Reliable place for buying seafood

Vacationed for a week in Bath and purcahsed seafood here twice based on locals recommendations. We heard it has been a tough lobster year yet they had a good selection of 1- 2 1/2 lb lobsters. We also purchased fresh halibut and swordfish for the grill, both were excellent. Spoke to the owner as... read more

A $26 fish clams and scallops plate was not cooked properly, maybe the oil wasn't hot enough. Piled on top of each other everything was soggy. Too bad, lots of good fish ruined. The fries and rings were from a bag. But the fish store has nice stuff.

I hear a drugstore chain bought the site and they will be no more! Buy lobster cooked to go! The haddock sandwiches are wonderful and so fresh. If you have to eat at the picnic tables, you will hear the traffic on route 1, but it is kind of rustic... OK for a family and very casual

They have great seafood very fresh. The staff is very mixed some are good others don't seem to care if you buy are not. I bought two lobster rolls it cost 32dollars I think that is expensive.

We return to Gilmore's again and again for their always very fresh fish -- their haddock basket is the best anywhere. My husband has on occasion had fried scallops, which are just as good. Gilmore's has no non-fried fish options, in case that is an issue. If you're up for friend fish, however, Gilmore's is great. They also have their... More

I went in looking to buy fried haddock and found myself and my guests trying many new menu items I've never seen at another seafood restaurant! They have amazing shrimp tacos, summer salads, fried seafood, chowder and even desserts! I couldn't believe it. I ended up ordering a few meals and taking some home. Portions are big and prices are... More

Walked in and everyone looked at me with a blank stare. Very uncomfortable atmosphere. I will be going elsewhere!

Three of us were up in Maine for a wedding weekend and were searching for a lobster roll. We drove by a few, but nothing caught our eye. We drove up to Gilmores and were a little hesitant to stop in, but it was great! Two of us got lobster rolls- $14.95 each with a good amount of meat, a... More
