Smelled like Lysol and tables were sticky with Lysol. The smell was hard to get over while eating. Waiter didnt want to explain anything on menu. Waiter forgot one entree from our party. Had to wait … To end our evening , our waiter served a birthday desert on his head … completely unhygienic as hair landed on the plate. Probably thought it was cute, but honestly it was disgusting. Never again.

I also wrote a review on TripAdvisor :-) Our food beginning with the delicious Caesar salad and corn bread, was great.
We had the baked halibut which was very fresh and delicious and had a light herb crust on it.
The Jamaican staff was excellent, hard-working and very friendly!
I would highly recommend it. Prices are very reasonable, but it is not an intimate dining experience, it’s loud and lively :-)

We dined here before going to Ogunquit Theatre for a show. Had a reservation and was seated quickly. Our waiter was not friendly with us but seemed to be fine with other tables. We ordered oysters which were very good and a house salad that was very large. Could have shared with 2 people easily. One of us got fried chicken, which wasn’t really “fried” as much as it was strips off the bone. The menu should be more specific about that. 2 of us ordered the Scallops, which were very good and plentiful. 6 scallops on plate. Again, could have shared the meal. The other order was the salmon which was very good as well. Overall, a nice meal, I just wish the server would have been a bit more pleasant.

We went for lunch on a beautiful fall day and sat at a high top table near the bar. The bartender was personable and attentive. The service from all of the staff was great. The restaurant ambiance is very pretty inside and out. The bloody mary came with a large shrimp. We had oysters and steamed clams for appetizers and entrees of fish and chips and a lobster roll. We will definitely return.

We enjoy trying new restaurants. So here is a comment on a new restaurant.
Three of us ordered. I had the charred brussel sprouts, very good. I had the grilled scallops in a sauce excellent.
The other 2 ordered house salads which were excellent. But my son said the bucatini with clam sauce was way too spicy (too much red pepper). Husband had seafood newburg, also very spicy. So we love the restaurant but the food we found was uneven!

Pan-seared haddock was overdone and nearly inedible. Server was indifferent. May have been just an off day, but I would never try again.

A nice quiet start to our evening, but staff cannot manage where the loud diners get seated, so ours came with dessert. Our filet minion and jambalaya were terrific, but the big surprise was the salad with fresh veggies that exploded with flavor. The blueberry pie was disappointing, but the carrot cake saved that course.
We are very pleased to have found this place and we take good memories and maybe a few additional pounds back home with us.

Very good ambiance, but a bit noisy for intimate conversation what with all the hard interior surfaces. My oysters were excellent; the wedge salad was just right for sharing between the 2 of us; the dipping sauce for the calamari was a bit too spicy for us, but the preparation and quantity of the meat was just right; and the carrot cake was one of the best we’ve ever had. Our server was a very friendly Jamaican fellow from FL who was very upbeat, but sometimes difficult to understand. The Pinot Grigio was a food match for the oysters.

My wife and I heard good things about the food so we chose this for our anniversary dinner. Sadly we did not experience the same as what we heard. The oysters to start were excellent. Ordered a stuffed lobster and stuffed haddock for entrees. The menu said the stuffed lobster would add 25 minutes to the order. Completely understandable except it arrived in about 10 minutes. This would have been great except that the lobster looked like it was left over sitting in the heat lamps for 30 minutes and the potatoes in it were barely even cooked. The haddock stuffing had no flavor other then the herbs and way too much of them. Maybe we were just a one off but it was disappointing to say the least.

So glad to find a restaurant that took reservations!
Seated promptly, waiter was amazing, food was delicious.
Started with a very good bourbon drink, awesome Caesar salad - so large we shared-
1 1/2 pound lobsters - vegetable sides were a welcome addition. If we weren’t stuffed, the homemade blueberry pie topped with ice-cream would have ended our exemplary dining experience!
The Maine Catch was a terrific choice for our last vacation dinner.
