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 $50, but you won't leave hungry after a 1¼-pound lobster with coleslaw, potato, chowder, and mussels or clams. Whether you choose indoor or deck seating, you can watch the activity on the water as people check lobster pots and kayakers fan across the bay.

Fodorite Reviews

Average Rating

Gone Downhill

Went here based on "Fodor's Choice" review and regretted it. This place must have gone downhill since you rated it. Dreary, dated and drab decor, and dingy (less than clean). Fairly empty at lunch and resentful, unhelpful staff. Food was mediocre at best and bordered on bad. Skip it - there are other options very nearby.
