This was by far the best lobster roll I have ever had. Yes, we had to wait on a line on the side of a road in the heat, but it was worth it. Great portion of lobster. You cannot even pick it up and...More

We had to check this place out because every time we passed it, there was a line. Would it live up to the hype? We stood in line for about 40 or so minutes and ordered lobster rolls. We dropped about $90 bucks on lunch...More

How can you beat a lobster roll with no filler and the equivalent of a 1 1/2 pound lobster. Hot dogs were great too and they will add anything to them you ask for. Would love to go back.

Wow, can’t say anything but good things about the food. We had the lobster roll which was excellent and huge. Also had the Haddock sandwich with lettuce/tomato which was equally good. Onion rings had a very thick tempura-like batter if you like it that way....More
