We had about the reviews here and drove passed it one day to see what it looked like from the outside. The minute I saw it I said no way - it looks like a dump. After much discussion later we went for for dinner and WOW - it was the best meal of the the trip. Friendly waiters, the... More

At the advice of a local, we came here for our lobster. We were not disappointed. This place is a couple miles out of town and off the beaten path and it is a hut but well worth the trip. The lobsters were tender and cooked just right. Use the bib and the handy sinks placed right in the dining... More

The last stop on our way home from 4 days in Kennebunkport area . Got a lobster roll to go. It was smaller than others in the area but almost 1/2 the price so if you need a quick fix for $12.95 on a roll this is it . It did have a bit of mayo and paprika which is... More

We visited this place on our last night in Maine. Just what we needed. A lobster only shack. Rustic with picnic type tables. My wife and I got the special, two one and one quarter Lb lobsters for $28.95. They were great although just a tad overcooked. Place was full and everybody seemed happy. Best blueberry pie I've ever had.... More

We found the place in the list of the the 5 Maine's best lobster pounds in the Lonely Planet guidebook. As our family of 4 presented ourselve to the reception for dinner, we were told that we'd have to wait outside, although the place seemed quite empty and the 3 tables in front of the reception were vacant. So we... More

We had bland clam chowder, lobster stew (just okay, nothing special) and boiled lobster. The lobster was very good, except for the tails - tough, chewy and yucky. The address for this place is wrong. It is located in Cape Porpoise and is not easy to find. Our GPS lead us to an empty lot in Kennebunkport, so call ahead... More

We arrived promptly at 4:58pm, the doors opened at 5pm. We were quickly seated and ordered our lobster rolls. The buns were perfectly toasted and buttered, the lobster was just perfect as well. This was certainly one of my favorite rolls all weekend and made for the perfect afternoon snack. The place is a classic! We heard that their blueberry... More

My wife and I visited this place for the first time. I have no idea why we haven't been here before but it was a big hit! At first we were put off by the fact it is not on the water but that faded quickly. It's a long narrow building with picnic like tables inside. We were glad it... More

Loved this place. Friendly, high energy wait staff eager to help a couple guys from Indiana figure out the lobster routine. They had great, simple food. Lobster rolls were amazing. Try their own brand of tasty root beer. Enjoy the quaint interior, nautical stuff, little tables and benches, fast moving, never still wait staff. Fun place. Great food. When in... More
