Enjoyed lunch while we waited for the whale watching tour. We ordered the scallop Caesar salad, the lobster roll, and the haddock burger. Everyone loved their meals. Great friendly service.

Great lobster roll for me and grilled cheese for my daughter while we waited for our whale watch tour to depart. Lobster was tasty and extremely plentiful. Very friendly folks working there, too.

This is a small cafe located where you buy your tickets for the whale watching excursion. There is not a great a selection on the menu but if you are looking a quick bite before heading out whale watching this is the only show in...More
