If you really want to enjoy Maine lobster this is the place. The outdoor seating is perfect for the views and when your looking for just great food this is the place. Casual wear (we travel by motorcycle) is acceptable and to just sit and enjoy lobster at a very reasonable price, this is it.

Young's Lobster Pound isn't much to look at. Gravel parking lot down a long driveway, but don't let that fool you. You can buy fresh (live) lobste here for a very reasonable price, or, they will cook it up for you and you can eat on the tables on the second floor. I bought the Lobster Roll Sandwich. I've had...

Young's Lobster Pound has open air dining for: 500 people on it's deck, in the summer; less seats inside at the restaurant. I recommend you choose the restaurant in the winter-despite the possibility that students at Maine Maritime Academy (across the Penobscot Bay) might still be jumping in the water for abandon ship drills. But I digress. Young's has a... More

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
