Lobster with a view

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... read 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

Shaw's is the local place we go to first when we get here. Fresh lobster, good local beer and one of those onion blossoms! Oh man we look forward every year to this meal. You might have to wait for an inside table, it can get pretty cold on October, but it's worth the wait. This spot closes sometime over... More

When it was Small Bros. we made a point to have lobster dinner. Now on our way to Pemaquid we stop for lunch. The lobster rolls don't compare to Red's Eats in Wiscasset as a friend pointed out but there is usually not a long line for lunch and I love the view. The prices were in line with other... More

For anyone who knows Young's Lobster Shack in Belfast, Maine, you would think that it would be difficult to find better lobster rolls. Until you chance to go to Shaw's, perhaps for lunch after visiting Pemaquid Point. Their lobster rolls are as good if not better, with plenty of good, solid lobster meat. Not cheap but not over-priced either. Typical... More
