Very basic looking fish market, but don't let that put you off. We stopped here for lunch as recommended by a friend. The clam chowder is the best I've tasted and the hot lobster roll was delicious. It was great to sit outside eat lunch...More

They cooked our lobster, cracked it, and we took it home including sauce and coleslaw. The bisque is very good with big chunks of lobster in it.

We love the idea that you can sample the soups before ordering them! The new England chowder is so delicious! The lobster is wonderful too! Any size you want and they cook it for you and you can take it outside to enjoy. Amazing view!

The lobster bisque was superb and the lobster quesadilla was very good. Friendly staff. Better for take out - not a lot of seating and the beach is close.

Make like a local and head to the fish market before sunset to get your lobster roll or even whole lobster to eat on the beach as the sun sets - just wonderful and so memorable.
