This is a tiny take out right next to the footbridge in Perkin's Cove. The sign says the lobster served is caught by the owner, perhaps that is true but aside from the location it is nothing special. The lobster roll is well priced and contains a good 5 oz of pure lobster meat with no fillings. You can have... More

Huge lobster rolls done with your choice of butter or mayo. Very tender and sweet. Delicious fries and fried clam strips. Considering the crowd and the small kitchen, they are fairly efficient. If you order something like a grilled cheese, it does take longer. Skip the cole slaw as it is just ok. Prices are fair but for a family... More

This was a great lobster roll. This isn't a full service restaurant, just a food stand. The location is beautiful and finding somewhere to sit and enjoy my lobster roll in Perkins Cove was simple. I will eat here again and I definitely recommend it!

My two daughters and I come to Ogunquit each year for our annual lobster and seafood foodie vacation. We decided to give Footbridge Lobster a try, since we wanted some clam chowder to warm us up on a chilly and gray day on the Maine coast. After walking into Perkin's Cove via the Marginal Way, we came across this little... More

I saw a U-tube video raving about the Lobster stew served at this dockside stand. When we visited this outside stand, it wasn't listed on the menu. When we asked about it, we were told that they stopped making it because only the owner ate it. So we settled for the Lobster BLT. What a mistake!! The lobster was dry... More

This little place serves up great prices, and super tender lobster. Great views abound in Perkins Cove. Stop here and enjoy the freshest, most tender lobster ever.

I gave it a four star rating because it is a very efficient reasonably priced lobster stand. I purchased a lobster roll and although it was stuffed full, with what appeared to be the meat of two lobsters, I felt it was a little tasteless and chewy. Just an average lobster roll.

If you're looking for a really fresh, really fast lobster roll in Perkins Cove, this is the place to be. You can tell from the line of people that folks know what they want, and we were not disappointed! Grab your meal in a paper box, sit on a bench watching the sites and enjoy. It does not get any...

My husband and I have eaten hear before and couldn't wait to go back. This is a little lobster stand nestled in Perkins Cove. We ordered the fresh steamed twin lobsters, 1 lobster roll and an order of the lobster mango tacos and split it all while sitting on the rocks by the water. Can't beat the food or the... More

If you're looking for a simple, good lobster roll, this place has it. Overflowing with simple, fresh lobster. Also recommend clam strips.
