We had lobsters at the gender, weight that we wanted. Service just freindly and fine. The presentation was as usual, not fancy service but the focus is on the meal. Nice evening.

We had steamers and lobster's, both were wonderful. The only ambivalence over the mashed potatoes that were very starchy and sticky. Otherwise it was very very good.

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.
