The place was packed on arrival and we weren't even approached about getting a table which was poor, but we grabbed a seat at the bar and got food and drink quickly there. Food was decent, lack of vegetarian options isn't great, but that's true...More

We had a group of (5) couples and all enjoyed their meals. Lobster scampi, whole lobster and lobster rolls were all excellent

I'm not really sure. If you can eat steamed lobster or ask for the haddock prepared plain with some lemon juice. They always have a fresh vegetable and you can order salad as a second vegetable. I would think you could find... More
