The staff was super accommodating with my son's peanut allergy. They were friendly and engaging. My wife and I had the hot lobster roll. We live in New England and these were as delicious as any we've tried back home.

The Maine was great. The service is awesome and we had 5 kids with us. The Lobster Roll was outstanding and the other meals were superb. We loved it so much we're going back again for their "Appy Hour."

This place is famous for its lobster rolls and they are... good. Not great, but good. We had both hot and cold and they were both fine. What was great was the sweet potato fries - yummmmm! We ate outside (a better option than a very crowded, small space indoors) and enjoyed the breeze at the same time.

My family and I have enjoyed the food at the Maine Couse since they opened. The menu offers lots of choices and the staff treats people right. We look forward to eating there... again and again.

Went with 4 people, 3 ordered lobster rolls, 2 regular size and I ordered the jumbo roll which the waitress said was twice the size as the regular. She said regular is 4 inch roll and jumbo is 8 inch and double the size. When they came, the jumbo was an inch bigger than the regular and far from full,... More

Please allow me to apologize for your poor experience. Any and all comments re: my servers are utilized as teaching tools to correct so folks will enjoy that all important aspect of their visit. As an fyi all lobster rolls are 6" long. Jumbo's are 8" long. The lobster meat comes from the sweetest parts' i.e. the knuckle and claw.... More

Honestly, a little baffled by the positive reviews after tonight. I wish I could say it must have been a bad night, but after consideration, no. Our meal was a total bust. The service staff was full of a lot of "Ummms," but not much else. Unmotivated and not cheerful, even on a bad night, they should have been more... More

First and foremost let me apologize for your unpleasant experience. Wish I had caught this review sooner. I found your information re: my servers to be useful and will utilize it for training purposes. This server must have been new and fresh out of school which might explain why she didn't know where to get the closest beer. Taste and... More

A delicious meal for the price. I had the famous jumbo lobster roll which was as good as I have had in Maine with a side of sweet potato fries. My son got the fried clam strips with onion rings, the clam strips were obviously fresh and very good. My husband got the fried seafood combination (flounder, shrimp and scallops).... More

We stopped in for lunch and it was ok, there were a few things that would have made it better. I had a Cheeseburger and it was pretty good, unfortunately the roll was way too small and did not match the burger, it was so small it actually looked funny. Beware, the menus are outdated and the small slip of... More

Been here several times before, but seems like have taken a step back in their new location (1301 long beach blvd). On our recent visit, brought our own wine which is nice to be able to do. The staff seemed a little distracted, not focused on delivering their best. They have no plates to share appetizers (not sure why when... More
