Sitting on the pier, eating lobster or fried seafood here is the perfect Maine experience! Friendly, cheerful staff and fresh seafood. Make this the place to go!

We went on their opening night for the season. I was so happy to see one of my favorite wines on the menu. The lobster was superb, the onion rings were light and very good, not greasy at all. This is a no-frills place but we thoroughly enjoyed it. Unfortunately the bathrooms weren't working, I think they had a freeze up over the winter, so we used the next door bathroom. Other than that it was a great experience. Definitely will be back!

My Husband and I have gone here on several occasions. It remains consistant and yummy. For our anniversary we had made reservations at some upscale place, but instead we opted for our low key good eats. Thank You staff and keep up the good work.
