“Fun & Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Saw the reviews and we decided to stop. What an awesome experience. John was terrific at making the first really good lobster roll (I had Red's...just a bunch of cold lobster with butter to pour on top) I had in Maine.He added tomato and lettuce with mayo. THE BEST!! The handmade fries will want you to ask for more and more! This is one place you have to stop and try. Burgers, lobster bites, onion rings, fries, Philly steak sandwich, lobster rolls.......................all the BEST!!!!

“Sheer Awesomeness.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Generous portions, unique flavors cooked to perfection, extensive menus easily 100 or more items! Great personal service, very friendly engaging people, fun atmosphere! Who'd think a "side of the road shack", would be such a gem! I would love to try everything on the menu. Seafood, hotdogs, burgers, Greek food, root beer floats, milkshakes, handmade fries, slaw and tartar sauce! Tons more! Awesome place. This guy KNOWS food!

“Awesome!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Delicious!! I had a chocolate malted milkshake for starters. Made perfectly. Then a nice beer battered haddock with hand cut fries, cut right before my eyes!! And a nice homemade tartar sauce to finish it off. The owner John and his trusty assistant Jay were friendly and welcoming. Others with me had the fried clams, and they too were delicious. I hope to go back there the next time I'm in the area.

Yet again the food was amazing, the clams and haddock were delicious. The fries were also very good. The side of baked beans were really good.

“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

The food was good, but it's super greasy. Not a healthy lunch. But the owner is the nicest guy and was really friendly and welcoming. He was absolutely great. If you're driving through the area you should definitely pull over and pick up lunch. Try the fried lobster bits.
