Lobster Lobster Lobster. Lobsters of every size, steamed, baked stuffed, surf and turf. I had surf and turf with Sirloin Steak. The steak was good just right and the steamed Lobster Tails were delicious. Steak had the charred taste, mmmm.

The lobster was good, they even cut it in half for us and cracked the claws. Easier to eat. Generous with the sides to go with it as well. Service was very pleasant.

We do not take reservations however, we do like a "heads up" when a large party is coming in. Please call the restaurant to discuss further when we open for the season. Thanks for contacting us.
