“What an experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

First time in Belfast and was taken to Young's by our friends. Our host packed a picnic basket full of table cloths, lobster crackers and all that is required to eat lobsters, napkins, bibs, etc. When we got there the building is like a huge garage open on both ends with lobster tanks lining both sides of the building on the inside. You choose what you want to eat and then take it to a picnic table outdoors where you will sit on the edge of the ocean and eat. So much fun. A definate repeat when we return.

“Fresh, fresh, fresh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

The seafood is very fresh! Lobsters of all sizes. I found this place by accident and was not prepared. It is a tin building right on the water. Extremely casual. Only picnic tables to eat at. Very family oriented. Most people bring picnic baskets with sides and drinks. Price was very reasonable.

“A place you must visit !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The people at Youngs were wonderful ! Very nice and helpful. The atmosphere was too good for words. Sitting on the dock waiting for the lobster to cook while an eagle circled overhead. How can you beat that! Then the lobster was done and it was delicious ! The corn and potato salad were average but everything else made for a wonderful evening

“Do not miss Young's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Ok, I hear Martha Stewart likes this place. You can't blame her. It's as fresh as they come. Clams, lobsters, all things from the cold, cold waters of Maine. We have eaten there twice now and think that if you are in Belfast you simply must eat there. We like to go into town to the very cool hippy dippy coop and get some interesting wine, bread, and perhaps a good salad to serve with our seafood feast. Love to sit out with a harbor view and just chow down on all that freshness. It is a fascinating place.
