We actually said "let's get coffee "and dessert, after the weak coffee and a chocolate mousse cake you could crack a tooth on , my experience last night ruined my memories as a child. I will...

My husband has a seafood allergy, and be aware that anything fried in the restaurant is all fried in the same area (so... More

Great place for football in the bar. Lots of TV's. View of the ocean. Big menu. Plus the lottery and Keno if you are so inclined. There is also a restaurant side, but I've only been to the bar.

Saw some kite surfers and wanted to join them. This place is worth a trip if you are in Boston. The lobster roll was very fresh and with large pieces. Service 10/10.

My wife and I took relatives from Europe for the Lobster Roll which was highly recommended by my brother. It lived up to its promise. I've never had a lobster roll with so many tails! We also enjoyed the selection of local beers on the menu.
