We went for dinner and they have a reasonably priced menu with specials for kids. Service was attentive, BBQ was good, good music. Tip: Sit outside near the "cooking area" and watch the guys cook. It added "a show" to our meal.

Omg dirty dirty dirty!!! Honestly I can not believe the board of heath has not been called!! Many tables were never cleared so the flies were everywhere. The cooking is done outside and you can clearly see the unrefrigerated foods. I don't know why we stayed after seeing the conditions.

We were up in Franklin to add a deck to a cottage and the wifes found the lobster pound and were given a menu to take home to review. After working on the deck for a day and reviewing the menu we decided to go and try the place out. We ended up ordering the Rodeo that consisted of a... More

As Texans we are particular about our BBQ, as most are. Brisket needed more flavor but the sausage & ribs were great! Baked beans are fabulous & I'm super picky about those! Portions are large, sevice was good.

I had the fried haddock sandwich which was delicious! It was very lightly breaded and fried perfectly. The roll was fresh and the tartar sauce delicious. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich and French fries. Both were great. Would definitely go back.

Classic lobster pound with friendly, patient staff; reasonable pieces and delicious food. The lobster mac-n-cheese, clam chowder, lobster roll, and BBQ chicken was delicious. Don't forget the blueberry pie, bursting with blueberries!

The waiter, Connor, was fun and attentive. The atmosphere was inviting and custom to the location. We can't say enough about the food. From the sweet corn to the ribs and pulled pork....super tasty and moist. The open kitchen staff is always super busy and we applaud and thank them. We are only here 3 nights and will go back...

Discovered this place last year and had the best lobster ever then. Just very casual : the perfectly cooked animal with two sides (the red potato salad actually is very good, the corn just so so). But wow, the lobster they serve is amazing. You find meat in the tail fins ! Perfect 'cuisson' as the French say. So I... More

They serve a Lazy Mans Lobster dinner here that is 2 lobster tails out of the shell. they use the rest of the lobster meat from the claws for the lobster roll. It was huge! Big perfectly cooked pieces of lobster meat, lightly coated in mayo, overflowing from the toasted bun. Well worth the price. The smoked sausage was also... More
