We went out of our way on a ride up to Maine to seek this place out based upon the reviews we read here. Wow, what a disappointment! The lobster rolls that I see in some of the other reviewers photos do not resemble what we were served. We visited on a Sunday afternoon, around the 3:00 hour. There was... More

My wife & I try to have a long lunch at Gurnet every time we come to Maine! A wonderful hidden GEM on the side of the road as you are traveling to the end of the earth! FRESH cooked chowder of various fish, clam or seafood! They will make you a crab roll, a lobster roll or deep fry... More

The lobster rolls are packed with lobster! So much lobster we plan our vacations around being able to stop at least twice for lobster rolls and chowder. Great service, friendly staff and terrific food!

This restaurant is very small but packs a good meal. limited seating. It is not fast food as each order is prepared accordingly. 5% off for using cash or debit.

We had a quart of the seafood and lobster stew. They were both very good. I would highly recommend them.

We are local, and this is our favorite place in the area for take out seafood. The diver scallops are fantastic. The oysters are terrific. The hand picked crabmeat is wonderful. And, if none of those work for you, there's always lobster and steamers. This is Maine, after all (which also means it closes early, so it's really a lunch... More

For the second time, the lobster stew in our take-out order spilled out in spite of our very careful transport of it to our home 4 miles away. The first time, we we "let it ride". On this past Friday, it happened again. When we returned today to order more of their delicious food, we mentioned the problem. We got... More

We actually never eat in or on their patio as we live down the street. Take Out is great and we go weekly for their fresh fish. Often buy lobsters (fresh off their boat), steamers, halibut, dive scallops. My take-out favorites are lobster roll, scallops, clams. This restaurant is more of a Clam Shack atmosphere -- if you want a... More

Came up to Maine to look for lobsters in September. The place we were looking for was already closed for the year. Asked a local, who recommended this place instead. Prices are good. Multi-pound lobsters are only $8 a pound, plus a dollar per pound for cooking. So we got a big one, 3.6-pounder. The big lobster is a bit... More
