This is a "lobster shack" for sure. You can sit outside and watch the lobster boats come in and unload. Nothing fancy but great fresh lobsters. Eat outside or inside. Loved it!

Four of us waited outside this packed place for a table and it was worth the forty minute wait! Dinner was divine...lobster rolls, cole slaw and fries! This is a tiny place with seating inside and out and the fisherman bringing in the catch.

LOVED it here! A small place, with great dishes. Huge portions! The prices were incredible, very affordable for the amount they give. Happy to know this is a Fishermans Co-op .

I was told about this gem by a friend at work. I understand why she enjoys the location and the food. We arrived around 6PM and we're seated right away. We sat outside, by our choice, not sure if we would have been able to...More
