Right on the water, it doesn't get much better than this for Maine Seafood.

Right on the water, it doesn't get much better than this for Maine seafood. I'm a Mainer, so I know. The prices are fair and based on current market prices. There is a wide range of shellfish and some fish. We had the crab cake basket with fries and a crab roll. There was a generous portion of meat... read more

My husband and I recently vacationed in Edgecomb, Maine. We decided to try Sprague's after having an awful experience at Red's which is across the street. After reading many reviews that said Sprague's was way better than Red's we decided to try it and see if that was true. Well, bottom line is, it's just as bad. In case you're... More

Good food, reasonably priced. Lobster dinners with all trimmings for not too much. Great hamburgers and fries or onion rings.

We had lobster rolls, chicken tenders, crab cakes, it was delicious.Ther service was great...the view was beautiful watching the fishing boats and train so close.The water was so pretty looking up the river.You can watch them cook the lobsters, talk to the owner Frank..he tells you all about the fishermen and the town. Great place to eat!!

This is a great lobster shack to stop at for a roll or a whole lobster! Great taste, no long lines, and eating right on the water. Word of caution, they do not accept credit cards! Cash only!

Reds is always crowed, but Sprague's is not . Plenty of lobster meat on the roll and just as good. great outdoor seating and can even get a lobster dinner if you want. will definitely return

If you want a great lobster roll with lots of meat, this is it! Seating is on the deck on the water and with none of the wait for service like Red's Eats across the street. The food was great and the proprietors friendly. Parking on site.

Stop me if you've heard this one before-I drove through Wiscasset on a Sunday afternoon and there were perhaps 20-25 people in line at Red's, which from prior experience led me to believe it would be at least an hour between the line, waiting for my order, eating, and then finally getting back on the road to continue on my...
