really have a huge lobster boil going on here, wood fired. lots of folks taking pictures of the boilers and the guys manning the pots. you pick your own lobster with help, a la carte the rest of the menu, very efficient, once you understand.

We ordered dinner to be ready at 7:30pm and it was ready and hot. We ordered 2 lobsters, 2 corn on the cob, a cup of chowder and a lobster stew - I can’t forget the blueberry pie. It was fabulous! Don’t forget to order...More
