We stopped for lunch on our way through town. We used to stop here before, when it was a lobster pound several years ago. Great view of the harbor. It's back to the seafood/lobster theme. We both ordered the lobster roll. But were disappointed it...More

Hi there Since we are a family restaurant, sometimes we get larger parties with many children; oftentimes, they drop crayons and spill water...sometimes this happens before we can get to it; not excuses, just the reality of working with humans. I came onto the floor...More
