We stopped in here one evening to get takeout. We ordered lobster rolls and chocolate cake. Absolutely delicious! Fantastic huge chunks of lobster with crispy french fries. If you are craving the classic fried seafood of the Northeast, this is the place to get it. The chocolate cake was moist and rich, too. Service for takeout was super fast and friendly staff.

Stopped in for breakfast. Our waitress made us feel like one of the locals that filled the restaurant. Blueberry pancakes were very good! Great place to eat with plenty of parking.

This place is very informal and welcoming. On the Wednesday we were there the place was filled mainly with locals and a table of coast guard officers. They are famous for their cod cheeks, which I did not try (our friend who lives on Cape Ann said they are delicious and similar to scallops). I had the $10 lobster roll special - which I think they have every Wednesday - it was mighty good. The kids enjoyed their fish and chips and the service was friendly and attentive. This is right up the road from good harbor beach and makes a great economical lunchtime stop when at the beach.
