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...

Was our favorite place two years ago. Lobster OK little small. No more lobster specials. Worst clam chowder and cold slaw I've had. Chowder was very thin. O Well just have to find a new favorite place

The food was great, they have a good system of taking your order and serving you. Good lobster rolls and my fish tacos were good also.

4 of us went to Lobster Shack last night. We were not disappointed. We all had lobster with potato salad and rolls. Draft beer completed the meal. The ambiance was appropriate for eating a messy meal. We ate at picnic tables( indoors ). You order at the counter. We paid $14 per pound for our lobster. The weight is in... More

We parked our car as we were about to eat at a nearby restaurant. A lclcal suggested we try Lobster Shack. Husband got Chowder while I got the Lobster Stew. Believe stew was much better. Creamy and rich with lobster. His chowder was ok but little bland. Both need corn. Was fun.

This is by far one of the best places in Perkins Cove! They have all your basic seafood selections, along with some of your standard sandwich choices. If you're wanting wine or beer, they have it! Your food is ordered at the counter and brought to your seat by the staff. Everyone there is always very friendly and we look... More

The lobster BLT was really excellent. The bacon was very crispy and there was lots of lobster meat. This was a memorable lunch for sure.

We love this place. No frills, just good food. The lobster always tastes like it was just swimming minutes before going into the pot. My wife usually goes towards the hamburger which she loves. The food is ordered at a counter and delivered by wait staff. All staff is friendly and helpful. They seem to want to please at every... More

We had very bland clam chowder, bland lobster rolls and pretty good crab cakes. The wait staff was great, really nice young woman with a great sense of humor. Quite expensive. I would not not recommend.

The lobster was steamed to perfection. The lobster roll was well seasoned. The meat was plentiful and the choice of sides was appropriate. The seafood chowder was delicious. Overall good value for the price.

It is worth the standing. Good fresh lobster. Nothing fancy. Take a jacket. The picnic tables are by the ocean.
