This was a great family restaurant. It had a buffet for those that like choices. I had the 11/4 pound lobster at a fair price. It was plenty good and had 2 sides. Not many restaurant open on mid to late October along Hwy 1 along the Maine coast.

Great place to visit to get a nourishing meal and lovely atmosphere. The only thing I don't like are all the televisions.
