Got lobster roll + haddock. Super fresh, big pieces of meat. The view is amazing: sea + lighthouse. The ambiance inside the restaurant is average and looks nicer at the 1st floor. A little pricey for what you get too, but it's a pretty touristy place so it makes sense. The ice cream downstairs is AMAZING! I would go back to this place!

Gone here since they used to have lobster tanks out front. Large open dining room, nice menu, not overly expensive considering the location. One minor gripe - when called for hours was told they might close early if it was slow. Luckily more customers showed up after we did.

Had take-out here and was very disappointed that the meal was so lacking. Fish and chips with no cole slaw? Overpriced (you are paying for the location - better off bringng a sandwich!) and not cooked well (the deep fry sauce on the fish was still partly soggy). Have eaten inside several times and it was ok, but definitely better than the take-out.

Lobster was great.... Steak was sent back. My husband said it was the worst steak he has ever seen.... He didn't even take a bite

I wish we did not eat here. It was the worst food we had during our Maine coastal trip. It's not even about it being hugely overpriced. I don't think it was fit for human consumption. Both the fries and the roll had rancid taste. We picked at the lobster meat in our lobster rolls which was not the greatest or the freshest either, and having to pay $60+ for two rolls and two cups of chowder, left. Yes, the view of the Nubble light is beautiful. But decor of the restaurant is so outdated, it's another reason to enjoy it from the outside.
