As the title states, you must try the Lobster Crab Chowder as it is simply to die for. Also the bar specials are worth a try. Excellent and consistent food every time.

Excellent service with good local food. We shared steamers and they were delicious even though they were sandy. The entrees were well prepared and very enjoyable.

Lovely food and atmosphere. We were tired after a long day travelling so ate in bar as opposed to restaurant. Lovely experience. The restaurant was slightly more dressy. Book ahead if possible as there appeared to be coach parties.
