Very expensive and don’t waste your time on the tour, the only lobsters to be seen were the display ones showing sizing.

Cheap eats and opportunity to see live lobsters. Fine to visit if you combine with other sightseeing else be disappointed.

Not really but it depends. If on a weekdays, should not pose a problem.Weekends? I guess reservation would be wise for a big group.
