“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

We had dinner here after the the Fourth of July parade and the mussels recommended by the waitress was outstanding. The Caesar salad with lobster lacked flavor and was a bit dry. The kids chicken fingers were also delicious.

“Had Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Most of our group was content with pastries and drinks for breakfast but my husband likes a good breakfast on vacation. He and my son breakfasted here and said everything was great and the service was excellent.

“Hostess extremely unhelpful, incorrect wait time quoted”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

We were quoted a wait time of 40-50 minutes for a table of 6. I went to check close to 40 minutes, and they said 30 more. Then, it was actually at least 50 minutes more before they called to let me know a table was ready. In the meantime, they seated several groups of 4 and 2, and could have combined tables for us, or allowed us to squeeze around a smaller table, which I offered.

I understand it's only an estimate, but the time was double what they quoted. We ended up eating somewhere else after waiting 90 minutes.

“Breakfast experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Upon entering the restaurant an employee in the distance yelled ''wait to be seated' which was rude. We sat out front and food was left on the floor from previous diners, tables were not cleared for 20 minutes so that was what we had to look at during breakfast. The bar had three diners who left after having breakfast and their dishes and leftover food was not removed for about 20 minutes as well. Food was okay. and our waiter was very nice.

“Great Food and Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

I recently brought 9 colleagues from MA, CT, MN and Ireland to the Blue Lobster Grille for dinner. There were 10 of us and they were very accommodating. A few of us wanted to experience more than one meal so we got half of the Lobster BLT on sourdough and half of the Seafood Linguini both on separate serving plates. AND they were both delicious. We had a great view of Motif #1 and our waitress was very attentive and pleasant.
