Right on the wharf! Outside, upper deck dining. View of the harbor and sight seeing, pleasure and working lobster boats coming in and out.
Varied menu, not just seafood. This visit we got a dozen oysters on the half shell; Glidden’s Point and Pemaquids. Interesting piece of trivia for those of you from away, all the oysters up and down the east coast are the same species. The areas they are grown in and whether they are bottom grown or top grown are what make up their differences.
The Signature burger was cooked quite to my liking, med rare. Hand sliced chips are a great choice over the fries.
Wonderful service. Nicole was very pleasant and attentive.
Worth the visit.

Great meal on the deck. Whole Lobster and lobster roll with all the fixins. Hannah, our waitperson expertly cracked and then opened my wife's lobster for her while telling us about growing up in Maine and eating lobster weekly, at least. Fun story. Great food. Good beer and ice tea too.

WE stopped if for a cocktail and app and enjoyed great service and a friendly atmosphere. We sat on the upper deck and listened to the music playing on the lower deck. Very enjoyable.

we stopped in and had some of the best oysters ever - a dozen jumbo on the halfshell
and baby spinach salad with fried oysters. The fried oysters were just lightly breaded
and cooked to perfection, retaining all the fresh oyster flavor with none of the heaviness
and too much overcooked/crispy breading one is used to. They were, in a word,
perfect. As were the dozen jumbo raw oysters, and they were jumbo, and just as tender and sweet as you would want.
Looking forward to going back. The menu is extensive, to say the very least, with
many other seafood and non-seafood selections. Well worth stopping in.
