Stopped here for lunch. Beautiful flowers at the entry. Friendly hostess. Many choices of where to sit. I chose outside on the dock. I had fresh local fish and a great piece of blueberry rhubarb pie.

I don't know if Scot the owner is cooking here anymore, I would reckon he's over at his new place Rhumbline in Camden. But if he is here, wow, c'mon, have you read these reviews? We enjoyed your place for the past 4 summers but...More

My wife enjoyed her lobster. We ordered Calamari which was about 3/4 of a usual restaurant serving. My $25 bouillab aisle had a small lobster claw, 2 mussels, 2 clams, a few pieces of squid, a small piece of haddock. I left hungry and will...More
