    Great to sit in the tables by the water (first come, first serve) to people watch as people come in on their boat. Diet coke and coconut rum= summer in a cup!

    Fun fact: In some states, adding mayo to lobster is a declaration of war. Spare the bloodshed and eat your Lobster Roll as it should be: on a bun, with butter

    This was my first visit. I was utterly surprised how great the fish tacos were. They have battered fries too which I love. Service was mediocre but the food made it worth it.

    Amazing lobster rolls!! The fries are nothing special, but the lobster makes up for it all.

    The lobster roll and lobster chowder are ALL you need (well...and a brew won't hurt)!

    When they have the crab, go get. Else the lobster. Nothing better than you, animal, claw crackers, beer and yachts. Keep it simple.

    Don't get it. Looks out over an industrial park, and feels like it's in an office park.

    Never come here with a large party. They will bring the manager out and MAKE you buy dinner even if you only want to share appetizers. Shame on them. $125 tip wasn't even acceptable for our service.

    Get drinks & sit by the water. Avoid the food unless it's fried. The seafood isn't fresh.

    I definitely just saw a drunk driver perform a hit and run in the parking lot. Sadly, I didn't get the license plate.
