“Bad experience”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

I have gone here for years but a group of friends and I went the other night and much of it was inedible. My friends got the stuffed mushrooms and said they were terrible. The buffalo bites were gross and didn't seem like chicken. The soap of the night seemed straight out if the can. The service was excellent but the food was very disappointing.

“Inconsistent”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Sometimes the food is great and sometimes it is ok. The hamburger was great the lobster so so in the winter. The portions are very big and it has a real Maine ambiance. We go often.

“Terrible”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Ordered the surf and turf. Asked for med-rare steak and not to over cook the lobster. Received well-done meat and could not even crack the lobster shell. Friends with us expressed displeasure with their order also. Last time for me...Additionally, service was very slow and there were very few people eating!

“Great food, great service, will return”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stopped here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Server was courteous. Had fried scallops that were very good and very fresh. Also got a turkey BLT that was good. Would certainly return to this restaurant because of the good service, good food, good prices, and nice atmosphere.
