We were able to visit the area for a few hours and wandered in to Bartley's for lunch because it was close and we were hungry. Once there I pulled up TA to read the reviews and was disheartened because it sounded like a poor choice. Sure am glad we stayed! The staff was very friendly and helpful and spent time talking to us (I think they were getting a kick out of our southern accents!). I have eaten lobster before, but never been overly impressed - after our lunch my opinion has changed! My daughter and I shared the crab cakes appetizer and the hot lobster roll. Absolutely the best crab cakes I have ever eaten! I have never had a lobster roll before so I have nothing to compare it to, but let me say that it was incredible! We were told that the seafood had been caught that morning and I have to believe them because it was so incredibly fresh with no "fishy" taste. Yes, the decor was simple and a little dated, but it appeared clean to me. Staff was friendly and food was delicious - not sure what else you would want!
