Thank you for the review, sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the Lobster Pie, fortunately there are several other lobster dished for you to choose from!

Nice cheery restaurant with a beautiful view of the ocean. I recommend only ordering seafood. Other options are not great. Most seafood restaurants are able to do other foods well. The chicken pot pie was not great. The chicken may have been canned. ugh.

Sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. We will look at the Pot Pie recipe, I can assure you though that the chicken is not from a can!

Breakfast on the patio was very good and the service excellent. Simple restaurant but very clean. The eggs were cooked perfectly and we enjoyed the view of the ocean. We'll go back, maybe for lunch or dinner next time.

This is another solid seaside restaurant in York, Maine with a heavy emphasis on seafood. They have beef specials and serve an above average diner type breakfast to boot. The wait staff is cordial and welcoming. Lobster is king.

Stopped in for lunch after reading other reviews. Lobster roll & haddock were good. Service was as well. Nice view right across the road from the water. Cute lobster shaped Adirondack chairs out front. Would visit again.

Across from the beach. Does have some outside dining area. Can be very crowded but does do call ahead seating. Very casual. Cocktails come in a plastic cup. Food is average to slightly above. Servers very good!
