“Great lobster rolls”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

This is the place if you want a lobster roll overflowing with pure lobster and not the usual fillers that distract from the taste. The coleslaw was good but the fries were dark and over cooked. Pies delicious ! The staf were very friendly. We will go back for sure.

“Not Just the Lobster Club is Great”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

BCC lived up to the hype as far as we are concerned.

I got the Lobster club and it was delicious as expected. The surprise was my wife's native shrimp. Now understand, my wife gets native shrimp almost every place it is available so she knows what's good. Her opinion was the BCC shrimp were the best she ever tasted. No idea what the secret was...maybe just an extra plump and juicy batch, but they were good!

Service was friendly and attentive. Can't ask for a better lunch experience than that.

Next time we'll be trying the breakfasts as well as another lunch (or 2).

“The Owner”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We stayed around the corner from the Brass Compass and my husband went and had breakfast the first day we were there. After that we didn't go any where else! The owner is a very hands on owner even bring a cupcake with candle to a local three year old girl for her birthday !.
