Very good clam chowder - just a quick lunch in mid afternoon. Be prepared to park a few blocks away as you have to pay to park everywhere in Old Orchard Beach.

Great service. Had the best Lobster Roll I've ever had! We went there off season but they had the front area blocked off with curtains and heaters - was a short walk from our hotel. Really nice Maine seafood place! Would definitely go again.
