I came across this place late at night with my family. We had seen the restaurant listed in a guide so we decided to give it a try. The guide did not steer us wrong, the food was good. It was late when we walked in and all the patrons stopped to look at us. I offered a greeting and... More

This place is your typical small town diner, but serves amazing food with amazing service! The fried Haddock tasted fresh with a very light breading and the onion rings were to die for because they weren't bogged down by heavy batter and grease. So light and crispy! The lobster rolls have a nice mayonnaise base and large chunks of lobster... More

The staff is fun and very local. The food is standard diner fare and acceptable. But the place needs some serious cleaning and tidying. I can't eat there again because of that.

This is a modest little place with a limited menu, similar to diner fare. Prices are very reasonable, friendly service and good basic food. It's a short walk to the commuter rail station.

Looking for a Lobster Roll? This is it. My aunt insisted Dotty & Ray's had the best lobster roll, and she wasn't kidding. Big chunks of lobster and delicious fries. For 12.95 I can't miss.

OMG!!! Don't miss this place, especially for the fried clams or the most succulent Lobster Roll. I am still dreaming about my lobster. I was just driving out of town and I saw the sign and went in. It's a great local place with friendly locals. I was with a friend who had never been to New England and she... More

As our season of road trip hockey. We stopped by and had a pretty good breakfast. A bit slow to get our food. In the end friendly and good. Local local.

Stopped here for lunch on our way from Boston to Maine. Ordered the haddock sandwiches. Our sandwiches were served quickly with a generous side of fries. Very fresh fish! Definitely a good choice.
