knuckle meat on a grilled bun. The onion rings were terrible. Tough batter. The rolls were not very good. The lobster dinner was over priced... More

I have visited this restaurant many times in the past, and most experiences were positive. On August 16th my wife and I stopped in for lunch at 1 PM. After standing at the "wait here to be seated" podium for nearly ten minutes with no acknowledgement by any of the staff that looked our way as they came and went... More
