Always good! Every Thursday is fresh turkey day - anyway you want it. -- They have the best seafood chowder we have ever tasted. Pricey but worth it. Full of scallops and shrimp plus the usual.

Feel like some comfort food without having to heat up the kitchen? Block and Tackle is not fancy but you can get good old fashioned home cooking. You are paying for good food and no mark up for a view unlike some other Harpswell restaurants.
