Why haven't I gone to this place sooner? Hands down the best margarita, stuffed mahogany clams, and lobster roll I have ever had. The roll seriously melts in your mouth. I'm not a raw oyster kinda gal but I dove in and tried them anyways...More

Octopus Terrine was a small plate special that ranked near the top of taste experiences. It was absolutely yummy. Along with the lobster roll and clam chowder, a beautiful lunch!

Awesome oysters, beer and lobster rolls for lunch. It was a beautiful day so we sat outside. There was a short wait for a table but it was well worth it.

I was trying to find their menu but it doesn't list their prices. We will be heading to Portland, ME next weekend and wanted to know, for a party of 8 (2 children included) if this would be ideal for lunch or dinner? And if we would be breaking the bank? How reasonable are the prices? Thanks for any help!!!!

I'm not sure this would work well for kids. It's a loud restaurant with banquet style seating. At first glance the menu doesn't seem too pricey but it is when you take into account the tiny size of the portions, which they... More
