Lots of meat that isn't over dressed and a perfectly toasted bun. My only qualm is there is celery mixed in with the lobster and this is just not my thing, I find it over powers the lobster, so if possible I would ask for...More

I am very sorry that you had a poor experience with us. I, like many other owner/operators across the Island, make it a point to offer up only our best each and every time. That being said, sometimes we fall a little short, as was...More
