Hate too say this because this is local too us but I did not enjoy the calamari at all. Tastes like it came right out of the freezer into the deep fryer. No flavor and very little seasoning. Clam chowder was the best. $72 for...More

South Berwick is off the beaten path... Not on the major commuter or tourist routes, but definitely worth going out of your way to find! The center of town is a quaint little village graced by the Sarah Orne Jewett House (for those of you...More
