Oddly enough, I haven't eaten at Mainely Lobster until March 27th. I've driven past Mainely Lobster maybe four times each yeare, for the entire 25 years they have been in this location but never stopped to eat. The reviews were great, and I was traveling through and the timing was right. I wished I'd found Mainely Lobster years ago. The... More

I love their fresh seafood. The fisherman's platter is so good. I also love their cole slaw. The negative parts was the dinner rolls were microwaved and turned to hockey pucks after two minutes. It also feels like you are dining in a doctors office. But the seafood is awesome.

We actually looked on Trip Advisor for places to visit for a lovely meal - we were not disappointed. We were able to seat ourselves. It was moments later the wait staff came over - got us beverages and took our order. We both had lobster !! It came out hot and appropriately quick. The other dishes others ordered smelled... More

The Adirondack North Country is hardly the place one would expect a full bore seafood restaurant, but here it is. Fine dining it is not, fine food it is. Mainely Lobster is all about seafood, fresh seafood.The waitstaff is friendly and helpful as soon as you enter the building. Check the menu on the website and Google for more information.... More

Visited here 2 different times with my large family and was surprised by the quality and quantity of seafood. Great fresh halibut, oysters, clams, lobster and shrimp delivered promptly from the docks to their kitchen. Friendly, experienced waitress was a plus.

Me and a friend were looking for a restaurant to eat on our second night in Plattsburgh. We had hit a home run the night before at Mickey's So we consulted tripadvisor for another one. The reviews for Mainely Lobster were very good. So it was between Mainly Lobster and Anthony's. We chose Mainely Lobster. When We got there I... More

The fried clams were excellent, fresh not frozen. We also had the poutine, which was excellent. The fries were homemade. Prices were reasonable. Service was promp and friendly. If I ever visit the area again, I will definitely eat here again.

This was another tripadvisor find and we have to agree with the other high ratings. We learned that the fresh seafood arrives from Maine on Mondays and Thursdays, and we were lucky enough to stop in for lunch on a Thursday. We immediately noticed that the staff was very friendly and seemed to have a good time working together. We... More
