The service was good, butternut squash was good. The lobster bisque excellent but the clam with the bellies was dry and chewy. I thought their prices were a bit high compared to other restaurants. They only have a few handicap spots for parking.

This family-oriented, diner-style eatery offers up basic meat-and-potatoes fare. The fish & chips, burgers, steak tips, and pot roast are inoffensive, but entirely forgettable. We would've been okay with this if not for the unusually high prices ($17.99 for an average-sized fish & chips plate;...More

Lindsey's prides itself on always purchasing the freshest fish from local fishermen. A bad filet of haddock is NEVER acceptable! Please come back and we'll be happy to serve you what most enjoy as the freshest seafood around. This one's on us!
