We received a recommendation from our hotel and this place didn’t disappoint. Allyson, our waitress, was so nice and provided excellent service and recommendations on food options. We had the Hash Bennie, Lobster Rockport (morning special that was like lobster biscuits and gravy), and chocolate chip coconut pancakes. All were wonderful and filling! The only miss was that there seemed to be quite a few flys in the restaurant, which were a bit bothersome. Other than that, we would highly recommend this place for breakfast.

Low key diner feel to the restaurant. Food and service were good. The bar tender even showed me the proper way to get the meat out of the lobster tail without too much mess. I had the twin lobster special for $24.95 and it came with red potatoes, a roll and corn on the cob. Definitely a good deal!

Nicely located at the waterfront. Don’t expect a fancy place. It is simple and basic. The lobster was lovely and cheap. Two lobsters for a bit less than 25 dollars. It was served with potatoes, corn and a roll. If you want to share you need to pay an additional 5 dollars for the extra plate. The lobster was delicious. One of them was not that fresh, but they just gave us a new one as compensation without any hassle. Great service.

This is the quintessential Maine hang out place. Live music, Great seafood on picnic tables and a view of the harbor. The service is very friendly and welcoming. I was amazed at the very pregnant waitress who handled a lot and walked pretty much the whole harbor servicing everyone. Great value and your most wanted summer seafood treats. A MUST when in OLD PORT.

We didn’t even know what a lobster roll was until we visited this place, but on the recommendation of my sister and her husband, who had been there before, We tried it. Absolutely amazing and unique taste. All the best of having a lobster, without the work, because the lobster meat is served in a freshly baked roll. Most amazing and unique taste! The other nice thing about this place was a plate of two full size lobsters for the incredible price of $24 Canadian. Enough there for my sister and I to split one, but instead of paying for an extra plate, I simply ordered a salad and took one of her lobsters. Great lobster meal for cheap!
