We really enjoyed our experience there! Food was good and the service was excellent - if you are fortunate you will get Robin as your server.

Great atmosphere and the food was good too! I had a lobster roll and it was good. We ate outside and had a lovely time. I wish they gave more onion rings with the meal but it was delish.

We passed this place a few times and decided to try it on a Wednesday about 4PM. They weren't busy yet as we have seen the parking lot packed, usually a good sign. Not a good sign at all.
The waitress was sort of friendly, seemed like she had something better to do and we waited too long for the order to be taken. The meals came reasonably fast....however.....the scallops weren't fresh, the shrimp were small and tasteless and the clams were less then average .... for where it is in Maine they should be fresh!
A little container of tartar sauce...you can't afford a bottle of it on the table? The baked potato was obviously cooked many hours before and not done all the way through, also not nearly enough sour cream for it ! A small dry container of cole slaw didn't fill the bill.
The best part were the onion rings, guess that is the only good part.
Maybe the BBQ and smoked meats are better but we won't be stopping to find out, there are other places in the area.
We were very disappointed and would NOT recommend this place to anyone.

We've been hearing about this place for years from members of our family. We finally had an opportunity to go for a family dinner. Our food was bland and overcooked. The greens on the salad bar were wilted and unappetizing. Even my son's chicken fingers were dry and flavorless. The only bright spots were the tasty curly fries and cold beer but not worth the $100 (including tip) we paid for the three of us.

We stopped on our way to Canada in mid July around the lunch hour. We were eager for seafood. We ordered fried clams and haddock. The portions were disappointingly small even on the small plate that they were served on and the seafood tasted dry and not very fresh. The coleslaw was in a little paper cup and tasted if it had been in the frig too long. Cocktail sauce in a commercial cup which is ok if you are just a takeout but this was a large sit down restaurant with an outside cooker for lobster dinners. The service was laconic and we feel what we got was not only overpriced but pretty mundane. We only had entrees and one coffee and we paid about $35.00 before tip. What a disappointment
