Nice location, no frills, paper & plastic. $5 for a Coors Light seems expensive, considering the no frills picnic table location. Food is good but small portions for the price. Onion rings were crispy and good but pricy at $6.25. Plenty of other places in...More

This place is great. The food is good and very hot. It's right on the water so the scenery is pretty. Plenty to choose from if you don't eat fish or seafood. The staff are very helpful. Worth the trip.

Hi Kate-We are sorry you feel that you had less than a positive experience. The servers do try and accommodate the customer with their manager if there is an issue with anything if the customers let them know. I myself and 2 other Managers were...More

Disappointed to find out there were only cold lobster rolls. Settled on fried oysters and cole slaw.

Hi Arlyn- We have big menu for the small kitchen that we have. Our menu is shown on our website. Although we don't offer hot lobster rolls, we do sell a Sautéed lobster dish and boiled lobsters that are hot.
