Description: Enjoy lobster, steamers, lobster rolls, chowder and a whole lot more in a friendly, casual atmosphere. Live lobsters caught by local lobstermen wait in tanks filled with ocean water coming straight from the cove. Choose your size and two sides. For all the taste without the work, have a lobster roll any way you like it...a quarter pound single, double-stuffed, triple, or an entire pound on a buttery toasted roll with or without mayo. The lobster wrap and lobster BLT are also recently added favorites. Homemade chowder made from an old family recipe is a great way to start your meal, there's no thickening flour just the perfect combination of clams, fish, potatoes, onions and spices in a milk and cream base.The "Shack" has been owned and operated by the Evans family since the 1980s and is proud to serve the hottest chowder and the coldest beer in town. Let Jason, his family and his crew provide you with a true Maine eating experience in the oldest restaurant in Perkins Cove...

Delicious fresh Main Lobster. This was the best meal I had in Maine. The Lobster was so delicious and the price was very reasonable. The place is great for anyone who wants to get a glimpse into local life. Kids aren't allowed after 9.

My wife and I started visiting the Lobster Shack during the cold weather season, when parking was not crazy in Perkins Cove, and we were looking for something different. We tried the chowder (outstanding) and the fish tacos (better than outstanding) and have made this place a regular stop in Ogunquit. Tonight the crowds were back, but so were we.... More

Visiting Maine meant that I'd have to get lobster many times while here. Lobster Shack looked good online and was equally good to visit for lunch. The lobster roll was delicious and well cooked---not overcooked, not too much sauce, just right! The fish tacos, something I love to order, were an excellent New England take on a common dish. Well... More

We returned in June 2014 for another visit to Perkins Cove, and we had the Lobster Shack on our mind before we even arrived. We both got double lobsters, steamed to order, with accompanying sweet corn on the cob and creamy cole slaw. Lots of melted butter and all the utensils and bib provided keep you happy. The price went... More

It's a laid back restaurant with good food. It was our first stop. The lobsters were great! Had a lobster roll for the first time, which was good. Seemed a little pricey.

Had two lunches here and thoroughly loved it. Just the type of place you want to go to in Maine. Completely casual, staff and other diners are friendly and warm. The food...the best lobster roll I have ever had. And now that I live in CT where they just do not know how to make it right...ugh butter????---I particularly enjoy... More

We have been visiting Ogunquit for years and we always wanted to go in this place, finally we did and it was amazing!!!!! My husband ordered the lobster stew, what can I say there was a large amount of huge pieces of sweet, succulent lobster swimming in there. We then ordered the lobster roll, a 4 ounce specimen of the... More
