We visited with two of our children and several grandchildren. The lobster and trimmings were fresh and well prepared. We are at outdoor picnic tables overlooking the Maine coast. It was a blast for all of us, even those who preferred something other than lobster and clam chowder. Yea, they do offer hotdogs.

I went to Bayley's today for a cooked lobster. I can afford lobster about twice a year. I got to the counter and gave my name and said I ordered a jumbo lobster and the man waiting on me said he would order it. It was a little noisy being very busy so he did not hear me say I... More

Pros : Sitting on the dock and eating was very nice. The restaurant seemed clean and the service person behind the counter was good. Cons: Poor Selection on menu. The lobster was ok but not the best. The corn that came with the meal was overcooked and tough. I had ribs and they were average at best. The prices were... More

Sorry, Bayley's but this was by far the worst lobster I have ever had. In addition, the location is inconvenient if you're just passing through. There are hundreds of lobster shacks along the roads of New England. Pick one and move on rather than honing in on this one. If you're heading to Cape Cod, try Moby Dick's. The lobster... More

We love going to Bayley's at Pine Point! We buy lobster meat, shrimp, lobster bisque, clam chowder, lobsters, and slaw here! Oh - and the cocktail cause is delicious! I call and order ahead when we are at the beach or just drop by and wait on the line. It's well worth the wait!

Bayley's Lobster Pound is by far the most disgusting restaurant we stopped at on our vacation in Maine. Even the bathrooms were not fit for use. The cashier freely admitted that ALL of their lobsters served at the pound are pre-cooked so that the customers don't get mad waiting for their food. They only have 1 to 1-1/4 pound lobsters....

If you want fresh from the ocean to your plate with no middlemen, then Bayley's is the place. I have been vacationing in Maine at Pine Point for over 20 years and ordering cooked lobsters and chowder for pickup at Bayley's for dinner is a staple of our vacation. Additionally, the shrimp rolls for lunch are fantastic. They now also... More

We went to Bayleys to pick up a few Lobsters for dinner. While they required 20 minutes or so for cooking these, we took a walk behind the seafood store. To our surprise we found a pier with picnic tables where people were enjoying their casual meal, while seated in a very serene and peaceful setting. There is a casual... More

Looking for great lobster in Scarborough or Old Orchard? The lobsters at Bayley's are the best around. You can call them in and they will cook them for you. They often have some cooked already to go. Also they make a great lobster roll as well.
