I have visited this restaurant several times, and have never been disappointed. My go to meal when I go out , is fish and chips. It is always good, and the batter is just right, not too thick, not too thin. The service is always great, food comes in a reasonable time, and the coffee is so good!

We arrived @ opening, 5 pm, took forever to get drinks as we had to remind the waitress of our order. My beer was fine, the mixed drink was awefull. Lobster dinner was dry and tasteless even with the melted butter, Very dissappointing ..Never again.

Well what can I say? It wont be getting my wife or me back there again. Food was cold. For a place that grows potatoes I guess this place didn't order any. As there was about a child hand full. The lobsters were like rubber. The service was slow. The only good thing I could say about the place was... More

I went here three times during my five week holiday. First time was with a girlfriend and we ordered and shared a few appetizers. The potato salad was so yummy that we ordered some to take back with us. The second visit was with another friend and when I raved about the potato salad they said that they do it... More

We ate out on the patio area for supper, our waitress was really great at making sure our toddler was set-up with a colouring book and crayons. I ordered the seafood pasta and the remaining 4 people ordered the fish & chips. Everyone enjoyed their meals, we went on a Monday evening, service was a little slow, but no different... More

My wife and I loved the atmosphere and the Lobster Dinner and the beer samples we got at the Lobster House! They even had a band playing! The only issue was it was the fisherman platter that we ordered and the curried mussel chowder only had one mussel. It was delicious and had an awesome curry but please add more... More

We recently went to this restaurant for an anniversary celebration. We had reservations and a table was available. We waited 45 minutes for our meal and mine arrived cold. Luckily our grandkids were patient waiting. For the price I wouldn't go back. The waiter just seemed to laugh off the wait time. We were unable to eat in the actual... More

If I can really write what I want to. I know for sure they will not let anyone see it. READ all of the bad reviews and then come up with your own impression. It was a big waist of money and time. If you have an extra day or two then go there. Very over priced and not very... More

My husband and I enjoyed a Lobster Linguini dinner. It was delicious. My husband also had over a dozen mussels he said were fantastic. Our only negative is the ambiance is just so so, main room is a party house and the back room for lunch and dinner is fine but nothing special. Food was great though!

Lobster overcooked and almost cold. Very few PEI potatoes (is there a shortage?) and a teaspoon of cold slaw. I ordered frozen margaritas and they were tasteless. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Go buy a pizza instead.

Thank David R
