Many of our customers tell us that they wish they had found us on their first day of vacation instead of their last.
Our waterfront view, being able to buy larger lobsters and our homemade Blueberry Pie are the three top reasons people visit us for the first time.
That and our wonderful staff, made up of locals who love to serve, is the reason they come back again. Make sure to stop in when you arrive!
