Our Specialties

Enjoy lobster, steamers, lobster rolls, chowder, and a whole lot more in a friendly, casual atmosphere. Live lobsters are caught by local lobstermen and wait in tanks filled with ocean water pumped straight from Perkins Cove in Ogunquit, Maine. For all the taste without the work, have a lobster roll any way you like it; a quarter pound single, double stuffed, triple, or an entire pound on a buttery toasted roll with or without mayo. The lobster wrap and lobster BLT are new favorites. Our traditional, homemade New England chowder made from an old family recipe is a great way to start your meal. There’s no thickening flour, just the perfect combination of clams, haddock, potatoes, onions and spices in a milk and cream base.

Here is an interesting read about the history of New England Chowder…
