Dinner was just ok the other night. We tried the scallops which were cooked fine, but the baked potato was cold. We also tried the spicy lobster chowder and it was delicious.

It was a clam strips kind of a lunch. The clam strips were nicely cooked. Hand cut French fries. We had lunch on the dock with the view of the harbor. Our waitress was very nice and efficient.
