Seaside Views and Food Wonderful restaurant, wonderful wait staff. Went for breakfast (waffles, eggs Benedict, ) and dinner. Very well done. View is dramatic. It was our second year with a little family reunion. They took wonderful care of us.

We had lunch here. The Clam Chowder was superb, Haddock was fantastic, even the drinks were delicious... overall we loved this place. We ate on the second floor and it offers perfect views of the ocean.

We live nearby, so it's easy for us to take advantage of this restaurant. They have an awesome breakfast menu too. Lobster Benedict is our favorite. When we have guests at our house we always find time for Lobster Cove
