All four of our party ordered the twin lobster special and were not disappointed. The accompanying baked potatoes, sweet potato fries and butternut squash were equally well prepared and taste. Sitting across the street from the ocean while dinning on lobster with good friends just doesn't get much better. A modest place with good food and a friendly staff.

This restaurant was just across the road from where we were staying, so we decided to pop in and were so glad we did! We sat upstairs, which would have been lovely in the day time.

We arrived at 5:30 PM Saturday and were seated right away. Our waitress was not very personable. When our prime ribs, baked stuffed haddock, baked potato, squash arrived they were all cold. We requested the meals to be reheated and we were told the Ribs would not be cooked as ordered. When the ribs were brought back they were cut... More

Sorry to hear about this experience. I will certainly talk with Saturday night's staff. If the ribs were ordered medium rare, they could be cool to the touch on the inside. However the rest of the items most certainly should be piping hot. If you would like to give us another chance feel free to email me your info @... More

My wife had lobster pie, butternut squash & coleslaw. It was very good. I had halibut, squash & baked potato. It was also very good. Our waitress was very friendly and did a fine job. Great evening out.

We ate here upon recommendation from fellow guest at hotel. Lobster roll was awesome! Generous lobster and made just right. Onion soup was excellent. Kids burgers were very good and big. Chicken tenders appetizer was very good and large portion. Nice atmosphere. Friendly, fast service.

The twin 1 1/4 pound lobsters were on special at $28 - reg $39. They were excellent. Wife's baked haddock was very good and her squash was excellent. No view at night but the restaurant is right across the street from the beach. Excellent waitress.

The lobster was so sweet and fresh - and a little less expensive than a formal restaurant. The wait staff was delightful. All the sides were good. An excellent choice when you want to relax and enjoy. Did I mention the ocean view!!! And the Main blueberry pie!

The restaurant is right on the shore, so the view is spectacular. The food is very good as well. Made a point of coming here for the lobster after having visited for lunch a couple years back.
