Pretty decent place for very casual lunch or dinner. The option to have lobster roll with or without mayo was nice, though not advertised (I asked if it was with mayo they said yes but then said, but we can do it without). The whales...More

Our annual trip to Sawyer's once again included an order of lobster bisque, which we have enjoyed in the past. Once again, it had lots of large pieces of lobster. But this year, it was very thick, and not in a very good way -...More

As usual this place remains consistently good. Had lunch with the family there on Monday and we all enjoyed. I really like the fried scallops and shrimp and my kids like the burgers.
