Decent beer and excellent drink selection. Mussels are not to be missed and crab cakes were delectable.........not overpowered with bread crumbs and Old Bay so you taste the crab and they were 90% crab. Friendly staff, great bartender and nice views We will come back

On a positive note, the house salad and lobster dip were outstanding. The sweet potato fries were pretty good. The blueberry lemonade was a nice, refreshing treat. Unfortunately, our entrees were mediocre. I had baked haddock; it was very dry. My husband had fried haddock;...More

Best lobster stew ever. Yummy! Nice views, good service. Every seafood you'd like to have in Maine. Desserts look good, but after a delicious seafood meal, it's hard to imagine that you'd have room for any dessert.

Sadly we don't grill outside at this location as there isn't space. Our wharf is beautiful spot for a Shipwrecked Margarita though even without a grill. Hope to see you soon!

Seasonal, hard to staff year round, most staff return to school or teaching jobs, lose too much money on snow days in winter. Other places use 'foreign labor' and their work permits only last so long.

Not many vegan choices except a delicious house salad (minus the feta cheese), but packed with berries, oranges and pecans. We also have tasty sweet potato fries, steamed corn on the cob, & onion rings. Hope that helps!
