The best tasting lobster... I had the grilled lobster with warm butter sauce and it was superb! The baked potato was very tasty. Service was great and staff was very friendly!

We had our first Maine Lobster here and were not disappointed. Our waitress Jeanie was kind enough to explain how to crack and eat it. Delicious! Great place on the water with good food.

We had wonderful large lobsters one night, complete with instructions. Like 2 that weighed about 1.2 pounds each. Nothing better. We returned and had crab cakes - ugh, not tasty at all and little discernable crab. The blueberry pie helped, but it's a large kind...More
