LOBSTERS SHIPPED OVERNIGHT‏
For those unable to visit but crave the sweetest lobster around, we ship live lobster overnight.
SEAFOOD BY THE POUND
Fresh Caught Hard Shell Lobster
Our lobsters are supplied by local lobstermen. The waters in our area are said to be some of the coldest and deepest on the coast of maine. Ideal conditions for great lobster. Cooked lobsters are prepared in salt water.
$Market
Fresh Caught Soft Shell Lobster
Known as "shedders" they’re very sweet, and easy to eat. In most cases you can just tear the shells apart without need of any tools. They do, however, tend to have less meat in the claws. So, if you’re a big “claw meat person”, you may want to stick with hard shells. Cooked lobsters are prepared in salt water.

We’ve traveled to Maine year after year and one of our favorite eateries is Five Islands Lobster Company in Georgetown, ME. This is not far from Bath , ME or Boothbay, ME. Absolutely worth the trip; you can thank me later. This is definitely Maine!

My husband and I had a terrific lobster dinner here. Remember you are outside...bring bug spray and any alcohol you care to enjoy. That said, my husband's 2 lb+ lobster was the highlight of his entire visit to Maine.

Honestly I expected better. I had high expectations for this place. When we arrived (prob around 6pm) it wasn't too busy and able to order quickly - but they were already out of the 1.25-1.5lb lobsters and had no more soft shells. So we opted...More

Great setting for a simple but excellent fresh lobster casual dinner. Pick up a bottle of wine and some cheese to start at the nearby Five Islands Farms market and it's pretty close to idilic.

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.
