My wife and I went here for dinner; we split a bowl of their delicious claim chowder, she had the lobster roll and I had fried belly clams. Her roll was stuffed with fresh unadulterated lobster, with no filler and just a cup of mayo...More

My wife ordered the lobster roll and I ordered the lobster mac n cheese. Very good. Service wasn't great, but the food was fresh and seemed to portray the authenticity that's highlighted in this quaint town.

Crap cakes and fish basket were very good and priced very well for what you got. Grilled chicken dinner was average and a bit pricey. Chicken fingers were the typical. Server did great job.

Great food, great drinks, great service! Turned out our waitress was the lovely daughter of the manager of the Captains Bounty, the motel we stayed at!

This was good but not great. I saw and heard some locals there so even though it is a tourist town this place will give you a good mean with good service.

I went out to dinner at 7 o'clock on Friday night. Most places in bearskin neck were closed already. Friendly staff, good food, excellent view of the cove. Fair prices. Would definitely go again.

We had a wonderful meal. Food was so good and prices were not bad. We had a table by the windows with a beautiful view.

I'm not really sure. If you can eat steamed lobster or ask for the haddock prepared plain with some lemon juice. They always have a fresh vegetable and you can order salad as a second vegetable. I would think you could find... More
