Stopped there for lunch based on reviews on this site. Had a lobster salad sandwich and bowl of clam chowder. Both were very good and I would go again.

We came by this place on accident and I am so thrilled we did. Great lobster! You choose the size you want and they steam it for you and add whatever sides and fixins you want. Best lobster we had in Maine !

You get to pick what size lobsters you want and they cook them for you in wood fires in sea water. add on some good corn on the cob or steamed clams and make it a great mini shore dinner. This place was packed!! We were there on opening day on... More

Because we had such a wonderful experience on vacation at Trenton Bridge, my husband had them ship clams, mussels, and 3 lobster to us for Valentine's dinner! The food arrived exactly when expected. My husband steamed everything, and we feasted! All that was missing from the experience were the beautiful shores of Maine.

Trenton Bridge Lobster offers the best lobster anywhere... It's the place to go when you want to enjoy fresh, delicious lobster and enjoy it in a comfortable environment. This is a place where you can order fresh, large lobster, as well. The scene outside is picture perfect. We look forward to this place every time we visit Bar Harbor.

The only thing I did not enjoy and will not get again is their potato salad, but then I am a potato salad snob. But everything else is excellent! First time can be a little confusing but they are patient and help you. All other times will be simple. Can't wait for our next visit.

Every time we go to Acadia; Trenton Bridge is our "go-to" place for lobster. The lobster is the best we've ever had - very fresh (their trucks bring in fresh lobster all day long) and boiled in seawater over wood fires. This is a place for purists - lobster/drawn butter/corn/clams/mussels - the freshest and most succulent available. It's a place... More

We had read how busy this place was so we decided to try it out around 4pm. It was perfect! Quick service. Folks were helpful in describing our first time ordering. The diners eating around us were quite happy to share their smiles and robust shell cracking. It was a great experience.

This was our first stop for lobster on our Maine trip and it was a great first stop. Cheap, down and dirty, yummy Maine lobster! You go into the lobster pound, pick out your live lobster, which is some of the cheapest in town, then it goes outside to be cooked and comes back freshly cooked ready for you to... More
