This is a great spot to eat a whole lobster. If you've been eating lobster rolls and are looking to try a whole one, this is the place. Great food and friendly service.

The seafood chowder was delicious definitely a 5 star. The only reason I gave it a 4 was because the lobster roll was made with celery and mayonnaise not what we are used too. Picnic tables right outside and we watched the tide. Great local...More

We’ve been coming here for over twenty years and every time is great. The lobster is fantastic, service is great, the kids can see the lobster tank upon request, and the tables outside are pretty much on the Bay. We’ve never had any of their...More

Location: Literally, right by the ocean. You can't ask for better than that. The place: It's a combination of shop and restaurant except you can't eat indoors. The back is stacked with boxes that presumably contain lobster(s) and other sea food - totally surprised me...More

We tasted both the lobster roll and the lobster dinner, both amazing. For sure the best lobster we tasted in our trip to New Brunswick.

I visited this place in September 2019. I had the hungry fisherman dinner and the scallop with maple bacon at this restaurant. The quality of the seafood was very poor... the lobster was mostly water, not meaty at all. The clams were full of sand...More

We are happy to hear your concerns for our menu. Our scallops are served 3 ways, Cajun, butter, salt& pepper, and maple syrup with bacon bits, so people can have the option, because not everyone wants sweet maple syrup with their seafood. It seems as...More

Two of us got lobster rolls and while they tasted fresh one of us got sick. The best deal looked like the seafood feast with lobster, shrimp, muscles, clams and fish. Amounts would serve 8 to 10 people and cost was about $60. We did...More

We are happy you visited us. Our lobster rolls are typically priced but no one else offers 1/4 pound of lobster meat. We feel 1/4 pound is a good amount of meat and still be offered at an affordable price. Our lobster meat is prepared...More
