This is a summer place April to October and has a fantastic Ice Cream section with ice cream from Richardson's dairy in Middleton MA. The Fish chowder is our favorite item and is a tasty light broth with loads of fish.

I am not a fan of seafood, but my husband and friends love the Seafood here. Today I have a cheeseburger and fries. The food is hot, fresh, and fabulous. Don't miss their ice cream if you visit!

Ordered the double lobster rolls and haddock chowders. Could not believe the amount of lobster they stuffed into the hot dog rolls. No fillers like lettuce either. The haddock chowders was hot and full of fish, a meal in itself. Will be back for more lobster.

We've enjoyed the seafood offerd by many of the restaurants in Maine. Ted's fried scallops are the best we've had. And the ice cream is great as well.

Rude staff , Tough seafood clams seemed to be cut or shredded to make them look like more. Parking lot was packed so we thought it would be good. Second worse clams ever eaten in the state of Maine.

We have been taking our family here for family dinners for over 30 years. The seafood is delicious and they have other selections which suites everyone. We got there early today and everyone else had the same idea and it was packed. Outside several antique cars were parked which thrilled my grandchildren.
