Read a lot of good reviews about this place and thought i’d give it a try! Lobster roll is to die for! Staff quite friendly and welcoming. Food is served by the chef himself! Awesome! Try some oysters as a starter :)

We arrived just after 6 pm. The restaurant does not take reservations but if you wait (outside) or go have a drink somewhere else they will call you. Because we did not have a local phone number - one our group waited and we came...More
