    The shared appetizer - steamed clams - was reeking. We should have sent it back, but instead stopped eating them. The main courses were skimpy with revolting steamed, tasteless vegetables. The noise level was fine when we were the only table in the room; however, when it filled up, we ended up screaming at each other. Overpriced and underwhelming. The only positive was that our server had the courtesy to leave the plates on the table until the last person finished her meal.

    This was our first time but will not be our last. The service was excellent and the food fantastic. It is expensive so not something we would do every week but definitely worth the occasional night out.

    This place has been here for years, and the ambiance looks it. Could use a face lift. Menu looked as ancient as the place is. My husband said his libster was unimpressive and overcooked. Side dish choices are a limited. Surprised that they still charge extra if you want Blue Cheese Dressing. Had to send back my Martini to be remade. Wait staff was pleasent and attentive.

    An early celebration for my son's birthday. Promised him the best lobster he ever had and did not disappoint. Requested table change and was immediately accommodated. A bit rushed service at first but the place filled up quickly and we had a leisurely decadent dinner and desert. Go directly for the lobster - 1 1/2 pound perfect size to satisfy mom and son (his 30th) and just enough room left for desert. He had the chocolate moose and I had the key lime pie. My son was visiting from DC and I promised him a great time and this was the highlight of the four days he was here. Can't wait till my other son and his fiance visit from NY. We already know where we will go for dinner.

    My wife took me here for my birthday. We have been here before and normally love it. This time around I ordered the crab meat stuffed shrimp. It could be the worst stuffed shrimp I have ever had as it was the most bland tasting shrimp I have ever had, almost as though there was not an ounce of spice on the dish. My wife had a shrimp pasta and here shrimp was extremely rubbery. That being said, the service was great as was the ambiance.

    Station House is great for what it is - a lobster house. If you want lobster in any size and style - this is the place for you. If you want fine dining - go somewhere else, and don't complain. The fried calamari is the best around! And to those who complain the prices are too high -don't show up during prime time and expect not to pay prime time prices. When we want lobster, we get there early and get the best price - have never been disappointed and we keep going back.

    While I understood it was a fish house and well known for its lobster, we were disappointed with the food. The server was nice and service was good but he seemed annoyed that we had questions about the menu. Go early for the place seems to close up around nine. Our dinner was later and they started running the vacuum when we were still finishing our cocktail. If you're used to fine dining, this isn't a place where you'll feel at home.

    This was our first visit to the charming converted station house. The staff were all very attentive without being bothersome. We went for the early lobster special and thoroughly enjoyed it. The lobster bisque is some of the best we've ever had. So many interesting things to choose from on the menu. We were lucky enough to be seated next to the fish tanks. We will definitely return and recommend to friends.

    Station House has been a favorite of our family for whole Maine lobsters and special occassions for many many years. Was EXTREMELY SHOCKED that the lobsters that are always the BEST were the WORST EVER and a birthday cake preordered arrived AFTER THE CHECK with another check! We also waited for 20 minutes for the cake after telling the front desk that no dessert had arrived. Was celebrating a senior's 87 birthday and we were ALL disappointed this time!

    We had a wonderful dinner at Station House. Starting with the bread and brushetta tomato relish topping. We sat next to the fish tank which provoked a lot of great conversation. How often do you get to see starfish on the march? Our appetizers were enough for a meal but we didn't stop there and enjoyed both steak and seafood. We'll definitely return!
