We wanted to have some sea food, so we stopped here. The lobster rolls were incredible. Not cheap at $19, but incredibly tasty with lots of lobster meat in it. Wwell worth the trip.

Stopped by for a quick lunch, the lobster roll was incredible. The fish tacos were de-lish. When we returned to our apartment we read several reviews, they were spot on. The lobster truly is wonderful.

Don’t be put off by the sight of this roadside place. The seafood is very good and it is a fun place to go with a group of friends. I had a cup of chowder and broiled fish. I will come back
