Been coming since I was a kid. Affordable and delicious. No frills just amazing lobsters, steamers and chowder. Pack your own picnic and beverages and enjoy a tasty meal. You won't be disappointed. Make sure you tip as they work hard and appreciate it!

SHHHHH! It's a well known locals seafood restaurant. Somehow the secret got out. No waiters, table cloths, silverware, china or even a menu. It can be a little difficult to find because it is off the beaten path. It is located on a side road...More
