While this is nearby, we do not go often. We do go for their fresh haddock and lobster rolls. They have so many options and recently began serving a brunch on weekends.

We were late for lunch and early for dinner so everyone went for a soup and salad bar. First, the soups were above average and hot and tasty. These included clam chowder, haddock chowder, seafood chowder and onion soup. The salad bar, which comes with a hot soup and rolls kept in a warming draw, is a nice idea but... More

We have visited Ocean Gardens many times over the last few years. I stopped going there a couple of years ago because of pretty terrible food. No matter what I ordered it was always cold. It was sold a while back but I still did not want to give it a try. My wife & daughter did so that went... More

One of the staff at our hotel told us about this restaurant. He said you can get 3 lobsters for $25. We figured, why not check it out. It's not a fancy place by far, but I didn't go to Maine for fancy, I went for LOBSTER, and had 3 of them and they were wonderful! Service was very friendly.... More

Every time that we wanted seafood, we were always pleased with the price and seafood. The food is always prepared as we ask and delicious. The waitstaff is always pleasant.

Really don't like to write reviews like this, but didn't have a good experience. A few months ago we were seated on the lounge side. We waited for about 15 minutes and were about to leave when I tracked down a waitress. She was very apologetic, and things went pretty well from there. Food was good, service was ok. Tonight...

I scoff at the tourists, knowing what I know, as they willingly gobble up the Old Port lobster pricing feeling like they got a bargain over prices they would pay at home for delicious Maine lobster. Hey everyone! I have a secret and it is big, red, delicious, and cheap! Come take part in the double and triple lobster specials... More
