Good lobster rolls, great lobster club sandwich. Side salad very good. Nice outdoor deck. Large beer selection. The inside has character, but have only eaten outside this year. Would recommend it for lunch. Servers have always been nice.

Stopped by for lunch and enjoyed an appetizer on the deck. Had to leave early due to child care issue but the waitress was very understanding and packed our seafood combos to go.
