I haven't reviewed this already? Really? And I've been going for years. Yes, it's old, it's lopsided, it's picnic tables and tray service and "listen for your number." So it isn't for everyone. But if you really care about fresh lobster, world class chowder and the best onion rings you'll ever have, you'll deal with the lack of ambiance. Order... More

My husband and I ate there this weekend... for the last time. The food (while fresh) was incredibly greasy and bland. They do not have a children's menu and did not even have milk to offer children. The restaurant sits on the water, but in our opinion, is in desperate need of tlc. the floors are uneven and are falling... More

We came to Markey's (Lobster POOL, not Pound) for the lobster, and it did not disappoint. We visited late in the afternoon so all the big lobsters were long gone, but we got a few nice mid-sized ones. They were boiled perfectly. We really appreciated that they cracked and split them for us, so digging out the lobster was a... More

We stopped here as we tooled around New England - to bring my spouse up to 50 states visited. That said, we LOVE lobster, and had to pick between Markey's and Brown's. My wife had cherry stone clams for the very first. time. Delicious! The odd? We wanted female lobsters, hoping to get the roe. They asked if wanted the... More

We stop at Markey's Lobster POOL either on our way to KPT, ME or on our way back home to Michigan, and they have a delicious lobster roll. They pack the bun so full of succulent lobster that you have to eat some of it with a fork! Lobster is dressed with just enough mayo and lettuce. Be aware no... More

Made a drive up there after the Labor Day weekend and Lobsterfest, Enjoyed twin lobsters for just 14.95 and it was excellent- The lobster was cooked to perfection and the crack and split them for you for easy access and eating. If it weren't a 3 hour drive- I would make this trip every week- Well worth it!

My girlfriend and I had fried clams, oysters, lobster, steamers and onion rings for dinner. It was outstanding with the exception of the fried clams. They were just OK. But let's talk about that lobster. They cooked it to perfection. It was succulent and I wished I had ordered another one!!! The onions rings were very, very good and we... More

Enjoyed some delicious steamers, fried seafood, and onion rings. When the lobster was ready, it seemed undercooked. We notified the manager who said it wasn't their fault, it must have been a soft shelled lobster and next time we should ask for a hard shelled lobster. Bad lobster and bad manager response.
