I went to dinner with a group of friends. We chose the lobster trap. We hadn’t been in years and figured we’d give it a chance. Well the food was ok at best. I couldn’t believe the size difference in the muscles compared to another...More

When you get tired of all those restaurants which seem to offer exactly the same menus apparently all based on variations of ground beef, it is a heart-warming pleasure to dine in a restaurant where they know good seafood and how to present it. We...More

We went for fish and was really disapointed. The had either been frozen or been there too long. They tried to cover the flavor with lemon. I would go for drinks but they need to improve the food.

I get my fish fresh 4 days a week from Kennebunk Maine . I’m sorry you didn’t like the fresh haddock. I don’t use frozen or refreshed haddock. All the clams , scallops, haddock and salmon are all fresh along with the lobsters and oysters.

Stopped by and had lunch with my wife the other day and was pretty impressed. I got a clam roll which was filled with quite a few clams. My wife had a soup, both were great. Highly recommend this place.
