Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal...no complaints. Pricey, but good value. It was stormy so we sat inside. We loved the 3 dessert combo which we shared.

Lobster prices were high, but the menu explained that Maine lobsters were pricy. The entrees looked good. I opted for the swordfish, which was outstanding. The service was efficient, and the ambiance was pleasant. There is an outdoor patio for seating. I would go back.
