We loved this place!!
Picnic tables with umbrellas are set up on the pier.
A menu is posted on the outside wall near the entrance ( the wine and beer menu is inside near the checkout). After going in to place your order you will be given a # to place on your table.
While awaiting your food you enjoy the view as well as picking up your napkins and utensils. There is free water inside. Soda refills appeared to be free.
We enjoyed our lunch of delicious steamers and a friend oyster dinner and a clam roll. The thin, hand made onion rings were fantastic and well worth the price.
All the employees seemed to be very friendly and helpful.
The restaurant being dog friendly was a plus.
We and our chocolate lab would definitely return.

The gentleman busing tables took exception to the fact that we had waters with us on a hot day. Having not seen the sign that says not waters we brought them in. Despite the fact we were drinking the cocktails in front of us he barked at us for having them. After we left he stared us down. When we approached him to communicate he refused but instead gave us the bird and masturbation gestures. We informed the manager who said she "understand" but offered no apologies or made good on the issue. I dont care how the food is the is inexcusable.

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!
