Great view, average food, high prices

My wife and I visited on October 24, 2014 for lunch. I had a lobster roll, and my wife had a salad. Both were average, but rather high priced. The service was very nice, helpful and polite. I would not visit again as there are better values in the area.

The seafood platter needs another pinch of salt. Clam chowder is sold out! Come on! You've been falling in long line and no clam chowder.

We had to wait for our meal as they just had a new catch of lobster in, however it was worth the wait . The food was fresh and the staff were very friendly

We never miss an opportunity to eat a lobster roll at McLoughlin's when we visit Maine. Right on the picturesque beach in Lincolnville, ME, this terrific restaurant is unpretentious and very clean. They easily have the best lobster roll we've ever eaten and the quality has been consistently good over the last five plus years we've been visiting Maine. Thanks... More

Great way to end a hike up the frohock mt. trail. Tables outside have a beautiful view of the lobster boats and bay. Beer was cold, staff very friendly and lobsters fresh off the boat.

The lobster was fresh, juicy, sweet, and mouth watering! The prices were so reasonable we went back twice. The first time for a lobster dinner and the second time for a lobster roll!

A terrific, no-frills lobster shack on Penobscot Bay. Superior lobster rolls, great fries and cole slaw, exceptionally good fish chowder, terrific ice cream. The service is a bit on the slow side, but it's worth the wait. You can--and should--sit outside.

Good food! Priced right for the area! Central to the area of our stay! If you like seafood, and don't need a full service place to eat, go here!

Seats inside and out. Outside some tables are covered by tent. Great lobster roll and husband was happy with his hamburger. Right next to Linconville Beach and harbor with view of the ferry and boats. Came back the next day for Gifford's ice cream.
