Description: Thank you to everyone that enjoyed our restaurant. A combination of the economy and needing to redirect our energies to other parts of our businesses and spend time with our young children led to the decision to close. We are thankful for all the support within our community.

Perhaps it is an unfair comparison, but we were big fans of Bayview Lobster, and we were disappointed on this visit to find a new restaurant.

We (group of 4) felt that the food (particularly the lobster rolls) were adequate, but not particularly tasty, and that the menu was much more abbreviated than our prior experience. Additionally, the atmosphere felt sterile - almost like a chain restaurant.

We didn't actively dislike

Food was only so-so. No wine selection. There are many other restaurants in this town that are very good. This one seemed to drop the ball on service and food quality. The menu is limited. Wish we had chosen another while on vacation. Very disappointed!

This was the best lobster roll I have ever had and at only $8.99. They toasted and buttered the bun and it was overflowing with lobster.

Thank you for your review. I did make an attempt to contact you for further information regarding party size and the food served, but have not heard back from you to address your concerns.

This is our first season running a restaurant in this location and it was incredibly busy. Please excuse the bumps as we learn the flow of customers, food, and each other.

We did NOT take reservations in the summer, so I am a bit confused as to your comment regarding that. As busy as we were, there is often a short wait for a table, particularly if a party wanted to be seated on the deck. This is not unusual for any of the restaurants located directly on the harbor.

Again, my apologies for not meeting your expectations.
