Stopped on our way through to Bar Harbor, my husband had the Eric MacLaren made extra spicy and loved it. I had the Lowland Cove panini and loved it as well. Very cute restaurant with good food at good prices.

About 30 minutes before closing, we went in to see if we could get soup to take out for dinner. The owner and two staff members were more than willing to put the mulagatawny in containers for us. And this was done with warm smiles and some great friendly conversation. By the way, the soup was excellent. We'll be back... More

This restaurant has delicious sandwiches and salads for lunch and a cute, comfortable atmosphere. Their lobster roll is fantastic!

Great spot for freshly made sandwiches served, as advertised, on freshly baked breads. Had the 1/2 pound lobster roll which rivals Red's in Wiscasset for quality (but is a little more costly). Service was friendly; order at the register and find a table and they bring your food to you. Enjoyed reading the collection of older Maine magazines while eating.

On the way to pick up lobsters for the night's dinner we decided to stop at Clan MacLaren's for lunch. Although we visit Rockland each June this is the first time at this restaurant. We were not disappointed. Shared a Reuben made with pastrami. This is my husband's favorite sandwich and he said it was the best he's ever had.... More

After a week on the road with tired kids we were after a healthy alternative. The staff were friendly, accommodating and helpful. Lovely food and atmosphere.

Only got to visit Maine for the day and happened to stop in at Clan MacLaren's. We had the lobster roll on fresh bread and fish chowder-it was delicious. The service was great and friendly. To top off our meal we had freshly made mini pumpkin whoopie pie, can't decide which part was best:-) Can't wait to go back.

Quick service and yummy food. Lobster roll was so good on a fresh roll. Whoopie pie to die for was the desert of choice. Great value.

The freshest lobster, from the boat, to the pot, to my plate! Who wants a skimpy hot dog roll when you can order this lobster meat salad on a fresh bulkie roll! The perfect amount of mayo to keep it somewhat together, and able to savor the flavor of fresh cracked lobster. I cannot wait to go back and try... More

Absolutely one of the best BLTs ever. I'm not sure why - good bread, good bacon, warm cheese, just plain good. Other interesting sandwiches are on the extensive menu and lots of interesting sounding salads are to be found as well. The seafood chowder was amazing. Lobster (fresh caught by the owner), scallops and clams in a wonderful, rich, tasty... More
