I had the lobster Ruben which was excellent. My wife had a well portioned lobster roll. Plenty of beers on tap all and all I recommend going. Only negative is that the dining room was cold so I dropped hem a star.

Great local hangout with a great menu! The bucket was my favorite - whole lobster 1 1/4 pound at least, couple pounds of clams, tasty linguisa (Portuguese sausage) and a vegetable to boot!

Although it is a very popular dining spot the food is just mediocre.A lot of locals along with tourists. Can be very crowded & noisy at dinner, best to go for lunch on the waterfront patio.
