Delicious lobster roll (though small-ish, $19) and amazing smoked mussels (huge serving, $15). Their "signature" blueberry lemonade was also excellent, with real blueberries.

I love pulled pork. This was just ok, kinda bland. Brisket was a little better. Fries were good. Lobster tail was small and pricey compared to other places we've been. Server was nice and laid back. And I did see ribs on the menu.

One of the best lobster pounds we visited. You get a choice of sides which is a nice bonus. It is priced competitively with others.
