I went here because we are moving to the area and I work in the hospitality business and wanted to recommend this to guests. The service is just awful. The waitress was overwhelmed with only 3 tables and me. I had to get my own menu. Had waited 15 min and had to ask what was on tap. I ordered... More

We each had the baked stuffed haddock. It we delicious. The best in the Valley! I recommend this restaurant based on these meals alone because if these were this good, the others must be equally amazing. Bon appetite!

We weren't going to go there but read the menu And it had warm lobster roll. We just did the hike at Diana's baths and it was on the way back to the place. My husband had the lobster scampi. We were both pleased with our choices . Unfortunately , there was no room for dessert.

My wife and I were very disappointed. We're from Maine and the lobster tasted weird. Slow service too.

You only have 1 review ? I doubt you ate here as you didn't describe anything and our lobsters are living and fresh in our lobster tanks. It would only taste weird if it was over cooked and if your from Maine you should be able to tell that was the reason if it tasted weird. What restaraunt do you... More

I think this is THE best restaurant in N Conway. It is off the beaten path and worth coming off the main drag to eat. Lobster scampi and clam chowder are my favorites. Apple crisp to follow. Very, Very good. Great service. You have to eat here if you are in the area. It won't disappoint!!!!

Ask for Bill as your server. Not in the main part of town, but a great place. Emphasis on seafood, but had a decent steak. Nice bar area, place is bigger than you think it is.

This is a true family restaurant owned by local people. Great people and great food, they always aim to please and are always happy to host an event for you. The prices are reasonable and the staff is always attentive and friendly. I would certainly recommend.
