Especially enjoyed the fresh seafood and service was great. We weren't sure where to dine but were advised by local lodging that this place was good and it was!

We were travelling south on Rte 1 in Maine and found this shack. It's not a restaurant it in a pier with picnic tablets overlooking the ocean. You go in and order what strikes your fancy, they give you a number and call it when your order is ready. No alcoholic Beverages. This didn't bother us as we were there for seafood. I had lobster stew which was delicious and brimming with lobster. My wife had a seafood sample, shrimp, lobster tail, crab dip. It was a delight with no fanfare. If you are in that area there are multiple choices for seafood and if you want simple and great this is your stop.

Like all good places you buy by the pound. They were super fresh from the sea that day and the prices were the best in Maine. So sweet you didn't end butter. Ok almost didn't need butter... I'm from Wisconsin.

Their crab dip is out of control amazing. When we go here, we usually get a few soft shells packed with seaweed. We take them home and boil them, as we're usually in Maine in the winter when the restaurant is closed. The meat has never been anything short of excellent.

After browsing some of the other reviews, I feel the need to say that if you are looking for a traditional seafood restaurant experience, then this may not be the place for you. But if you are looking for amazing seafood in a laid back atmosphere with friendly staff and a great view...this is the place for you. Their food has never disappointed and their staff is always upbeat and friendly. I love looking at all of the lobsters in the tanks while waiting for my food. Yes, they do charge for things like plates and butter, but that is because they are not a traditional restaurant. They allow you to bring your own drinks and even sides or meals for anyone in your group that may not like seafood...how many places allow you to do that??? It has always been my family's go to place for lobster dinners whenever we are in the area and my latest experience there only proves that it will continue to be for a long time.
