Having tried several restaurants in and around Northeast Harbour, I consider this one to be the best lobster trap around without any doubt. The place is very simple, but they do serve great lobsters perfectly cooked and most tasteful. You can personally pick up the size you want at your discretion, and just enjoy it. Besides, they also serve a... More

I don't like change but do really like organic food, supporting local farms and grass fed cage free meat so was glad to see these changes at a place that our family has patronized for close to 40 years. But I had to pick through the greens to get the rotten lettuce out and the wait person was new the... More

All the food we had was very good. However, $6.99 for a very small sized portion of sweet potato fries and $3.95 for a tiny scoop of icecream is simply a rip-off. The price for the lobster also was on the higher end. Service was friendly but chaotic.

If you are looking for a fancy place, this is not it. But if you are looking for a local place with excellent food, this is your spot. We had clam rolls, and they were simply outstanding. The service was very friendly and attentive.

I have been visiting Bermuda on and off for 22 years, this place gives a sense of home for everyone! I think the problem I see with some reviews is possibly a different expectation for different backgrounds If you want a pleasant atmosphere and reasonably priced drinks, this is the place And the sliders are lovely!

My wife and I had grilled haddock and hamburger, respectively. Both were badly overcooked. I ordered hamburger medium (with pink center) ...it was served to VERY WELL done. Waitress was nice enough to apologize but refused to give ANY credit for the $11 hamburger. Then, the owner came out and was so terribly rude. She threatened to call the police... More

We had the best lobster roll ever here, just lobster, no salad, toasted bun. Been all over and had many before, but this was the best ever, what more to say, stop by and try one, just up the road from the visitor centre.

Docksider has been there for years and is a good simple restaurant. Good food and close to town and harbor. So you can come by boat. Nothing fancy about Docksider, good food and friendly people

We went there because the place looked cute. We had the typical lobster roll (2) with grease awful sweet potato fries, an extra corn and two drinks. We paid 60.00 US when usually you pay $14.00 for a lobster roll with a side. No going back
