Had our final Maine vacation dinner here. Warm, cozy atmosphere with pleasant service and good food. We had fried lobster and fried haddock. Prices are comparable to other places in the area. Good portion size.

Four of us enjoyed a casual good meal here during the week. It's a no frills place. Very friendly staff, good seafood, reasonable prices. Nothing fancy, just good Maine seafood. We will go back again.

Try the lobster soup - that stood out. Fried seafood was plentiful but ordinary. Atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable.

They stay open later than other places. We just wanted something light. The selection of draft beer is good. They have the best clam chowder I ever had. They also have basic bar foor.
