If I ever end up on death row, this is what I'll ask for as my last meal -- the lobster dinner from Old Fish Factory. My expectations were high and were exceeded. The 1.5 pound lobster was perfectly cooked and came with a wonderfully...More

Took advantage of a gorgeous sunny day to eat on the patio. Between us we enjoyed the seafood wrap and seafood chowder. Chowder can a bit lukewarm but both loaded with seafood and yummy! View of ocean and town topped off a great experience.
