I love the location, the waterfront is a huge tourist attraction, the place has great potential maybe just needs a menu update and so renovations!

“Great place”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Had a great lunch here with family who we were visiting last September. The service was friendly and efficient, the food was delicious . We mainly had the salads which were very tasty and innovative. The location is wonderful you feel as if you are actually on the water we would certainly eat there again.

“Great place for Seafood, great views and a quiet meal!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Took my daughter and her friend for dinner here. I had the seafood casserole which was awesome. The girls both had salads which were large and very fresh looking. Would definitely go here again. Located on the wharf so great views.

“LOBSTER AND VIEWS”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

A small group of us visited this restaurant while on a cruise. We visited based on the published trip advisor reviews coupled with the convenient location.

The restaurant was not crowded during our visit (only 1 ship in port) and it was close to the end of the season. Service was very prompt and friendly. Our group mostly ordered lobster rolls and they were excellent with a nice presentation.

There are two main areas - the inside restaurant and an enclosed outside "patio" area. We chose to sit inside (it was cold), but the waterfront views were still very nice.

I would recommend this as a good restaurant within reasonable walking distance from the cruise port.

“Great lobster wrap with a view”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

I visited this restaurant while on an excursion through Princess Cruise line. We had a large group visit at lunch time with our choices pre-selected and phoned in before arrival. We were seated and served our food within minutes after arrival. The service was good. The lobster wrap was delicious and followed by warm apple cobbler for dessert. This restaurant is on the wharf and is a great area to walk around in or to just sit back and relax.
