We were craving some seafood and looked at reviews. Reviews were great, the restaurant was close. They did not disappoint. Such friendly service and very delicious food. The New England tacos and Lobster Bisque were great.

Stopped in tonight for some chowder and lobstah rolls. Everything was fresh and delicious. Perfect portions, a welcoming cozy atmosphere, friendly staff, and high-quality food. Couldn't ask for a better local place!

So glad this place is in my neighborhood. Tried the lobster bisque. Huge chunks of lobster added just before serving so lobster is warm, but not over cooked. I kept half for the next day and it was still outstanding. Seeing the size and beauty...More
