My husband and I recently had dinner at this restaurant and were quite pleased. There was indoor and outdoor seating but because it was very breezy we opted for inside near a window. This was not a formal dining establishment but rather was an informal, place your order at the window, fill your own drinks, wait for your number to... More

During my trip to New England I was looking for a place to have fried clams. As my wife and I were taking the Hardy Boat Cruise on July 7th, we stopped here to have a meal. My wife had the salmon. She loved it. I must admit... I'm not a salmon lover but it was very tasty and well-prepared.... More

As always, I look forward to my trips to Maine, not just to visit friends but to have a LOBSTAH ROLL. A bit pricey, but I was a guest of a Mainer, and she enjoyed hers too! Great feature was the sea-side tank/pool set up on the deck, for the kids. The best part was watching them get acquainted with... More

Delicious lobster! Fun atmosphere! Had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. The price was slightly high but it was the first place we went to for lobster so we didn't know any better.

Everything we had was very good. Even my non seafood eating husband said the steak tips he had was better than any he had in awhile. "Most seafood places do not do non seafood good and these were really good". We had lobster, lobster roll, and whole belly clams. My mother in law had the clams and said she has... More

I am sure the fish is really fresh; the lobster sandwich was good, however no better than elsewhere. Crabmeat sandwich was just so so. I would highly recommend staying away from the chowders, though! They basically consisted of milk with fish/lobster pieces in it. No other ingredients. A chowder has to be more than milky broth with some pieces of... More

Shaw's is a local wonder. Great seafood at affordable rates. Outdoor service. Steamers, lobsters, fresh fish, desserts. A family friendly atmosphere overlooking picturesque New Harbor. Friendly wait staff, too.

Can't get any fresher than seeing the lobsters unloaded right as you are eating. We like to eat out on the deck and enjoy the beautiful quaint harbor views. Our clam strips were delicious and something we cannot get at home so we really enjoyed our meal. Service was quick and friendly. You order food at counter then pick up... More

This lobster pound is not to be missed. Overlooking a working fishing harbor the lobster come in fresh on the first floor and served on the deck over the harbor. The sunset views here are spectacular. This is a wonderful slice of Maine. Price is great.

We ate here three times in a week, partly due to proximity to our cottage, but also a testimonial to how much we liked Shaw's. If you can park, find a table outside, and the weather stays nice (no guarantees on any of these!) the location can't be beat. We ate, in no particular order: lobster, crab cake sandwich, blackened... More
