Gorgeous nearly-fall day in Lincolnville so we ate outside at McLaughlin's. Terrific food, fast service, good value.

Nice place! Casual, clean, friendly service and delicious food! Lobster rolls & onion rings were just what we wanted! Right on the water. We will definitely eat here again!

very good lobster roll on a 12" !!! roll. just the right taste and the long roll means the lobster is not falling out at every bite. very nice staff. bright airy (kind of like outside) place overlooking the beach

If you're looking for a true, Maine lobster shack experience put this on your list. This "lobster shack" sits right in a small harbor with a beautiful view. Sit outside on their clean picnic tables and eat the freshest lobster you'll find. The staff is ultra-friendly. This was as fine a stop as we had in our trip to Maine

My family which includes two young boys and two dogs accidentally found this place and what a great find it was. Friendly people and some of the best food we have had in Maine. Bonus was kids and dogs had a natural playground and adults had a beautiful view. If you need a casual place with great food and service... More

We have been coming here for years. Overall, the food is good, but we've had better for much lower prices. The lobster rolls are good, but Graffam's in Rockport is half the price, better tasting and bigger. The shrimp is as good as anywhere, and the fried haddock was fresh with an ordinary breading. What supersedes all other lobster shacks... More

We've seen this place many times and finally decided to give it a go. My husband had fish tacos which he liked. I had a clam roll which was too doughy & not enough clams. The food is not commensurate to qualify for their prices which, I think, are high. Would not eat here again.

There is a place called The Lobster Pound, and this was next to it on the other side. SOOO glad we ate here. Freshest seafood and outdoor dining by the beach and harbor
