Thank you so much. We are glad you loved your experience. Sometimes it takes altitle longer for our food to come out because of the fresh products that we use. We have live lobster tanks, where the lobsters stay until it is time to cook....More

Oh my we stopped for a lobster roll and were not disappointed by theses. We got two for 27. The lobster was lightly dressed in mayo which allowed the sweet lobster meat to shine!! By far one of the best lobster rolls we've ever had!

Very sorry your experience was not as expected. We have had wonderful reviews all year on the clam chowder. I am sorry it was not what you expected. If there is anything I can do let me know, as I always expect 100% satisfaction.

Thanks so much we love the big portions also. Fresh is the main key I am picking lobster meat right now for today's lobster rolls. Have a great day.

Had seafood chowder, broiled haddock basket. All was very good. Haddock was very fresh. Needed a larger portion of Cole slaw. Sat out back on a picnic table on the lawn.

Very average food. The two young women at the window were not trained well. One of them could not answer questions about the menu for the person in front of me. We'd been "lobstered out" so met family here for burgers and fish and chips....More
