My wife and I, along with 2 teenage grandkids and a family friend decided to come here for dinner, we are staying at a nearby campground for a few days. I found the service to be good as was the taste of the food. Although the cost of dinner was not as high as I expected it was still expensive.... More

This was supposed to be the highlight dinner of my vacation. First mistake, ordered iced tea and when it arrived, found out they now only offer sugar or Truvia. Waitress changed my drink to diet Coke. Second blunder, New England clam chowder had lumps of undissolved flour in it. Next up, BBQ clams were tough and overcooked. Also sparse on... More

We ate here while staying at a local hotel. The wait was not long and we felt that the food was just average. Nothing outstanding but the food was hot and served fast. We would return.

We enjoyed our dinner with two small children. There are no reservations so go early to avoid a longer wait. My kids loved the view, as we watched boats sail by while we ate. The server was excellent.

This place offers you a market and a ready to go and prepared meals sections. Once you walked into the restaurant you will see a door on the left that takes you to the ready to go meals and market. I did not have the chance to try the food but judging the line and the wait (45 min) you... More

This popular restaurant puts out mega numbers of orders each day. You can sit inside, or grab (literally grab, you must hover near a group about to leave) a table on the dock, or wait for a spot on the docked boat. I had a crab cake that was reminiscent of the Mrs. Paul's meals of childhood. The shrimp salad... More

The Lobster House has the perfect recipe for success. From inside formal dining, to on-the-go fish market, to even drinks on a Schooner - this place does not disappoint. My husband and I went not one... but two nights in a row! The outdoor Schooner Bar had amazing beach vibes and live bands! The orange crushes did not disappoint, either.... More

Food was great. Lobster was the best. Very crowded, must be patient in waiting to get a table even at 5:30 at night.
