20.00 lobster roll warm or cold with mayo. View of the bay. Beer and wine. Charming. Authentic. No tipping. No up charges. Just fresh seafood.

Our food was delicious, but I felt like the food was a little overpriced for what it was. They have a nice deck to sit and eat your food, but it can get chilly at night!
