The manager here often stands right behind the counter like a hawk watching over the staff. She even noticed from 20 feet away when a cashier over-charged me .11 cents. Everything here is perfectly in place with piped in music from the 50's, 60's and...More

Recently ate at Lords and we were pleasantly surprised. A bit of a ride from the Seacoast but worth it. The value for the money is excellent. We got clam roll full of sweet big belly clams , fairly light batter, and a haddock sandwich...More
