We went for lunch. The menu had a variety of options and they will add lobster to practically any dish on the menu. The lobster roll was delicious with smoked paprika. Definitely worth a visit.

Enjoyed a casual dinner on the deck. 45 minute wait but we were able to find seats outside. Atmosphere was fun and we picked up some cool merchandise too.

Lobster stew, best I've ever had. Pub fries are light and seasoned with cracked pepper and sea salt. Fish sandwich was tasty and the blueberry pie was excellent. They serve local beers on tap. Very well done!

Great selection for lunch, a little crowded but not terrible. Lobster roll was very good, not too shredded. Mac and cheese was incredible.
