The minute we walked in we were happy to have chosen this place! The twin lobster meal, lobster roll and two different chowders was so so good...I wish we had more time in the area to visit a few more times. The lobster was cooked just right...melt in your mouth goodness! My mouth is watering just thinking about it! The... More

Stopped in here for lunch and we stood around for a little not sure how things worked. Once we looked lost, we were told to read the menu off the wall and order at the register. The staff was very nice. The lunch special was about $7 so we opted for that, I got fired shrimp and fries and my... More

My husband and I had the Haddock. I had the sandwich and my husband had the platter. The fish was so fresh that when I went to take a bite of my sandwich, it literally flaked apart in the bun and some onto my plate. It was so tasty and melt in your mouth that you didn't care how messy... More

Made it Maine looking for a great lobster roll. Was expecting a warm lobster roll but theirs was like a lobster salad. Portion size was pretty small for a $14 sandwich with very little flavor. Needless to say was disappointed. Crab cakes were good though.

We allowed Trip Advisor to send us to this #2 rated diner......ambiance was just that a diner with the menu listed on the wall.....we ordered lobster nuggets and fried clam combo with fries to share among the three of us, as well as we each had lobster bisque. The nuggets were generous, the clams few (maybe four strips) and the... More

A warning to families planning for a sit down meal...this is a different type of restaurant. I would research the meal you want prior to going, as you have to order at the register and receive a number as the meals are freshly prepared. There is very few tables inside available (rainy nights) and you have to grab one immediately... More

The hotel clerk recommended this place for seafood. I just ordered the lobster roll and it was delicious, one of the best I had ever tried. Fresh, delicious and great service.

This combination fish market and restaurant provides very good meals, including the least expensive lobster roll to be found in the area. (The salt water taffy boxes they offer are way over priced, however.)

Saw a decent rating on Google, needed a place near the airport- regretted the choice. The lobster was tough and chewy, selection was very limited. Definitely won't be going there again.
