Luxe it's not, but who cares? We always stop in for lobster rolls on our annual visits to the area. Our friends who live on Plum Island stop in to pick up containers of the local ice cream to take home.

We buy our lobsters from them and have other summer meals there. Very good food! They make their own seafood chowder and buy the clam chowder. They also make a lobster+corn chowder which is my favorite.

I don't know if there are any electrical outlets. The inside seating area is rather small. You could try calling them. Here is their number: 978-465-7100
