We ate outdoors. Not much of a view, but really great fish dinners, and wonderful mashed potatoes. Got pastries at the bakery for breakfast next day.

My hubby and I both had the lobster melt special. You had a choice of bread and it came with a delicious cream base fish chowder. The melt had lots of lobster and cheese and was definitely worth the ride out to Northeast Harbor!

We go here almost every summer when we visit Northeast Harbor. It was not as good this year as in years past. The lobster roll had way too much mayo, the crab salad sandwich smelled a little funky, and the fries were under cooked. Disappointing....More

We were looking for a quick breakfast, and this was perfect! The selection of homemade pastries was amazing! Our group chose blueberry turnovers and cinnamon rolls, but it was a touch choice with such a selection!
