Fresh as it Gets

There's just something about eating lobster(lobstah), when you watch this lovely crustacean, go from boat to plate. That's what you get from Footbridge Lobster at Perkins Cove. It just doesn't get fresher than this. Combine freshness with expert preparation and you have a culinary experience you... read more

If you are a lobster lover, than you know that steaming the lovely creatures is SO much better than boiling. We bought our lobsters here four days in a row last week, and each one was just perfect. The other menu options are great too; especially the Grilled Cheese & Lobster sandwich - heaven. And, if you have any special... More

Visited with Ralph and his crew today for a midday lunch. We ordered 4 twin lobsters with chips or slaw. Also the onion rings and fries. The lobsters were rather large and meaty for for twins. In one word "succulent" ! Cooked perfectly. We walked across the foot bridge and ate them Punic style on the lawn. Careful to clean... More

We've had lobster rolls here several times since they opened and they used to give you one of the best. This year the price is up to $18.95 and there was much less meat in the lobster roll. We have been hearing that lobsters have been more scarce this spring and that prices are up so we understand the increase... More

We are frequent visitors to Ogunquit and have seen the price of the lobster rolls at Footbridge increase as the size and quality. decreases. Definitely would recommend going next store to Lobster Shack or looking outside of Perkins Cove.

The is the best seafood around. Footbridge Lobster is owned by lobstermen and fishermen, and they serve what they catch. Get the huge lobster roll, for the fish and chips, or anything for that matter. There's no seating, indoor or out, but you can take it over to the docks and sit on the benches and eat while looking out... More

My partner and I stopped here along a morning walk of the Marginal Way from Ogunquit Center to Perkins Cove. While we were looking to get a breakfast sandwich, we opted to go with their "world famous" lobster roll. I must say it was one of the best ones we have had. My partner is from Maine and we both...

We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, who was more than happy to sit and chat with us and tell us about the difference in the various shellfish seasons. It was a little windy of a day to eat outside, and since this is just a takeout place, we opted to get a lobster roll to go. It was... More

They make it fresh and they make it the way you want it. It is perfection and I have tried lobster rolls galore. I dream about when I will have it next when I am riding out of Ogunquit, and I'm from Boston! The only downfall is that it is just a counter with two or three seats so you... More
