Hadyn F: “This was such an awesome place to grab a bite to eat. The service was great and the restaurant was huge! Plenty of room for big groups. There’s also a lot of outdoor seating to you can take in the view of the water and sounds of passing boats and other put-in-bay attractions! I had the Lobster Poutine and it was to die for! Highly recommend it! Their mozzarella sticks we’re also very good!”

Tracey B: “Had great early dinner at the upstairs restaurant. Enjoyed the lobster bisque, very thick, rich and full of lobster. Also had king crab legs that were very meaty and tasty. Had a cosmo ( very nice not too sweet) a Bombay gin martini (mixed to perfection) a lime margarita (order it on the rocks not frozen, too thick to sip thru straw). All in all good experience including a great view watching the boats come and go. Was able to park our golf cart right up by the door. Had not been here in over 10 years and was not disappointed.”

Christine K: “We go back every year just for their lobster bisque, it is the best with huge chunks of fresh lobster in it, and has basically ruined me for all other lobster bisques. To sit by the water with a bowl of bisque and some Heineman’s wine is the perfect afternoon. We always go at off times, like mid-afternoon during the week, and it is rarely crowded. Looking forward to the next trip here”
