A great stop in SW Harbor! They have a diverse menu and for a change we went for Pizza rather than seafood. Lots of ways to get lobster but we chose the more usual pepperoni. It was quite good. The best we have had on...More

This is great place to grab a sandwich to take with you on a hike. The sandwiches and brownies were very good!

The place was busy and there seemed to be a fair mix of locals and tourists. I had a lobster roll and thought it to be pretty mediocre. The locals in the next table over had the lobster bisque and seemed to really enjoy it....More
