Excellent addition to the Scarborough beach area. Terrific Steamers

This is a great spot but they have a frustrating system for seating customers. Call ahead and make a reservation because if you just show up you will be frustrated by the number of parties that arrive and are seated while you stand around...and there's not much room to stand round. The casual atmosphere would seem to be better served... More

We had a late lunch and our server Josh was very friendly and did an excellent job. The lobster roll is made on fresh bread that they get daily. It is on a huge roll. It is definitely recommended. I also had the bread pudding which was also excellent.

lobs, steamers buy by the pound. they will even steam for you. they also offer sides. i bring all of my company down to Bailey's; often call my order in first... then off to Scarborough public landing to eat lobster on the beach. oh, and the view... sunset, boats and clamers. so very Maine!

Really good place to buy fresh lobster and sea food. Very close to our cottage (5mins by car) from Little Miss Cottages. You have a variety of options for sea food lovers. We picker the lobster salad 1 pound with the lobster bisque soup and side dishes.

We live in the area and have been here a few times. I'm sorry to say that the food is below average. The lobster rolls have too much bread and are only half filled with meat that they don't use to sell in the lobster pound. It's the tips of the claws and a little bit of claw meat. They... More

We've been here before and it was better before. It was sunny and hot in the sun and since it was just two of us the put us at a table with no umbrella baking in the sun. We had the lobster roll which was good and a burger which wasn't good. Very under cooked. Don't think there will be... More

Bayley's Lobster Pound (which is different from Bayley's Restaurant which is not on the water) is still fairly new. The pound itself has been there for years and years and always had great lobster rolls and seafood to go at a very fair price. The restaurant has been there for the past couple of years and really seems to be... More

Bayley's Lobster Pound and Bait Shack is serving "To Die for" mussels. Simmered in a wine and butter broth and layered with fresh arugula, it's a meal worth sayin' a last prayer for. So, go ahead and enjoy these amazing delicious bivalves of garlicky goodness. It's worthy goin' to hell for😈! Special Notes: Bayley's Lobster Pound is the market where... More

We are from Maine and certainly not a tourist. We were just charged on 7/4/16 $17.50 for 18 1.5 lbs per lobsters. The price was ridiculously high for lobster pound product that was just boiler. We will not be back and will tell our friends. Tourist beware as the price was a complete rip off for a cooked lobster in... More

We were told about Bayley's from a local while we were staying at Alouette Beach Resort. She said this is where we needed to go. We had 30-35 mph winds and it was a bit cold, but the LOBSTER was soooo good. Waitress gave us a quick what they had and the food arrived within reason. But the wait was... More
