We shared a seafood platter, which is haddock, clams, shrimp and scallops with french fries and either potato salad or cole slaw. All the seafood was good, although the coating wasn't as light and tasty as some that I have had. It was a little...More

I was here in January, so the restaurant part is closed (it's outdoors). I've come here a couple of times now to get the fresh lobster meat to make lobster rolls for myself (or...if I'm being honest...to just eat straight out of the bag in...More

Read a review that said it's on river - it is, but not that you can see it. what you see is the highway. Don't let that dissuade you - the food is great, people are very nice. I wouldn't bother with the potato salad...More

The restaurant is right on the Penobscot River and the dining room affords a lovely view. We had good service and our food was very good. I had the 1 1/4 lb. lobster. The claws and the tail were pre-cut which made eating it fairly...More
