Very good place to have your first or fiftieth lobster! Cute little harbor area, fast efficient and helpful staff. Prices very reasonable. Sweet corn not worth it at all, but I didn't come for the corn! Georgetown Island is a gem and beaches at Reid...State Park are amazing!More

Good steamers but NO ONION RINGS. Staff shortages were reported to be the cause. Five Islands has been awarded a top 10 rating for their lobster rolls and deserves the review. We usually get their lobster. We will return next Year and call first.

Staff was friendly and kept line moving, lobsters were fresh as could be and perfectly cooked. They weren’t serving onion rings because of staff shortages, which we had read online before going. My only real complaint is that there weren’t many tables out of the...sun and most were taken up by only two or three people when they could seat several more but people refused to scoot down and share a table. Not their fault but it was really annoying. A shade sail over the larger seating area would have been awesome. Also, be aware, the only restrooms available were porta potties at the far end of the parking lot. (Nothing to clean hands with in there, they were kind of yucky.)More

Had a delicious lunch that was super fresh and reasonable priced to boot! We had crab cake roll and a fried fish sandwich. Very fresh and served with fries or other items available.

Terrific place for whole lobbies and rolls. The fry shack has excellent rings and clams, along with fish sandos, burgers, etc. The ice cream shack is sometimes open - hit or miss. The view is unparalleled, you eat at picnic tables right on the dock...and can view the lobster and fishing boats at work. This place gets a lot of press coverage and it is deserved. A must visit!More

We had gotten lobster rolls and a whole boiled lobster - both were amazing! One of the best lobster rolls I’ve had, tender lobster meat with light sauce, split bun (vs roll). Whole lobster prices super reasonable.

One of the best lobster rolls on the Maine coast. Enjoyed the fried scallops and haddock chowder too. Very friendly and efficient staff. Complete with an incredibly picturesque setting.

Our first taste of Maine was the Five Islands Lobster Company. Could not have asked for a better experience. Got whole lobster, steamers and Haddock chowder. Staff was so friendly and took the time to show us ho to eat a lobster. Definitely a perfect...start to our vacation. Friends recommended it on our way from Portland to Camden and it was well worth it!More

The food was just ok with small portions except for the lobster roll and for the price it should have been much better. I will say that if you get the $42 lobster roll it was the biggest one I've seen. I did get one...for my daughter and she said it was very good. The place also has a nice view .More

We come here a few times during our visits to Maine and the lobster is always great! We decided to order the scallops last visit and boy oh boy - they were outstanding! We actually went back a second time just for them! It's a...lobster shack - outside seating only and there is a unique way of ordering, with two separate locations - one for lobsters/steamers and another for the fried stuff, so your order may not all come out at once. In reality, the view you get here is worth the trip - classic Maine, rocky coast, small, wooded islands surrounded by fishing boats, gorgeous. A perfect view and the two things we like - lobster and scallops are so delicious that we will always continue to come back here.More

This place is the best. No frills. No tacky tourist traps. Just authenticity. The boats are working as you order and munch on delicious food, just the way it was meant to be served. Great staff, always a pleasure. Only drawback was no T shirts...in my size, so If any staff are reading this, a large would do fine and I’ll send cash/check/Venmo and I’ll rep that thing around on the regular! Keep up the great work, can’t wait to stop again.More

Love this place! The view is outstanding! I had the largest lobster I have ever eaten. It was so sweet, although it did take me a long time to work my way through the hard shell.

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.
