I don't like change but do really like organic food, supporting local farms and grass fed cage free meat so was glad to see these changes at a place that our family has patronized for close to 40 years. But I had to pick through...More

All the food we had was very good. However, $6.99 for a very small sized portion of sweet potato fries and $3.95 for a tiny scoop of icecream is simply a rip-off. The price for the lobster also was on the higher end. Service was...More

If you are looking for a fancy place, this is not it. But if you are looking for a local place with excellent food, this is your spot. We had clam rolls, and they were simply outstanding. The service was very friendly and attentive.

We had the best lobster roll ever here, just lobster, no salad, toasted bun. Been all over and had many before, but this was the best ever, what more to say, stop by and try one, just up the road from the visitor centre.

Docksider has been there for years and is a good simple restaurant. Good food and close to town and harbor. So you can come by boat. Nothing fancy about Docksider, good food and friendly people

We went there because the place looked cute. We had the typical lobster roll (2) with grease awful sweet potato fries, an extra corn and two drinks. We paid 60.00 US when usually you pay $14.00 for a lobster roll with a side. No going...More
