We ate dinner last week and the food and service were outstanding. Both had lazy man's lobster, which is the only way to eat lobster, no mess, and it was wonderful. We had a waitress that was fantastic and would highly recommend this place.

My wife and I shared a 5 pound lobster and loved it. We came back a few days later for another excellent dinner (not lobster the second time). Food, service and atmosphere made us feel very comfortable. Prices were fair. Great location on Route 28

I expected a bit more, to be honest, given reviews. I was seated right away and immediately received the menu and water but then Claudia, my server, seemed to forget I was there. Took her a while to get back to me to take my...More

No one pays me to write a review. I do it so others can see where I have eaten and give them my impression. I did neither use the men's room here nor did I have dirty silverware.
