Lobster Delight

The place looks like a big barn filled with water tanks. These tanks hold hundreds of lobsters ready to be cooked. We did not eat here. We ordered our lobsters and some clam dip. The lobsters are delicious, the service great, and the dip we had required us to obtain more. If you like lobster this... read more

We stopped on our way to Moorings RV Park & Campground to pick up Lobsters & Clams for a lobster bake. We usually come at least twice a year, great service, great seafood, and most important the Clams are clean and never gritty.

First impressions might turn you away. You walk into an old building with lobsters tanks.You order at a counter and they call you when your meal is ready. But oh what a meal !! Everything is so fresh. You take the food outside and sit looking over the harbor. There are also tables inside on the second floor with a... More

This is a great lobster house and a fun attraction at the same time. If you are not from Maine Young's is a real eye opener for the sheer quantities of lobsters and the freshest and most delicious crustaceans you will ever dine on, cooked simply in a comfortable, down to earth setting. This place is a treat for the... More

This is a place that you cannot miss when you are in the area. You would not bet on it looking from outside, since it looks more like a market than a restaurant but the beauty of the place is that you see your live lobsters cooked in hot sea water and the taste is Amazing. Prices are very reasonable.... More

We were on our honeymoon, road tripping to Canada and stopped here for lunch. You can bring your own beverages ;) and enjoy the fresh lobster. The views were beautiful and the lobster had a sea salt taste to it. The workers let us hold a live lobster and were full of enthusiastic energy! Would recommend to any lobster lovers!

If you are looking to dine on fresh lobster in the most casual way (no worries about making a mess here), this is a great spot. The prices aren't bad, the view on the deck is beautiful and the Maine experience is hard to beat. They served the BEST lobster roll I have ever had - full of giant chunks... More

For good seafood to be eaten on deck, this is the place. Very responsible prices, good customer service and wait time quick (but this may vary depending on how many people are currently there. Bring your own beer and/or wine. You may also dress it up the picnic tables with table cloth/placemats, if you like.

Don't miss the authentic lobster pound experience. Place your order, grab a picnic table overlooking the water, and soak up the happy energy here. Lobster and clams were outstanding. Lobster rolls are very good too.
