Great spot out on the pier. Especially for sunset. Oysters here are super fresh. Wonderful chowder. Butter poached lobster is to die for. Mussels, of course, and a great drink make it lovely night.

This charmingly rustic restaurant is ideally located on the shore in Rockland, Our server was a true star. Our food was good but not great. Prices were reasonable. I probably won't rush back to this restaurant.

All I'm going to say in this review is that the crab BLT (with avocado) I had off the lunch specials today was one of the best sandwiches I've had in a loooong time!!
