This is a small restaurant, and food is served fast food style with paper dinnerware. But in spite of that the lobster roll and clam chowder were tasty, and the prices were reasonable because you do go to the counter and order fast food style....More

Great food, friendly staff and fish caught from Sustainable, traceable stocks. They even have tap water in their fridge rather than overpriced bottled water flown in from half way round the world. Prices seemed fine for seafood. Only one suggestion, is there a way that...More

The menu is pretty basic… I don't believe that there is a kids menu. They offer the basics lobster rolls, Chips and drinks. There are other restaurants close by if you're looking for something that might offer a kids menu.
