Stopped for the hot lobster roll for lunch, and was not disappointed. We both got the jumbo size, and it was both overflowing with lobster, and absolutely delicious!! Loved it.

There were five of us in our party and four of us ordered the same thing--a burger--with varying degrees of doneness. Nobody got the right burger. The one person who just can't eat a rare burger asked for it to be sent back. The waitress was confused..."What do you want us to do to it?" "Make it well-done!" With attitude,... More

Went here for a casual dinner and took a bottle of wine- felt very out of place. This is a very kid/family place with tables outside. We were given a corkscrew to open our wine. Water and all drinks served in paper cups. The menu has lots of stuff for kids. The lobster roll was enjoyed by my partner, I... More

We ate lunch at the Maine Course during our long weekend in LBI in July 2015. All I wanted was a Lobster Roll while down the shore and we found this resturant on Trip Advisor. Based upon the great reviews we decided to check it out. We were not disappointed! The Maine Course offers Lobster Rolls two ways - hot... More

We went to the Main Course for lobster rolls. At the last minute I decided to have popcorn shrimp but my wife had the lobster roll. But, first about the location and the setting. It is located on the second level of a kind of shopping center on the corner of 9th and Long Beach Boulevard. It is very small.... More

Back on LBI at one of our favorite places. Just had a great lunch with the family and in-laws. Once again the food and service was awesome. The tuna seared salad was a hit. This is a must visit on LBI and is located in the charming Bay Village. We'll be back, next time for dinner as we joined the... More

I traveled here yesterday from out of town to visit with a few friends. We decided to go here for dinner. The place was very busy and the staff was beyond exceptional. They knew what to do and how to stay on pace with the crowd flow. The only recommendation I do have is if you get the shrimp dinner... More

We spent many weekends in Long Beach Island (LBI) since our daughter and her husband have a ocean front house there. We recently visited The Maine Course Seafood New England Style at Schoner's Wharf in Beach Haven and was disappointed of the limited menu it offered. Most of the dishes are fried seafood and the chowder was nothing to write... More

Waited 10 minutes before we even got greeted and received menus. Server had no knowledge of the menu ! She seemed like she wasn't even trained. Portions are so small for the fried greasy food. Lower your prices...won't be returning here.
