We visited for dinner and had a nice meal. The location is excellent as it is right across the street from LL Bean. Would definitely recommend for either lunch or dinner if you are in the area.

After shopping across the street at LL Bean we were ready for some cocktails. Had the $19.99 clam chowder special, very good.

If you want super fast service with very good food and don't mind a loud atmosphere, this place is a great stop! Everything was tops, from our server to the meal. Noisy, but not overwhelming.
