As the title states, you must try the Lobster Crab Chowder as it is simply to die for. Also the bar specials are worth a try. Excellent and consistent food every time.

Excellent service with good local food. We shared steamers and they were delicious even though they were sandy. The entrees were well prepared and very enjoyable.

After reading several reviews we decided to give it a try. Best decision we made. We both got the two lobsters for $25 with sides. Lobster was great and the sides was wonderful. If you are in the area check these folks.
