Fresh Lobster, Good Prices

Young's Lobster Pound is one of many similar places you can find in the area, and they have fresh caught lobster (and other seafood) at reasonable prices.

Young's has fresh seafood - they will prepare it for you but we always take it home and cook it for ourselves. Lobsters of all sizes and fresh and lively - I suggest you get at least 1.75 lb but I like the 2 pound plus - with that size you get a lot of great tender back meat -... More

This is a great lobster pound to get food to take home or to eat in. The view is amazing and the seafood is always incredible!

The Clam Chowder at $7.50 a cup was a very small portion and the seasoning was not to my taste. The Clam Shack in Kennebunkport had the best "chowda" with the right amount of cream, and plenty of clams. Anyway, on our receipt that I checked showed two sodas when we only had large cups of water from a soda... More

We were in the area during off-season. Therefore, many of the restaurants were closed. Although I am allergic to seafood, we took a chance that there were other things on the menu. I had a blue cheese burger with fries. It was your basic burger and I have no complaints. My friend had the fish tacos. She was rather disappointed.... More

I was in Belfast for work and the customer took me here. We ordered clams, mussels, and lobster. Pretty common for the area, sitting by the water the atmosphere was basic but relaxing.

I always make it a point to at least visit this place once during my stays in Belfast, ME. Whether I visit off season or in-season it is truly tasty. The atmosphere is rustic but if you want really good lobster at a fair price, this is the place to go. The only "con" is they nickel and dime the... More

You pick your lobster, they cook it and deliver to your table overlooking Belfast Bay. Perfect! You can bring you own side dishes or order from them. Also, it's BYOB.

Youn'g has been around for a long time. It is Maine dining at it's best with great views, picnic tables and the freshest lobsters around. The prior issue with dining at Young's is that if you did not want lobster, there were few other choices for your non lobster guest. Last year they began expanding their menu to other types... More

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.
