The waitress was very nice even when our toddler got a bit messy. The food was interesting (not your usual fare) and very delicious. For me, the best part was watching the boats and ships come down the river.

I have dined here several times however, I never ordered lobster only the crab cakes. The crab cakes are the best I have had in the region. I recommend you call the restaurant directly regarding your question. Happy Travels!
