Stop for lunch

We took the scenic route to Portland and came across this place and decided to stop because there were a number of cars in the lot. Both sandwiches came loaded with lobster. The crab and lobster roll was oversized, toasted properly and stuffed with chucks of lobster and crab meat. The lobster... read more

We had the Shore Dinner and Lazy Lobster. In both cases the lobster seemed overcooked and very tough.

This restaurant was advertising whole lobster for $12.99 on outside sign, so we decided to give them a try. Naturally the lobster at that price was all you got, but side orders were reasonably priced. I ordered twin lobster with salad and corn on the cob, for $29.99. The lobsters were great, as were the sides. Wife had single lobster,... More

This very authentic restaurant on the water, offers all types of local seafood and it is really great. Staff was friendly and prompt to serve our group. Everyone reported terrific seafood of different kinds...lobster, shrimp, clam (chowder), with fresh salads and garlic bread. Dinner was filling, so no one ordered desserts.

On the first evening in Maine, the hotel recommended A Taste of Maine. It was a delight..full bar..and excellent fresh seafood. The price is not over the top. The twin lobsters were perfect size and cooked perfectly. No room for dessert.

We were in Bath and wanted something close by. Taste of Maine was perfect. Early Sunday evening it was very quiet and we were a little wary of the near empty parking lot. We got a table by the huge windows and got to watch eagles and osprey do some fishing. They even have binoculars on the ledges to get... More

we had the delicious Wednesday special lobster...$12 each with no sides which was fine for us. A few days later we had the senior special haddock dinner which was excellent & included a side of salad & ice cream. Both days we sat out on the deck which was very enjoyable. Cold glasses of Shipyard beer were also good.

This is my husband's favorite place for seafood in Maine. We try to get here at least once a year. We usually have lobster in one form or another, steamed clams also a favorite. The price of seafood varies daily and is usually expensive but as I said, we come once a year. Service is always good as well. Love... More
