We drove by Charlotte's a couple of times before stopping for dinner. The staff was super friendly - even insisting we sample Maine's "Moxie" cola while waiting in line. We enjoyed the seafood basket (clams, shrimp, haddock, etc.) on the picnic tables out front. The...More

The lobster and crab rolls were fine, but the ambience is outstanding. All outdoors, with lots of fun decor, beanbag toss, waterguns for play, and even a goat to visit.

We stopped here for lunch one day on the way back to the Seawall campground. The food was good, and the service was great! It is a little pricy, but so is every other seafood place in Maine. The clam chowder was fantastic. Don't forget...More

Ate there twice and loved it both times. Delicious burger and even better halibut sandwich. Fries are very good. Picnic tables for eating. Chairs around a wood fire for waiting. People are really nice. And you can visit a darling goat out back.

Good lobster, good attitude, good service and down home. We talked to Charlotte who told us her story and that was neat. She opened under her boyfriend's name but changed it to hers when he was no longer!! It is a bit off the beaten...More
