My colleague had the lobster sandwich and was amazed at how much lobster it was filled with and how fresh. I myself had the scallops and I have never tasted anything that tasted so fresh. Right on the harbor family friendly but its the food!!!

Recommend calling ahead if in a rush. The lines are pretty long during summer peak hours. Hope this was helpful.
