If you like fried seafood, this is your place. Completely friendly place for enjoying fresh Maine seafood. The steamers appetizer is huge but so delicious- yum!

We were in Maine, and by God I was going to have a lobster roll every day. EVERY DAY! Well, this lobster roll was one of the best. Kind of a hole-in-the-wall type of place. So good, we went twice!

We've eaten here multiple times over the past several years and have always had a great meal. Primarily deep fried seafood but it is always light. We brought visiting family this year and they raved too. A got-to-go when in the area.

The only way you would know for sure is to ask the restaurant what they put in their chowder. Generally speaking, clam chowder does not have those, but why chance it?
