We were a family of 8, we called ahead & they had the table ready when we arrived. Casual atmosphere, great menu with lots of choices. Service was excellent, our waitress was great! Definitely recommend eating here!

Off to a side street away from the crowds, this lively restaurant has a good buzz and nice outdoor seating. Service is efficient and friendly. When I saw the person at the next table order it, I changed my mind and ordered The lobster roll...More

Energetic atmosphere. Friendly service, but not to attentive. Tasty lobster mac & cheese. Great fish sandwich. Lobster stew okay and over priced for a small cup. Good beer and wine. Would definitely recommend and come back!

We ate lunch here and it could not have been better. The waiter handling our table of 8 was patient and informative to a bunch of tourists who knew nothing about Maine cuisine.

Went to this restaurant, because it had a lot of choices for vegetarians. The hostess was extremely rude. Did not ask us if we were there for dinner, we had to ask her, wasn't making eye contact with us apparently there was something more interesting...More

I believe they do. They definitely will take a call ahead giving you an estimated wait time when you call.
