Thank you so much. We are glad you loved your experience. Sometimes it takes altitle longer for our food to come out because of the fresh products that we use. We have live lobster tanks, where the lobsters stay until it is time to cook....More

Soft and hard shell lobster and yummy fried sides. We had the small ice cream, but it was huge and cheap! Staff was friendly. This is a casual, order at the counter, restaurant with picnic tables outside or inside seating.
