Was very excited to get in and try some of the dishes here as the menu looked excellent. Lobster fritters were outstanding and the lobster quesadilla was also good. Service was very good too making this a great visit. Would definitely return.

I was alone so I sat at the bar. Staff was friendly and the place was very busy. The appetizer of steamer clams was delicious and a huge portion. The restaurant's specialty lobster was quite good and the lobster was delicious.
