We had a great lunch here. The baked scallops were delicious as were the steamed lobsters. My son loved the steak with the reduced balsamic sauce. Would definitely eat here again when in the area.

I ate loberster here 31 years ago. Now I come back to Maine and have to eat here again. Verdict: Just as good as I remember. The haddock stuffed with lobster is fantastic. Service was a little slow. Love the simplicty of the place.

Used to be a regular stop when we came to the area because of the fabulous lobster stew. We thought we'd revisit after several years away. Ordered the lobster stew. Terrible! In the old version, butter swam on top of milky broth ambrosia and the...More
