We tried around five places for lobster rolls while in Bath. While the view is amazing, in terms of food it was unremarkable. The lobster was fresh, as it was at most places we went to. Medium fill of lobster, medium to high price. Because...More

Order your lobster roll, fried oysters, or whole lobster at the window and eat it right on the wharf. Can't get anything more quintessential Maine than that. Do it! It's a must.

Loved the 3lb lobster and enjoyed devouring it sitting outside overlooking the water. We watched the lobster boats unload lobster and knew how fresh it was. Would have liked it split and claws broken but all in all a great return visit!

outdoor picnic style tables on a wharf with spectacular views watch lobster persons bring the lobster up for shipment. Lobster cooked perfectly and served with drawn butter. Corn varies... potatoes are good.

Wow - $20 for a lobster roll (actually in a bun literally the size of a hot dog roll) - about 8 oz of lobster and some potato chips. Overhyped, over-priced.

I've been to tons of lobster shanties and this one is just perfect. It has the look, the nice staff and the great lobster rolls. What's not to like?

Hi, You can contact the town and they should be able to confirm the date. Lobstering is part of the economy as is the restaurant business. Look forward to joining you there.

They closed on Columbus Day. In fact, they are only open weekends from Labor Day to season end. I can't wait to go again. SOOOO GOOD!
