Sometimes we just get a big order of their hand cut onion rings, but mostly we go for the Haddock and chips. The whole fried clam plate is to die for as well. You won't find better seafood takeout in the area. Service is fast and friendly too.

Location is off the main road and hidden. The staff were very friendly and helpful. You order your food inside and either take it to go or eat outside.

Love getting the fresh huge shrimp platters for holidays and parties. Best shrimp I ever had. Clams are cleaned through a multi cleaning process so they are tender sweet and no sand!!! They will boil and steam your fresh seafood there or take home and cook yourself. Freshest seafood anywhere!!!

My companion's mom is a regular, so she ordered for us. Scallops, whole clams, cod, and fish chowder were on our lunch menu. Served alongside were... More

We ordered 4 lobsters (1.5 lbs ) each and 2.5 lbs of Steamers. They cooked them for free and all was delicious. How can you complain, they do the cooking and cleanup is a breeze, just throw all in the trash. You can also eat there on picnic tables. Great seafood!

We are never disappointed at the Lobster Barn. Call in your order and it will be ready when you arrive. I enjoy the clam chowder and always joke that we should buy a gallon of it. I love their fried clams and fried oysters.

We always get items to go but you can also eat outside. They have the best fried seafood. Always fresh and delicious. And they also have fresh seafood to take home and cook yourself.
