Had a super lunch on the deck looking at the ferry and just had a great time. The service was friendly and they did not rush us at all. A good fish sandwich and some excellent lobster. Just a fun all around experience.

Part of bus tour of 42 people during noon hour lunch, one week before seasonal hour closings. Limited seating at this time, but worth the wait for lobster roll, which were huge. Moderate price, quality service, friendly waitresses.

Seated outdoors but sheltered in good weather this visit certainly worthwhile.Seafood lunch for a group of 4 each with their favorite was certainly no problem from the detailed menu.Service was friendly and efficient.

I think they take reservations if you call- it might be party of 6 or more. It usually not a long wait.
