“Delicious lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

I love this spot. The restaurant/ bar area sits out on the wharf and you walk through a processing area to enter the restaurant. We had one of the best lobster salads I've ever had. It contained avocado and a wasabi drizzle. Memorable. If you're lucky and it's not too crowded sit out on the deck right over the water, but most tables are near large glass windows so there is plenty of good viewing. Yes, it's a bit pricey, but the food is fresh and the ambience is quintessential casual New England harbor.

“Great spot for Lunch or Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

We had a wonderful dinner on the deck in June with a great view of the sunset. The next day, we enjoyed lunch at the bar and watched a World Cup soccer game. Food and service are excellent . Casual and very open.....inside is not much different than outside so bring a jacket in cooler weather.

“Tourist trap/WAY overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

I rated "poor" mainly because of the horrible service and overpriced menu. Yes, it's gorgeous to sit outside overlooking the water, but you sure do pay for that view. The steamers were outstanding, but $19??? wow. Our waitress was very young, and must have been her first job cause the service was terrible. I would not return to this place.

“Great view, delicious hot lobster roll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Watched a lobster boat pull up alongside the restaurant, full of lobsters which got brought immediately inside! How cool! Totally casual, great view on the water, watching sailboats, dinghies, and mega yachts go by... Hubby got a lobster dinner, I had lobster roll -- both great.

“Fantastic experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

This is awesome. It's right inside a huge football field length building filled with lobster tanks. You can get any size lobster you want. They're fresh right from the ocean and cooked to perfection. I got a 3 lb steamed beauty. Couldn't have asked for a better meal.
