Wet, cold day in NE Harbor. Went here really just because it was convenient. I had a cup of the soup du jour--corn chowder. It was gross. It tasted like it came from a can. I'm not a picky eater and I like to give...More

3 of us had an early dinner at 4:30pm. We had the nachos, garden salad, haddock au gratin with mushrooms, fish fry with cole slaw, & lobster scallop casserole! Mashed potatoes were amazing! Carrot cake for dessert was also delicious!

Came here after a terrible stop at Tan Turtle. Colonel’s was a complete opposite. The service was quick,informative and friendly. The menu was extensive but not overwhelming. I ordered the lobster sliders and my husband ordered the lobster BLT. Both were packed with fresh lobster,...More
