The location is great but the $6.99 bowl of clam chowder was full of potatoes. We also had the fish sandwich. It had a small haddock fillet and lettuce.

I had the lobster salad that was tasty, flavorful, with not too much mayo mixed in. It was delicious but I wanted a larger portion for the price. Even the garden salad was small. My partner felt the same about the fried clams. He thought...More

I don't know if there are any electrical outlets. The inside seating area is rather small. You could try calling them. Here is their number: 978-465-7100
