We enjoyed our lobster meal here on Memorial Day. The lobster was served steaming hot and the shell was cut to make it easier to get at the meat. It was very good and the service was wonderful .

Great place for seafood. Casual atmosphere and good service. Choose your life lobster from the tank. Once cooked they cut and crack for you so it’s so easy to eat. Loved it!

Picking your own lobster was a unique experience. The service was very good and the food was excellent. The raspberry pie for dessert is not to be missed!

Good eats at a reasonable price. Nothing fancy, service was good. Have had a better tasting lobster elsewhere, but enjoyed this restaurant nonetheless.

Fun and fabulous food! Lobsters and clams steamed.. The chowder was classic and wonderfully Maine! The wait staff was fun and efficient. Lots of napkins to help you enjoy your lobster!

We do not take reservations however, we do like a "heads up" when a large party is coming in. Please call the restaurant to discuss further when we open for the season. Thanks for contacting us.
