Great find!
We found this place the first night we were in the area. They set the bar high! We shared a lobster and had fun learning how to crack the lobster for the meat. The lobster was good. The sides good as well. Blueberry pie to...go- well that was a treat later! Would highly recommend this restaurant.More ... read more

We got there at opening time. The service was fast, staff friendly and the outdoor seat was pleasant. Recommend you sit down by the water. It's a tidal river so if you time it right, you can see if come in or out quickly during your meal.

My new favorite place for lobster! Of course COVID-19 changed everything over the last several months so I didn't know what to expect. The ordering was seamless...we looked the menu up online and everyone knew what they wanted. We found a picnic table out on the lawn overlooking the beautiful Union River. We placed our order and ... read more

I was planning to visit airline brewing company but it was full and definitely didn't want to wait in the pouring rain. After searching Yelp, this place came up and I'm glad I checked it out. Very tasty hot butter roll! You don't want to miss out!

Enjoyed the fried seafood combo and especially the double portion lobster roll.

If you are eating outside on the lower lever, enjoy the river and don't forget to save a few French Fries for the ducks.

Loved sitting by the river to enjoy our food. Fish tacos, shrimp po'boy (special), and fried haddock were all exceptional. The open face blueberry pie was perfect--full of wild blueberries and not too sweet.

Great service! Generous portions, and at different pre-selected amounts. Varied drink selection and indoor and outdoor seating. You won't leave without reeking of clams, lobsters, mussels, chowder, and butter. In a good way! Sit on the water or on an Adirondack-style deck. You won't leave hungry or in a bad mood.

I walked in to get a blueberry pie but ended up getting the best fish tacos and crab sandwich I've tasted with the right quantity of creamy goodness and acidic zing. Glad I was curious!
