The seafood is excellent, so is the atmosphere. It is a short ride from the seaport and is one of the best places to eat in Port Clyde. Recommended.

A friend and I went here for lunch one day (since the place that we were searching for was closed for the season!). It was a nice lunch. I had a salad that was fresh but small - not a lot added to the greens. For a lunch salad (not a side salad) it was a bit disappointing. My friend... More

I decided to get fried whole bellied clams as I had never had them. When asked the waitress told me that it was an acquired taste kinda dish and she turned out... More

I ordered a cup of clam chowder for $5 and my partner ordered the fried calamari appetizer for $9. The clam chowder had virtually no clams in it and tasted like wall paper paste. Not a hint of cream or butter. The calamari was over done and you get a very small quantity. This place is a Linda Bean restaurant.... More

Stopped here with my wife while exploring Maine. We ordered the lobster roll (of course) and the crab roll. We found both over-stuffed with seafood with great herb mayonnaise. Chips were great too. Top that off with a few cold local beers, a sunny afternoon on an outside deck and you have the makings of a great lunch. Since the... More

Most of my clams were broken and the lobster was over cooked containing hardly any meat. Not worth the price or drive.

Location is outstanding, right on the Port Clyde harbor. Dining is outside under a fancy tent - so open to all things including some that fly. Lobster stew was a top 3 of all time for us. And we do like lobster stew. Lobster rolls were good but we would not call them outstanding. Service was fine, if a little... More

Hey, I get it: you're on the water, salty air, etc. But when a food establishment admits its fly problem is so bad, they hand out fly zappers to customers, maybe you don't want to eat there. The food itself is fine: nothing out of the ordinary for a basic clam/lobster shack. But since there are so many others on... More
