This is the rare case that they give you so many strawberries in this shortcake, I couldn't eat them all.  Do not miss this fabulous dessert!

Sitting at one of the four counter seats allowed a great view into the kitchen and all the beautiful food being prepared.

Seafood stews in these parts mean a hot bowl of milk with seafood and a slick of butter.  Lightly seasoned.  Note the large sections of lobster in this terrific stew.

The lobster almost completely obscures the toasted bun below.  Lightly dressed, large chunks of meat; this is one excellent lobster roll.
