We had lunch here on Labor Day weekend. I had a perfect steamed lobster with fresh corn on the cob and cabbage salad. Others had fried fish and scallops and said it was delicious. The service was fast and friendly.

Average Old Orchard scene, many Bar Flies, and so-so food. If you want to dine in better surroundings, head out of Old Orchard Beach.

Quite simply the best scallops I have ever had and the Haddock was excellent as well. The French Fries were top notch, too. Very crispy on the outside, but tender on the inside. Service was very good, atmosphere was better than expected. I would definitely...More
