One of my all-time favorite lobster pounds. Perfect location right off the dock. You can see the owner carrying fresh lobster straight off the boat to the restaurant and lobster tank. Can’t get any fresher than that! I couldn’t decide between the crabster or lobster...roll, so I got one of each. Both were so flavorful and delicious with lots and lots of meat.More

I came to Maine for a long weekend to get my Vitamin Sea and seafood fix. The weather was spectacular and Erica’s location was just perfect for gazing at the boats and bay. The place was busy but the orders were handled very efficiently. Although...the food came out quickly it didn’t matter. I could have enjoyed the view for hours! After reading many of the reviews here I opted for the crabster roll. Plain but delicious on a nicely crisped bun. I was disappointed it wasn’t a little bit bigger. The coleslaw was amazing with a light mayo dressing. There were so many choices. Since this was my big seafood splurge of the trip, I took an order of scallops and onion rings to go for dinner. They didn’t disappoint! They only take cash and bring change for the vending machine, which is the only option for drinks. People ‘in the know’ were smart to bring their own beer or wine, along with folding chairs. My two meals cost $40, and that was with rounding up for a tip. Erica’s is off the beaten path but convenient to many of the fabulous hiking opportunities in Harpswell.More

The best seafood chowder ever! The fish was perfectly cooked and included scallops, lobster, clams, shrimp and white fish in a perfect broth that wasn’t fishy. What a great find. And I don’t normally like chowder!

We Took a cooler with a couple of beers some of my brides homemade gazpacho soup and headed over to Erica‘s seafood for a fantastic dinner where we got lobster rolls and sweet potato fries to go with the goodies that we brought . Taylor...our server was excellent. She was so friendly she even directed me to the nearest gas station which I needed desperately after our meal. The view was spectacular and the value was equally so if you’re down this way you must stop in.More

Erica’s Seafood is very good. Next door to the Dolphin Marina, it had a crowd almost just as big as the sit down. The food comes out quick. The Lobster Roll was good. The coleslaw was a favorite.

Let me start by saying the young lady working on this semi-busy day was phenomenal. Also I was happy.to see they were taking care of their employees and keeping people back/encouraging can ahead. This was my second time coming here and I was excited to...share this place and the view. I will have to say I got the Crabster roll on both visits. Both times it was unbelievably good and I loved it. The person with me got the friedseafood combo (Fish and Shrimp). It didn't look good when they brought it out and he said it was dry and had no flavor. I can understand all this as we are in a pandemic and everything is not as good as it can be. However, the part I could not overlook was being at a seafood shack in Maine and being served popcorn shrimp for a price that would not have indicated they would be that small. They were also dry and not tasty. We both agreed this was one of the worst fried seafood plates we have had. Definitely go here but stick with the lobster or crabster roll. The ambience is pure Maine too. Worth the visit but don't get the shrimp. 🦐More

We visited the place with our kids. They offer a variety of rolls but you can get steamed lobster too. You can eat outside or take out. The crew is super friendly. A brave dog that survived cancer is quietly watching over you. We really...enjoyed dinning out there. We recommend that place and we would like to come back.More

I had three lobster rolls while visiting Maine on vacation from three different places and hands down this was the best one! So much lobster meat, perfectly toasted bun, no mayo so you could really taste the lobster. It's right on the water next to...a working dock. The view was spectacular! I would highly recommend Erica's!More

Such a great place for so many reasons, here are a few... The view of the water, marina and islands, outdoor casual seating (tables, grass or rocks (like I did), the staff was very friendly and most of all...I've had lots of lobster rolls all...over Maine from North to South and this is by far the best I've had...why? Because it's simple and plentiful. I had the Crabster Roll which was part lobster part crab. It had more meat on it than I've ever had on a roll before. And the best part, there was nothing mixed in with the meat, just meat so you could taste every little delicious detail of the flavor and the ocean. Most places mix the meat with mayo or butter which can be good too, but that's how they all do it. Until you experience it without any sauce on it, you don't know what you're missing. Erica's toasted the bun in butter and that's all I needed. It was so good! I can't wait to come back on my future trips, it will always be a lunch or dinner stop for me.More

Last month the hard shell lobsters were $7 a pound. The soft shells were $6 per pound. Then they charge $1 each lobster to cook them. It was definitely the cheapest and best lobster we had!! They only take cash.
