“Fantastic Food, Great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

I must say that it's about time I found a restaurant that knows how to cook seafood as well as food in general. We had a party of 15 and the owner / manager was so accommodating for us. The food was fantastic. Clams, scallops, shrimp, haddock, all cooked to perfection like it should be. The kids dinners came out cooked correctly and hot! What a great crew there at the restaurant as well. We will definitely be back!

“Good food but noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

I had the clam chowder which was very good, made traditionally without flour or cornstarch. Then I had the baked lobster which was also excellent. The only downside is that the lounge where we were sitting was very noisy. Probably just some New Yorkers...

“Love the chowder!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Delicious dinner, but be prepared to spend some money. We ordered two lazy man's lobsters, two cups of chowder, two salads, and two beers...it cost over $100.

“The best chowder ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

We read the online reviews and they were spot on. We had a wonderful lunch salad. Oysters and chowder. This was the best chowder in Maine and we tried chowder at 7 different Maine restaurants. This is a must stop location the service was excellent.
