It looked promising...crowded. Sign said best chicken in town, but I wouldn't agree. Staff was rude. Young girls need to be more polite. I was just asking what was in one of the wraps.

This is a local institution but a $50. lunch for four of burgers and drinks (no sides) is steep even in a touristy area. Their burgers are good, but not that good, atmosphere is a self service drive-in.

This ice cream was fresh and delicious. A wide range of flavors to chose from. Reasonably priced and big scoops! The servers were friendly too.

The best lobster roll ever. They are not cheap but they are worth it for a treat once a year! Their clam strips are amazing too, not greasy! We stop here for these treats for a special occasion. My only issue is the untrained unmotivated staff who work the registers. I give a girl my order and I know it... More

So much so that we couldn't finish them. The chicken tenders were fine, but nothing special. Went outside and decided to get ice cream. They were of... More

Second one was delivered with out eating utensils or a roll and butter. A quick observation 5 scallops and... More
