Lobster anyway you want it . Pick your own and wait at picnic tables out front overlooking bay or in upstairs dining room. Busy place where you order downstairs and wait about 15min for meal

Different way of eating. Order next to lobster tanks. Take drinks. Eat on picnic tables. And then enjoy your delicious lobster and even better view of Belfast Harbor 5*****

I do not know . Cooked fresh lobster with butter is their thing - and they do it well - so that is what I have
Family eats lobster I don't. Any fish alternative?

They have steamed clams and clam chowder, but otherwise not much for a menu. Lobster is their thing and they do it well and their steamers are AWSOME !
