Stopped here based on other Tripadvisor reviews. They are correct, great seafood at reasonable prices. Nice employees too! Only outdoor seating available. Buy a hotdog for your dog and you get a free ice cream. Dog treats available too!

What a treat this place is! A simple, take out place housed in a trailer, but man, can they cook! Also the freshest of ingredients. The haddock sandwich is delicious and huge! Fries are great as well. There are picnic tables on the lot along the river. Doesn't look like much but don't be fooled. You will enjoy a varied menu and well prepared food. Give this a try if you are in the Machias area.

As someone who lives in the area, this place is always worth the drive. The new monster size lobster roll is my meal of choice, along with a coffee shake.... but my favorite is the fries. They have some kind of special crispy covering so that I even like them when they aren't piping hot (which is unusual for me). And if you have a pet they offer it a snack, too, I think! Sweet!

The management believes that it takes quality purchased food to serve a quality product. Everything is fresh and they refuse to sell items that are from questionable sources. The Haddock Monster burger is a huge fillet that overhangs a nice bulkie roll. The batter is thin but serves to hold in all the delicious juicy flavors. The white flesh flakes easily and is the best fish I have ever eaten aside from fish and chips in London. A person from away might be temped to drive past this converted trailer, DON"T, The picnic tables looking out over the water and the smell of the ocean only add to ones enjoyment. The also feature crab, shrimp, scallops, and lobster in various preparations. I'm sure the non aquatic items are also delicious.
