This was the place that another lobster joint we were originally going to check out pointed us to (they were not a sit down restaurants, oops). Lobster Cove was just the experience I was looking for. Top floor, beach house feel, ocean front view. You get the New England sea breeze and salty air while you eat that delicious seafood.... More

This is a friendly, casual dining place with decent food and great service. You can see the ocean and two lighthouses from about every table. Staff are very friendly. Great appetizers. Only open Thursday-Sunday during winter months.

We visited this on a cold windy, snowy Friday. We were pleasantly welcomed and our server, Nancy, could not have been nicer and more accomodating. Our food was very good and the views were spectacular, even in middle of a long and nasty winter. My husband and I both highly recommend this place and we are so eager to go... More

Tie on your bib and wield your hammer to tuck into two whole lobsters, with baked potato and corn on the cob. Can't go wrong.

I had lobster bisque and my wife had the haddock chowder. Mine was creamy and delicious and hers was quite a treat...a large cut of fish in... More

One of the reasons we go to Maine every year. The LC never disappoints. Always a great meal, breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We've been going there for the last three years, and will be back next year. don't miss this gem of a restaurant.

For being that close to the water the lobster wasn't all that fresh. Prices for off season seemed high

We are sorry to her that you were not thrilled with your visit to Lobster Cove. We do offer the same menu year around as prices for our product stay the same throughout the year. We have a single lobster for 15 bucks with two sides which is a great price for a lobster dinner in any area. We do... More
