We enjoyed our meal and service was great and friendly, but the food was average. We ordered everything from the 1lb lobster, to the crab leg special, and the lobster ravioli. Good variety of choices, but again, just average in taste/preparation.

Three of us enjoyed Lobster pie. Certainly worth ordering, it was delicious and much tastier than one we had had at another restaurant in Meredith. The fourth member of our group enjoyed at tasty 10oz steak to his liking and the accompaniments were good too. All freshly cooked. Our lovely waitress was charming, friendly and very helpful. Thank you.

Atmosphere and service were fine. Wife got 1-pound lobster and twice-baked potatoes, both of which she said were fine. I got 1-pound stuffed lobster. Stuffing was mostly buttered bread crumbs with a little crab meat mixed in. Can't complain, for the $2 upcharge, and it tasted good. It was very filling, but the waitress told me it would be. The...

What could be better than a perfect autumn day and a delightful lunch. The broiled haddock was fresh and very good. My husband had a seafood combo platter. It was perfectly prepared! Great lunch with a friendly staff !

I was skeptical given the notion that this was a seafood place away from the ocean. The wait was minimal despite a full parking lot. The friendliness of the staff amazing. And the seafood fresh and tasty. What the plates lacked I. Presentation was surely made better by the taste.

Could just as easily have been called the Lobster Shack because that is pretty much what it is. However, the food was excellent and the waitress, Jordan, was so bright and cheery she made the evening for us. On the downside we thought the wine by the glass was way over the top for a non fine dining establishment.
