Steamer clams were fresh, sweet and clean. Staff was extremely friendly - always a great supply and a nice spot on the point. Next time we'll try the crabs, sand crabs are the local preference we're told.

Unfortunately, the food service, which was outdoors on the shore, is no longer available. However, the freshest seafood from the sea is there for your taste buds. The locale is so gorgeous it would be hyperbole if I said any more. Watching lobster boats come in to unload, or the bait truck coming is an activity you won't see anywhere... More

They don't have the restaurant anymore but it is a good place to buy lobsters. About 3 miles north (closer to Brunswick) there is during summer a little takeout or sit outside place for lobster rolls that is good.

Alas, no more takeout at Allen's Seafood ... head to Erica's instead. Still a great place to buy lobsters, clams, etc. but you do have to take them home to cook.

Great service, exciting to watch the lobster coming right off the boats. Ordered up 10 cooked lobsters to take back to the cottage. Great service, value, and product. Authentic atmosphere. Don't go expecting anything but good ole boys working hard. Rather spend my money here than at tourist trap eateries with horrible mark up.

Small shack on the water. Stopped here with my aunt, uncle and husband. They seemed to get a good amount of business for their little spot. The view is beautiful as you sit at the picnic tables and nosh away on your meal. Three of us had the lobster roll, while my uncle had the fried clam strips. They were... More

We ate a lunch here during our visit to the area and also went back to purchase lobsters to take back to Mass. They were the freshest lobsters we ever had! our neighbors at ome shared them and all agreed on that. The location is not fancy but the people are friendly and accomodating! The views are wonderful!
