“Over priced!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

The lobster bisque was a great treat, but the lobster dinner was over priced. $28.95 for a lobster that was maybe a pound. Very disappointing.

“Best seafood around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

We discovered Saltwater Cowboy a few years ago, and now it is the only place we will go for great seafood at a reasonable price! Everything tastes great and the people working there are very friendly. Eat in or take out and the quality is still great.

“Great spot for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2013

Friendly counter service and super-fresh seafood. This place is an inland New England Clam Shack with all the expected offerings...and a great market if you prefer to cook at home. Highly recommend when you need your fish & chip fix.

“Great fresh seafood”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2013

Very casual atmosphere, nothing special inside, but the service is very good, and the seafood is prepared and cooked fresh. Nothing better within a 50 mile radius for fresh seafood!

“Lobster Mac & Cheese Not Their Best Offering”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2012

We've enjoyed their food many times, especially their fish and chips and fried clams. However, we recently tried their lobster mac & cheese and found it had too many herbs and too many bread crumbs, and was really too thick.

We've had mac and cheese many times, and have enjoyed lobster mac & cheese in Maine and elsewhere, too. You have to start with a nice, creamy mac and cheese that's not too thick, so you can taste the delicate flavor of the lobster. This was so "herby" there was no way you could taste the lobster, and even the cheese was almost covered up.

Most of their seafood is excellent. I hope they can work on this dish a bit to improve it.
