Lunch with a view

Just went on opening day of the season and was the first person in line. The lobster roll was delicious, the view was incredible of the Harbor and the staff was very friendly. Drove 3 hrs out of our way to get here on our vacation from California.

What more could you ask for....inside and outside dining. I like sitting out on the deck overlooking the working harbor where fishing boats come in and out. The day we were there in October 2014 a tuna was pulled out of a boat...I can't remember if it was 600 or 800+ pounds. Either way - pretty cool to watch them... More

Thank God for Pinterest ! I just happened to be browsing for ocean scenes for my paintings, and what should pop up, but the restaurant that I have been looking for ever since we ate there a few years ago! This was BY FAR the best lobster roll we had ever eaten. We are from Cape Cod, so we know... More

Lobstermen pull up to their dock to unload the days catch while you eat twin lobsters and fried clams. Drink a toast to their labor. The deck provides views of this charming fishing village and Monhegan Island. This is my favorite lobster pound. But watch out for seagulls! They'll snatch your four-year olds hamburger, if given a chance. Serves them... More

We are looking forward to another visit soon when at the Maine coast area for a few days. We will bring our dog, leashed, this next time and hope thisboutdoor venue is pet friendly so we will be welcomed. Thank you.

We camped in the area and got a take-out meal from this place. There was plenty of food at a reasonable price.

We have enjoyed Shaw's for many years. It is terrific to come down to look out over the scenic little harbor, and then enjoy lobster at picnic tables either on the deck on inside the rustic restaurant. Many years, we enjoy our first lobster of the season at Shaw's and then our last of the season just before Shaw's closes... More

Coming from the Midwest, we have trouble finding really fresh lobster in local restaurants. Shaw"s was great with fresh local lobsters coming in almost daily. Prices were very reasonable. A lobster with coleslaw and a roll was only $16.95. We also tried the lobster stew, which was delicious. This is a really great place for lobster lovers. They also have... More

Eating fresh seafood from their deck over looking the cove at New Harbor can't be beat. You may even get to see a lobster boat unloading the catch of the day.

Shaw's was recommended by a lady I got talking to at Pemaquid Point. She was not wrong. This is a basic cafe, actually, but the clam chowder was the best I have ever had. The USA has discovered Cider (hooray! the alcoholic kind) we even had a choice of varieties. We were lucky that the day was sunny, so we... More
