Delicious food with excellent views over the water. Plenty of parking. Gets busy at peak hours but plenty of staff that is pleasant and courteous. Great menu with plenty of options. After dinner a short walk to view the nubble lighthouse as well. Or drive...More

We come every year in June, but this year we came a 2nd time in October. The lobster roll is fantastic--plenty of meat and tender. We also get the lobster bisque which is thick and flavorful with small bits of lobster in it and we...More

The view is incredible and the food’s not bad! The baked haddock was great. Lobster bites were less than wonderful. Service was just okay. But the view was worth the price of the meal!

Stopped by for a light snack. Enjoyed the view but their chowders are disappointing. Wife had "Fish Chowder". I had "Clam Chowder". Both were best named "Potato Chowder"

Started out with the Lighthouse Keepers Tea. Had Shrimp Cocktail and then Lobster Bisque. Finished with the Baked Lobster Crazy Crumb Pie. All good! Took home the My Oh My Mile High Banana Cream Pie. To die for!

Just tables. Dinner is hectic - I'd vote for a late lunch, if you can.
