We dined here as a large group; those of us who had lobster really enjoyed it. They held back lobster for us, as we were past the season and they were low on supplies.

Great lobster, great service and a wonderful view over the water. We had the lobster, of course, which was excellent. It is cash only which came as a surprise to us - be sure to hit the ATM before coming. Our only quibble was that we had to pay an additional $1.50 for the garlic butter, but the prices are... More

My family and I stopped here for dinner only days ago. The food was absolutley fantastic. The service was friendly and fast and the scenery was incredible. We highly recommend stopping in at this hidden gem. The seafood chowder and mussels were delicious.

Great server/service, amazing lobster. A very down to earth cozy little place. I would go back any time. The kind a place I m looking for. My only down part is you get charge for garlic butter, that should not by an extra when buying a $50.00 lobster.

We had a magical evening here, with great food, a lovely ambiance, and friendly staff. The restaurant is located on the dock in a small community. It offers lots of seafood but the focus is on the lobster so we pushed the boat out (!) and ordered two lobster dinners. Not cheap but so worth it. The kids (7 &... More

We arrived at our Twillingate B&B later in the evening and were immediately interested in finding a spot for dinner. Our host recommended Sansome's without hesitation, even though it meant driving for another 15 minutes or so to get there. Boy, are we ever glad we mustered up the energy to take his advice. First, I will tell you that... More
