Excellent meal one lobster, corn and potatoes for $20. You eat outside in a nice picnic area. Fried food available too inside the building. Bring cash or you can get cash at the ATM there. They do not accept credit or debit cards.

This was our first time there and it was a nice alternative to a regular sit down restaurant. No frills and you could bring your own drinks. Nice picnic tables and a casual meal.

Staff was very friendly but the food was not special. We would not order the fried food, hamburgers or pie.

When the owner belittles you and tell you "go to hell" twice when you complain about the service and sub standard food ... Think they are properly in the wrong business... Please take my advice and avoid this establishment.

Ordered inside the building. Took food outside to the picnic tables. There's an outside cooking area where your lobster can be cooked to order. Beer selection was a bit limited to whatever was stocked in the two coolers. I had a lobster roll but not...More

Visited for dinner on a Thursday evening during mosquito feeding time. Our mistake. Customers walk into a small building, place their order, grab a table outside and wait for their number to be called. Drinks are in a vending machine outside. We ordered the crab...More
