I had a nicely filled lobster roll/fries, while my hubby had pulled pork on a bun/fries, without the wiener, as that's how it comes. The lobster roll is the type where there isn't much dressing etc., so may not taste as good to some. The...More

Very good lobster roll. The food is served from a small hut and has rustic tables in the open. Nearly everyone has the lobster roll and it is very good. Not as good as they think it is but good nonetheless. The chips were average....More

This is a small French fry hut with excellent food. It looks unattractive but is clean and the food is great. It is a must stop on the waterfront if your are looking for something inexpensive and tasty for a lunch.

I found this restaurant very relaxing. It is outside so am not sure what happens in the winter if they have a indoor seating. The chips were excellent and the service was great. The prices were fine. They have large variety of chips.

Based on TA reviews, we tried the lobster roll on 10/23/2017. Price was $12 no adjustment for USD. It came on a toasted roll which was quite good, but the lobster was NOT. The meat appeared to be scraps from lobster picking. Very small texture...More
