“Hit the spot”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The seafood eaters in our group were craving some seafood, so we headed out to Chapin's one night with a large party. The seafood eaters were quite pleased. The steak eaters were also pleased. I had a taco salad with grilled chicken, and it was ok. But then, I guess one should go to Chapin's for the seafood. :) Service was great.

“Good, but not great”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Went with a party of 10, and while many dishes were good (fried calamari appetizer, salmon/steak tip/shrimp combo), their signature hot lobster roll left much to be desired. Five out of ten of us had it, and 4 out of 5 we're disappointed. Definitely had lots of lobster meat, but it was overcooked and had no flavor. Fried shrimp also tasted like something I could have taken out of my freezer and thrown in the microwave. Expected better, and have definitely had better here in the past. Hoping this was just an off night.

“Lobster Quesadillas are to die for!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

My husband and I were vacationing in the area and chose this restaurant based on the proximity to our cottage and the reviews. I had read somewhere about the lobster quesadillas, so we both ordered them. They were absolutely to die for! We sat outside - the patio was very nice.
