My boyfriend and I shared the classic sized lobster roll and a bowl of the seafood chowder. The lobster roll was piled high and the crowder was delicious. All of the food was great! Only complaint was that I couldn't find a light in the...More

The most expensive of four places we enjoyed lobster rolls but very fresh and tasty and generally a good portion. Fried clams were exceptional with a very light batter that did not overpower the meat. Not much ambiance; crowded inside with 3-4 tables and outdoors...More

OK, it is small and it's a wee bit hard to find (though plenty of parking behind the eatery), but if you crave freshly prepared local seafood and don't mind eating in a tiny little hole in the wall--by all means go for it. First,...More
