We stopped here by accident and found this to be one of the best lunch spots on our whole trip. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. The daily special of fried clams was fantastic. My wife had the blueberry pie for dessert...a real hit.

That days it all. Had the clam chowder and lobster roll and they were great. My wife had the New England boil which was corned beef with cabbage beets turnip carrot and potatoes and she absolutely loved it. Large selection on the menu and good service makes this a place you should try.

Absolutely the best clam chowder I have ever eaten. Roch, creamy. Full of clams and potatoes. Perfect bowl of warmth and goodness. Sweet waitress. Young and very earnest.

Fantastic place to meet a friend(s) for an early, unhurried breakfast. I've been more than satisfied with their food offerings, although they could shake up their "specials" to offer more week-to-week variety for their regulars, like me. Prices are well within reason and the staff is friendly and efficient. Breakfast is my favorite dining-out meal so I am not sure... More

So I've had a few breakfasts across the states and I have to say this was at the lower end of the scale. Limited size portions with soggy toast, luke warm tea in a mug and our table had to keep asking for a coffee refills. Maybe I chose the wrong thing on the menu or it might have been... More
