The worker was friendly and talkative. The place was way to expensive for a take away place. I would not go out if my way unless you are on the street already. I can't rate the place any better then a fast food place. Most senior citizens will not be able to afford the lobster roll or clams

The old guy was nice. I didn't like the chowder. Very watery and tasteless. Mini lobster roll was on a stale finger roll. Disappointing lobster too, watery and salty. They give it to you plain with a packet of generic mayonnaise. So sad.

We had family in for a wedding and they wanted to try lobster rolls, chowder, and blueberry pie. This place was perfect. Close to LLBean and shops, outside seating. Reasonable prices, great food!

Felt like chowder and saw The Freeport Chowder House. My husband got the lobster stew he wasn't thrilled with it (not seasoned enough and it only had two claw sections in it) but I had the seafood chowder and it was jam packed and seasoned nicely. People came in and ordered the lobster roll and they looked amazing.

This restaurant was the worst dining experience I've had in 20 plus years! My son and I got the lobster roll and clam chowder special. The lobster had gone bad and smelled fishy. It was a do it yourself lobster roll with the mayo on the side and two small pieces of lobster on a stale roll. The clam chowder... More

Expensive lobster served cold, not freshly prepared. Meals handed out at random, not in order of orders placed. Husband couldn't eat it.
