Good location, nice space. The chowder was a large serving and apparently tasted good, the Western was cool and soggy, the fish and chips were left unfinished - chips from a plastic bag and batter unpleasant. It could have been saved by decent service. One...More

Small restaurant with friendly service. We both had different chowders that were great. We split a lobster sandwich on a bun that had huge pieces of fresh lobster. The desserts were home made. A great place to have lunch.
