Ended up here after a lousy meal next door. Wife had a steamed lobster she liked very much. Was a good size for the money. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. Beautiful view.

This is always our 1st choice when traveling to or through Lubec. It's like coming home - that comfortable. I just with they were open in the winter but they usually close from November to May.

Went here for dinner two nights; had the black bean soup ( yummy ), the cornbread that comes with it is amazing and soft, and the wild mushroom ravoli. Service was great, with a beautiful view of the harbor!

Food was delicious (and plentiful - big portions!). Owners were very nice and stopped by our table to see how everything was. Great views of the water add to the dining experience.

We enjoyed this restaurant very much. It is one of 3 'better' restaurants in 'downtown' Lubec. Excellent service, nice menu and a fun atmosphere. We will most definitely be back and can recommend.
