This is a smaller place with tables outside all with their own fire pit, a small bar and sit down area on the first floor and a larger bar and more seating upstairs. It is located right in the center of town, right across from the main LL Bean store. The Place will get busy at meals times and very... More

We stopped by for coffee and dessert. What a wonderful choice! Everything looked so good we could not decide on one so we shared 3 different ones and they were all amazing.

My oh MY!! Best corn chowder ever! Served with a biscuit and honey! Just enough for lunch on a cold day. I didn't get the pie but I saw it! The meringue was at least 6-8 inches tall!! No kidding!

First time visit last fall. This was the best lobster roll I have ever eaten. The place is very clean and comfortable, with tasty desserts and very reasonable prices, as well. Highly recommended.

Great service and atmosphere! I will definitely visit again on my next trip out east! I am a regular traveler to the east from Michigan and have been looking for a great lobster roll and clearly found it here!

Sparse lobster roll, poor service, good chowder, not worth the trip back again. A tourist trap of bad food trying to survive of it's name. I rather eat a bean boot it may have more flavor.

The service and food was great. It is a nice atmosphere and you can certainly talk and relax after so much shopping. The desserts, well they are amazing.

The moderate wait was worth it for a delicious lunch! Friendly staff, knowledgeable about the menu...able to answer our questions. All three meals were delicious! I had a salmon salad, and the house made dressing was very good! I'd order it again!

Had hoped for a bit better food and larger servings. The lobster mac and cheese had no taste at all and was quite small. perhaps we hit a bad day but the staff and service was also a bit haphazard

Good lobster stew, lots of lobster and flavor. Lobster roll was disappointing. Bun was dried out and burned tartar sauce and dill on the lobster was not good. Portions were generous, sweet potato fries were excellent.

Thank you for writing in about your experience at the restaurant! I'm so happy you loved the stew and sorry about your experience with my signature lobster roll. It should never be served with tarter sauce, so it's understandable that you wouldn't care for it. I hope next time you are in the area you might give it another try,... More
