Description: Enjoy lobster, steamers, lobster rolls, chowder and a whole lot more in a friendly, casual atmosphere. Live lobsters caught by local lobstermen wait in tanks filled with ocean water coming straight from the cove. Choose your size and two sides. For all the taste without the work, have a lobster roll any way you like it...a quarter pound single, double-stuffed, triple, or an entire pound on a buttery toasted roll with or without mayo. The lobster wrap and lobster BLT are also recently added favorites. Homemade chowder made from an old family recipe is a great way to start your meal, there's no thickening flour just the perfect combination of clams, fish, potatoes, onions and spices in a milk and cream base.The "Shack" has been owned and operated by the Evans family since the 1980s and is proud to serve the hottest chowder and the coldest beer in town. Let Jason, his family and his crew provide you with a true Maine eating experience in the oldest restaurant in Perkins Cove...

“Freshest & Most Delicious Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

We have been going here our entire lives every summer & it keeps getting better. Sides are now included with the main entrees. No fried food - just delicious offerings such as their fish sandwich, lobster roll, clam chowder, steamed oysters and of course the BEST steamed lobster. You'll always get the freshest seafood with a smile. No reservations ever needed.

PS They also offer great hamburgers so non-seafood lovers can join their friends.

“Amazing Lobster Roll Lunch Combo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

My husband and I visited the Lobster Shack for lunch one day while vacationing in Perkins Cove and found that their lobster roll lunch comb (with clam chowder) was amazing! The lobster rolls had a great buttery flavor and toasted roll ... not too big but they don't skimp on the lobster meat. The clam chowder had amazing flavor and whole belly clams in it, not chopped clam bits. Definitely worth the price & the staff was really friendly.

“Perfect Chowder, Great FIsh Sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

I have been searching for a clam chowder made the old fashioned way - meaning not so think you could stand your spoon up in it, and found it last week at the Perkins Cove Lobster Shack. If you want thick chowder, don't order it here. But if you want to try what real chowder should taste like, you should give this place a try. And to boot, the fish used in the Haddock sandwich was probably the best (and least expensive) piece of fish I had in two weeks on Cape Cod and in Maine. Fabulous.
