Fun and kitschy environment with delicious food. Low key and very laid back and casual. I would highly recommend after going to Raaka chocolate for a tour and tasting!

Went on a Tuesday for lunch and the place was not busy. Friendly and efficient service. The Classic Lobster Roll was delicious -- overflowing with large pieces of fresh lobster meat. The accompanying fries and coleslaw were also excellent. But $25??
