The same cannot be said for the old oil smell that permeates your clothes as you walk in. Buy the fish and take it home for a real treat. Caution:in the summer when busy they can get crazy rude...

The fish market has very fresh fish of all kinds and their lobster rolls are excellent. Staff and service are very good. Most of the outdoor seating is right next to a very busy road; no view; not relaxing, BUT there's a lower table area with a view. Even right on the road, the lobster rolls and fish dinners are...

Gurnet's has wonderful seafood: diver scallops, lobsters, seafood chowder, etc. No need to go anywhere else. In addition, I always find great conversation and friendly help.

Best seafood on the mid coast. Outside seating on the water is nice in warmer weather. Small casual dining area is comfortable all year.

We were told to stop by Gurnet's by a local resident. The food was amazing and the staff very helpful in arranging some seafood to bring back home. If you find yourself near Brunswick a stop by Gurnet's should be on your list.

Perched to service the Harpswell Islands on RTE 24, this place may be easily dismissed due to it's small footprint and short notice signage. Don't make that mistake.
