We hoped to go and have a lobster dinner but it was all done unfortunately. We did have lobster in a lobster roll and in the seafood chowder which was excellent. The cod was very good

The location is breathtakingly beautuful and the homemade food wonderful. We both had the cod fish cakes with a house salad and a side of "real" fries. Everything was fresh and delicious. The service was excellent and warm. Wish we had left room for dessert.
