  • Every item we had was terrific, but I found their clam chowder, NE Cheese sampler and butterscotch bread pudding all especially great! Service was top notch as well.
  • Top menu choices: Steak Frittes, Salmon & gnocchi, the burger (hands down the best burger I've ever had) & the lobster mac & cheese. Also cran-apple crisp and berries & dark choc are awesome desserts.
  • Amazing bread pudding
  • If you want to have the perfect meal that I would have over and over again, order the crispy Brussels sprouts, the crispy duck and spinach salad, bread pudding and a nice bottle of Sauvignon blanc.

  • Clear broth chowder is salty, but delicious. Lobster BLT makes a great lunch.
