Terrific seafood in this casual and friendly setting. The clam chowder was delicious, and not gooey and overly thick like many places. We had the baked haddock and loved it-- sides were generous and delicious! Wonderful home made rolls, and delicious blueberry pie, too. The...More

A simple search engine inquiry will get you more information. I've been vacationing in Maine for 30 years - and this is and always has been my favorite. Simple home made seafood and other entrees. Owner/Operator (Ruth) is renowned for her fresh baked rolls and Blueberry Pie. Reviewed by Coastal Living a few years ago.
