Thanks for the feedback! Yes, it has been busy, we are seasonal and many of our staff members are students so we are not fully staffed until they are home for the summer. So don't fret, as the season gears up, so will our staff!

When you are in Maine you have to eat lobster. Lobster Cove is a great little place to accomplish this mission. It is a quaint place with a great atmosphere and stellar views of the ocean. Can't go wrong stopping in!

Sorry to hear about the delayed service. We are at the time of year that staff is slim, being seasonal, we rely on college students to staff the restaurant and they are not yet available. Thank you for your patience!
