Went with a group to eat seafood, was not disappointed! Outdoor seating, bring your own beverages. I suggest you bring your own utensils as well, and wet wipes! Ordered just about everything off the menu and it was cooked perfectly. Probably not a good place...More

Everything is grilled over a fire. Great for summer but a little cold any other time of year as it is entirely outdoors. Bring your own vegetables and such as there are only really meat and seafood options.

We have gone here a couple of times and have enjoyed it thoroughly. Make sure you come when it isnt too cold though :-) The food is outstanding. Its a fun time and a somewhat unique experience.

Outdoor eating sitting on tree stumps. BYOB and veggies. Open fire grilled salmon, chicken, corn and lobsters. A bit pricey for what you get but fun. If you're prudish not a place for you.

Phenomenally simple, yet AWESOME. Since 1971 The Place has been serving up a simple short menu - in a simple, cool outdoor spot. Wonderful #clams casino and #LOBSTER - make sure to bring in your own appetizers, munchies and drinks and it is just plain...More

Have you ever done or considered doing a small wedding there?
Is this a good place to go with the kids ( 3, 5 & 9 year olds) or is it an adults mainly?

Yes a very family friendly place.The kids will enjoy the log seating, watching the staff prepare and cook the food and just being outside in general.

I'll be passing through town with my dog. Are pets allowed or do they have food to go?

They have food to go. As far as pets go, I do not know. This is an outdoor restaurant. If your dog is quiet and calm, you might be ok. This is a very casual place.
