Kinda dingey lobster shack, no frills, nothing fancy, and a bit of that New England Attitude. The view from dining deck is alright with some ocean views. Fresh boiled lobster and the fried seafood combo were excellent. I would suggest you plan your ordering as there are three different stations to order what you would like. Order anything that requires boiling first (I.E. Lobsters, clams, etc.), than your fried stuff, soups, and finally beverages.  There is an ATM available inside, as they only take cash. They are famous for their lobster roll rivalry with Brown's across the street. I've had my share of lobster rolls and although this was the text book definition, it wasnt very exciting. Alittle lobster, alittle mayo, and a toasted bun is all you need. I have no plans on stopping back unfortunately.  Stopping here during a road trip from Cape Cod to Maine, I can honestly say the beaches of NH are depressing and run down in comparison to their neighbors. Now I know why no one talks about New Hampshire Beaches. But if you find yourself in this deserted wasteland and need mediocre seafood Markey's is the place to go.

SoNo Baking is located in Norwalk, very close to the aquarium and Stepping Stones. It is in a pretty nice area down by the water.  It was very clean inside with plenty of pastries and breads to select from. We got and few pastries and a sandwich to go.  Everything was good but no reason to go back. I do suggest going to Stepping Stones Children Museum if you have children. SoNo Baking was on the Cooking Channel for their fruit focaccia.
