Cute on the outside, that's why I stopped. Poor food, Fried Seafood was greasy and the Hamburger was overpriced for what I got. They need to work on quality.

Good lobster, eating outdoor, on a picnic table, no fuss, no waiting, fresh , also all the seafood you are expecting to find like shrimps, steamers, crab cakes etc.

The lobster chowder was hot and had a good flavor the same with the clam chowder. Fried whole belly clams are exactly what you would expect from a lobster shack. Next trip we'll try the lobster.

Excellent meal one lobster, corn and potatoes for $20. You eat outside in a nice picnic area. Fried food available too inside the building. Bring cash or you can get cash at the ATM there. They do not accept credit or debit cards.

This was our first time there and it was a nice alternative to a regular sit down restaurant. No frills and you could bring your own drinks. Nice picnic tables and a casual meal.

Staff was very friendly but the food was not special. We would not order the fried food, hamburgers or pie.

do not waste your time. There are so many better places to eat. Their lobster is tasteless and not worth the money. You are in the state of endless lobster, go elsewhere.
