This was exceptional for lunch. The fresh haddock was the best we have had and we are picky. He is at a new location so we were on the scavenger hunt for a while as we had called in the order and went to the...More

My boyfriend and I shared the classic sized lobster roll and a bowl of the seafood chowder. The lobster roll was piled high and the crowder was delicious. All of the food was great! Only complaint was that I couldn't find a light in the...More

I originally showed up to the old location as the google listing was not updated. I am glad we did the extra research to find the new location because the food was definitely worth it! The only down fall was that I asked for Conneticut...More

Don't let the location of this place deter you. We thought Google maps had failed us (it's situated in Westbrook in a residential neighborhood in what looks to be an old pizza joint next to a barber shop, not anywhere near the ocean). Despite that...More

As my title says, this was the best Lobster Roll I've personally had. A quaint little shack just outside downtown and the Old Port, this is a must stop for any visitors to Maine.

The most expensive of four places we enjoyed lobster rolls but very fresh and tasty and generally a good portion. Fried clams were exceptional with a very light batter that did not overpower the meat. Not much ambiance; crowded inside with 3-4 tables and outdoors...More

OK, it is small and it's a wee bit hard to find (though plenty of parking behind the eatery), but if you crave freshly prepared local seafood and don't mind eating in a tiny little hole in the wall--by all means go for it. First,...More
