Good Food and Atmosphere

Very good food, fresh seafood. Always enjoy my meals here. Bay Village has a family friendly atmosphere.

My family and I ate at The Maine Course. The wait was long for our meal. The food was awful -- the service was awful. Four of us were ill after our meal. Would never recommend.

We wanted to get some takeout to bring home to eat so we stopped here. And that was our first mistake. They had a large party outside - that should have warned us off right away - but you figure - they must be used to a crowd - they are located in a busy shopping center at the shore... More

Facts: *I do not beg. *Our shrimp turnover is as fast as our lobster disallowing "old". * All salads served w/ shrimp receive six 16/20 jumbo shrimp broiled - no exceptions. *15 + 15 + 10 = 40 not 60. Not bad if back to back with a wedding party of 25. * No one is held against their will. More

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
