Tried the seafood chowder which was very tasty. Had a lobster roll, steamed mussels and a beer. A little windy outside today but the view was worth it. Although it was busy, we were served quickly.

Reluctantly writing as there are only 5 tables with an amazing view so hope this place doesn’t get overwhelmed with people! Thanks to our Lithuanian waitress with the blond hair (Anachia???) very sweet and competent. Hubby had great salty raw oysters and the scallops with...More

We had the lobster roll (hot) and the lobster melt. Both were excellent. Staff was very nice explaining the ordering before seating. Sitting outside overlooking the cove was lovely even as the tide was going out.

I don't think so, it's a small place. They are the sister to lobster shack which is bigger. Lobster shack doesn't have hot lobster rolls or the view. Not sure about reservations there either
