This place was recommended by someone at one of the wineries we visited. Maybe it was an off night but for the amount of people in the place the service was slow. The waitress did not come around very often and the looks she had rolling her eyes when she talked to another customer as she walked away told us... More

Had the lobster club, which could be a turn off for some lobster roll purists, it's a club with a BLT as the first layer (bacon lettuce, tomato), then tons of lobster meat as the second. I got it on wheat grain bread, which was really good, ended up eating half and taking the other half home for next days... More

I met friends there on a perfect early evening to eat outside where you can see the entire Rockland Harbor. I had a scotch on the rocks and it was a generous pour. I wasn't that hungry. I just got the fried oyster appetizer. It is SO good. I only live a block away and am now thinking of heading... More

We went to Archer's for lunch in mid September. We had Blackened Haddock Rubbin and a grilled chicken sandwich. Service was good and the sandwiches were good. Nice view of the breakwater lighthouse.

Service was very good, surroundings were lovely. I ordered the lobster club and I think it may well be one of the best things I have ever eaten. It is big enough for 2! My husband had a haddock wrap and was very happy. YUM

Had dinner last night at Archers at recommendation of our resort. Atmosphere was nice and that is why I gave a rating of 2. My husband and I ordered a small Caesar salad each which was fine. We decided to try the lobster stew and this is where things went downhill. The bowl arrived with a slick of orange butter... More
