Excellent food Excellent variety of foods on menu Best thing is that lobster shell is partially cut making it much easier to get the meat and making the meal much more enjoyable Excellent service by excellent staff

The lobster rolls are excellent and so are the other menu items! Nice selection of beers and wines. Asaparagus is delicious. We love the location and seating options. Very friendly staff and the owner is on site. We have tried some others and the new place but Lobster Dock is still the best.

Stopped here for lunch. Very enjoyable with a great view. We all enjoyed our food. Only negative was the Clam Chowder was not thick enough though it had a great taste! There are both inside and outside tables. Order, get a number, and food is brought to you by helpful wait staff.

The atmosphere is truly authentic! The lobster just doesn't get any fresher than this. We love going here, it's one of our favorite maine things to do. There's nothing quite like eating a lobster on the dock and watching the boats come in after their catch😂

I hate crab cakes, but these were awesome. Disregard the not so nice woman at the window, the food is worth the brief wait and glares

Great casual waterfront dining. Food was very good. My wife found gluten free options. Good value, We enjoyed our apps and the fish and chips was very good.

The clam chowder was fantastic and so was everything else. 8 people in our group ate here for 3 meals and everyone was completely satisfied.
