“Great views of Nubble Light and the coast.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

It's a bit on the expensive side for what you get. The seafood is fresh. The views are beautiful and the kids love to sit where they can see Nubble and watch divers in the water. I'm usually a bit bummed I spent that much on dinner after I see the check.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

We have been to the restaurant numerous times over the years food is good. New menu jacked up prices added 20 percent tip for party of eight, felt price shock when bill came. Will not be back anytime soon

“Keep driving.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

How this place got such good reviews is beyond me? The food was horrible, portions where shockingly small, and the staff seemed annoyed to be waiting on us. If it wasn't for the beautiful lighthouse nearby this place would of been out business a long time ago.

“Don't expect too much”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

Had out of town relatives come by and we wanted to show them why we love the Seacoast. Have had good experience the last time we are here,about 5 years ago.
We had bad storm blow through and they had no power. Granted beyond their control but...
When we were seated, our waitress told us, no boiled lobster,no soda and obviously no sweetener for tea or heat for coffee. Asked repeatedly for sweetener, never got it.
2 cheeseburgers and 2 lobster rolls with 3 teas and a coffee for $75......
Burgers look like they came right out of the package from the grocery store. Round and thin. Certainly not worth the high price.$10.95
Server was not friendly.
As I said they had not control over the storm but with no boiled lobster and other issues,they should have given everyone a discount. Or not even been open for business.
Their idea of power was a,generator in the back of a pickup.

“Awesome Lobsta!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

The lobster is fantastic, view is beautiful and the employees are super. There's not a bad table in the house. The prices, however, are high, even for lunch. I've been at other restaurants in ME where I've gotten an excellent lobster meal for a better price. I believe you're definitely paying for the view, which can't be beat. I had the lobster salad and it was superb - very refreshing for a summer lunch meal. Kudos to the restaurant and staff. They also have a live web cam on their site: http://www.foxslobster.com/
