Clearly a popular, local spot judging by the crowds but equally welcoming to out of townahs like us. Stayed at a local bed and breakfast whilst hiking Sebago Lakes. During COVID, it was one of the few places open for dinner. Quickly seated - and...warm, hearty food delivered quickly - exactly what you want after a hike / long day of travel! No 2 hour Portland waits. Ordered the clam chowder which had large chunks of clam and potatoes - super filling. Ordered the scallop w Ritz crackers, veggies and mashed potatoes. Super filling! The boy got the meat lovers pizza. Left ready to sleep well. Would come back/recommend.More

Stopped on for a little dinner and music, yes they had a live band we have missed that so much. The staff was incredible, pleasant and very accommodating.

Arrived 7/29/2020 5:30 Pm, hostess had her mask on but not covering nose, spoke up and told her her nose wasn't covered, she pulled it up but said it wouldn't stay up. Seated outside and waitress approached and same thing mask not up over her...nose. Took our drink order when she came back and didn't even have it up over her mouth. 95% of people entering didn't have a mask on going to or from their table. Waitress said she is normally bartender but helping out with waitressing tonight. Very poor bar tender, and even worse at waiting tables, messed up the tab not just once but twice. To bad service so poor as the food was very good. When asked to see a manager on leaving was told that there wasn't one on duty tonight. Have been here many times over the years. Poor Covid-19 procedures.More

Excellent food with very reasonable prices. Our party of five each had something different and there was not a complaint! We started with fries pickles and cheese sticks. The dip for the pickles was delicious. Both great! For the main course we had a pastrami...sandwich, a pastrami Reuben, a Reuben pizza, chicken fingers dinner and pasta with meat sauce. All were stuffed. Would go back when in the area.More

I was very disappointed when we went to lunch. Its always so interesting when you're the only table in the place and the service is slow. Put that friggin' phone away and wait on your customers. Food was barely warm, nothing like the picot featured.

We went twice this weekend. First time was a Saturday night. We had to wait for a table but there was space in the bar. Food was great and service was wonderful. In spite of the crowd everyone was moving and smiling. We returned with...a smaller group on Sunday for a quick dinner. We waited for someone to seat us about 10 min. Then waited for server to take our order...another 10 minutes. They were out of many menu options. Drinks came in another 10 minutes. Then we waited, and waited, and waited. After over an hour we found our waitress and left. We ordered 3 salads and a burger. Not sure what the problem was. The place was not full. We’ve been here on past visits and both food and service were great. Not sure what was going on.More

Nothing much has changed here. Food is pretty consistent. Had chicken wings and a small garden salad.The absence of lobster in my lobster stew was disappointing and varied tremendously over the two consecutive days I had it. They need to work on quality control. Waitress...was polite, friendly and professional. Personally I don't like the ambiance. Glaring and irritating LED lights overheat, poor acoustics, enormous TV on with no one watching, banging music, made for an unpleasant dining experience. Not a place to have a quiet and restful meal, and there is certainly nothing charming or romantic about the interior. - If you want to have a conversation, go so place else.More

This is a convenient to where we stay at Sebago so we figured since it changed owners we’d give it a try. Service was great. We sat outside. Not fancy but nice. Food was great. My husbands fisherman platter was huge. Lobster rolls were fresh...with lots of lobster and not a lot of other. So happy this location is back to being an option. The old place was off our list.More

While camping with friends we had dinner Sat. night, we sat outside, which turned out to be a mistake. The waitress was very nice but the service was very slow. After we got our food the waitress disappeared.The selection on beers was good, and food...was O.K., but nothing special. The live band was so loud we could not talk. We were amused but not returning.More
