My husband doesn't eat seafood, so a trip to Brown's was supposed to be a treat on this 4th of July weekend and the one thing I asked to do during an entire weekend of house projects!! We drove about 30 minutes to Browns, bought beer down the street at the convenience store and were even fortunate enough to find... More

I like going to places highlighted on the travel channel or food network. And this made the tastiest chowdown list top 100. We decided to go to a beach in Maine on a visit to Boston and stopped here along the way. The food was not bad. And the service was okay. But the food was small portions for an... More

Ate here on a Sunday afternoon just before Summer season. Ordering is a little confusing to the first timer: you order any fried food at a window outdoors. There's a separate counter inside to order steamers, and another to order boiled lobster (but you can order fried food where you order the lobster). After we figured this out, things went... More

If you are even close and want to enjoy a casual lobster dinner this is the place. Fill your cooler with your choice of beverage and get ready to dig in. Go inside and stand in line next to the live lobster tank and Chuck will find your dinner weigh it and then boil it to perfection. They cut the... More

Overpriced. Chowders were bland. Lobster bisque was cold. Long wait. Almost everything on menu was fried. Won't go back.

After seeing a show on this restaurant and a competitor across the road, we tried their competitor a few years ago, and liked it so much we returned there without giving Brown's a chance. I confess I'm a bit partial to the other place. Having said that, there were things I liked about Brown's. For example, I like the big... More

The food isn't horrible, but you get little measly portions (particularly if you get a seafood combo platter). The food is expensive so you would think you would get more than what you do. I ended up ordering a pizza from Tripoli's after because I was still hungry after eating here. Totally not worth your time or money (and you... More

After reading good things about the lobster rolls we went to Brown's for the first and last time today. The lobster roll was average at best. We split an order of the crab cakes which were deep fried, almost burned and terrible, not a tiny lump of crab meat to be found. Two sodas, two small lobster rolls and two... More

Went to Brown's last night with a large group of friends and we pretty much all agreed that the food was overpriced for what it is! Those who had lobster said that it was good. Those of us that ordered other items all agreed that they were overpriced ( $20 for Fish and Chips), portions were small ( the lobster... More

So if you are looking for a cheap lobster experience, this is not it. Go to the grocery store or buy them direct from the lobster man if you want cheap. The first thing you MUSt know before you get there is BRING CASH!! There is an ATM on site for a $ 2 fee. For a family of four,... More
