Solid seafood joint, great food, great service. Enough said. I come back often. Great selection of lobster, scallops, steamers, etc... all the good stuff. Reasonable prices. The eating here is just benches, so i'm not sure i'd recommend it for eat in

Cute on the outside, that's why I stopped. Poor food, Fried Seafood was greasy and the Hamburger was overpriced for what I got. They need to work on quality.

Good lobster, eating outdoor, on a picnic table, no fuss, no waiting, fresh , also all the seafood you are expecting to find like shrimps, steamers, crab cakes etc.

The lobster chowder was hot and had a good flavor the same with the clam chowder. Fried whole belly clams are exactly what you would expect from a lobster shack. Next trip we'll try the lobster.

Excellent meal one lobster, corn and potatoes for $20. You eat outside in a nice picnic area. Fried food available too inside the building. Bring cash or you can get cash at the ATM there. They do not accept credit or debit cards.

This was our first time there and it was a nice alternative to a regular sit down restaurant. No frills and you could bring your own drinks. Nice picnic tables and a casual meal.

Stopped for lunch since Maine Diner nearby packed. We both had lobster rolls which were served without lettuce ( a good thing). Came with fries. Lobster rolls were good but a little pricey at $18.99. They have soda and beer or single serve wines. Small...More

do not waste your time. There are so many better places to eat. Their lobster is tasteless and not worth the money. You are in the state of endless lobster, go elsewhere.
