It must be the way the fresh seawater circulates in the tanks but their lobster is impeccable. In the summer we ear outside on the picnic tables (BYOB) and in the winter they will cook the lobster and pack it hot and ready to go!

I have been going here for years and my trip to Maine wouldn't be complete without a meal or two here. The staff clearly likes working here and is very quick to make sure your order is just right. Eating fresh lobster on a picnic table overlooking the harbour as the late afternoon light changes is an event ! You... More

Based on earlier reviews, we had zeroed in on visiting Young's Lobster Pound for a late lunch during a day trip along the Maine coast in early October (I know, late review). Everything about the experience was great. My wife got two lobsters for $20 and I had the lobster roll. We were ready for the picnic style of eating,... More

This seems to be a great example of a Maine style. Order at a counter and your shellfish (which is why one eats here) are pulled from the huge tanks and cooked and your number is called when it's ready. Served on plastic trays, dining at picnic tables either outside on the dock or upstairs in a hall. Staff is... More

Maine lobster that close to the ocean must be fresh and tasty. Five stars for the lobster. Young's is a picnic-type adventure. We did not know this and missed having a beer or side of potato salad to accompany our bargain lobster/clam bake feast. It came with two steamed lobsters, clams, shrimp, lots and lots of steamed mussels and two... More

This is one of my favorite places for lobster rolls. Be sure to ask for it hot and buttered. The rolls have a very generous serving of lobster meat and are always fresh and flavorful. The clam cowder was a little watery but full of big chunks of clam and potato. There is a good amount of indoor and outdoor... More

Yet another city, yet another lobster roll! In spite of being right by the water and a lobster pound for sure AND recommended by lobstergal.com we were disappointed. It was okay, but not as tasty as the others we had on this trip- a bit bland and too much mayo for our tastes.

Very classy for a lobster pound - order inside, pickup, carry to outside picnic tables. Friendly, entertaining servers. BYOB. Indoor flush. Open 365 days. Also have scallops, haddock, etc.

Bring your own beer, and feast on some of the best lobster you have ever had. It was off the road but worth the trip. Casual, picnic tables inside and out. You can order a bucket like we did which is 2 lobsters, 12 clams and musscles, some oysters and 4 shrimp for about $40 but next time we will... More

We called the order in and it was ready and packed when we got there. The lobster and steamers were great! Young's is the best!
