Fodor's Review

What began as a lobster shack on Bailey's Island in 1955 has grown into a huge, internationally famous family-style restaurant with a small gift shop. The restaurant still catches its own seafood, so you can count on the lobster casserole and the haddock sandwich to be delectable. A shore dinner will still set you back close to $40, but you won't leave hungry after a 1¼-pound lobster with coleslaw, potato, chowder, and mussels or clams. Whether you choose inside or deck seating, you can watch the activity on the water as men check lobster pots and kayakers fan across the bay.
