I thoroughly enjoyed my first east coast lobster experience here. Go during happy hour for a good discount on drinks. Our waiter was phenomenal!

I didn't know what to order and the waiter said that the haddock was very fresh, days catch, so I decided to try it. A good decision as it probably was one of the best haddock's that I've had ever. The restaurant is rich in atmosphere and the staff is friendly.

The patrons ranged from business people to students and the staff was attentive. We had the flavorful soup of the day, a carrot, ginger, apple purée and... More
