A great place to eat as it’s right across the street from the Beach..Great view of ocean from restaurant..My wife and son both had the dinner with two Lobsters and they thoroughly enjoyed. Wife said Clam Chowder was best she had ever had..Terrific experience

Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your visit! Folks love our mussels and it is COOL & DELICIOUS to dip bread in the broth, I sure hope you asked for some! You mentioned two disappointing appetizers, I hope you enjoyed your meals!

We had a wonderful meal last fall when we visited The Lobster Cove, not so much this time, the staff was still excellent but the food was no so good, the fried clams were tasteless and under cooked.
