“A hidden seafood goal mine”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Stopped here for dinner based on a high recomnendation from a co-worker . If you are looking for great seafood at. Reasonable price this is your place . The clam chowder is really good and the fried oysters and fish are very good and the lobster role was also good .

This certainly not fancy with picnic table seating and the place is small and lines can get very long . But the service is very quick .

I will certainly be back again in the future . And recommend this to anyone .

“Boston West”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Next best thing to being back East. A bit pricey, but not much more than Belle Isle in Boston. Great fried clams, but lobster roll didn't quite measure up.

“Great food”
Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

I've dined here a few times. Lobster in general is expensive and this place is no exception. Luckily, it turns out I'm allergic to lobster so I come here for the clam chowder and fish & chips. The clam chowder is great. It doesn't have a lot potato. You can actually see the clam. We introduced my friends here & they love it to.
My husband prefers the lobster melt instead of the lobster roll.

Advice try to go early otherwise the line can be long.

Reviewed August 19, 2012

We go there for their fish and chips which is very white haddock and outstanding. Good selection of unusual sodas and beers.

“Maine Lobsster Feast”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

The lobster is WONDERFUL! Don't miss the lobster rolls. Tasts great.

Expensive, but considering the lobster is flown in fresh every day....
