We have been here a few times and liked it but today was very disappointed. We ordered 2 well done hamburgers and 2 large fries for our grandsons and for us a seafood platter. I took my grandchildren out to find a table on the deck while my husband stayed inside to listen to our order # and pick it... More

Took a lovely drive to Shaw's in New Harbor with our friends...it is several miles beyond Damariscotta...a short drive from there. Parking was tight, but we found a great spot...you walk upstairs to the restaurant for inside as well as deck dining. You order at the counter...easy and quick. They have a full menu, including shellfish, fish and seafood, chowders,... More

Had a $20 lobster roll that was mediocre at best. There was a good amount of lobster but my bun fell apart on my first bite and the lobster was barely seasoned and I'm pretty sure there was a pea sized amount of mayonnaise on it(not light).My son had the fried shrimp plate. There were plenty of fries but the... More

We have been to Shaw's many times and always make it a stop on our visits to New Harbor. This is self-serve place where you order and pay and then wait for your number to be called. There are many outside picnic tables on the upper and lower decks. The lower deck has a bar and a raw bar, where... More

Located in a great spot with gorgeous view from the outdoor seating on the deck. Has indoor seating too. Watched the fog roll in to the wharf. I got the 1 lb lobster and it was absolutely the best I have ever had. Fresh, warm and so tasty. We ordered ours with slaw and onion rings. Delicious!

Typical Maine seafood shack. Great food and atmosphere. We sat inside because it was raining just a bit. Naturally, as soon as we were served the Sun came out. Inside or out, everyone enjoyed the meal and the ambiance.

We had a small lunch here today. We shared a fried scallop dinner, a blooming onion and each had soup. Onion was amazing!!! Scallops were ok; the breaking was good, but not as sweet as I would expect. CHose the scallop dinner instead of the large side because the same amount of fish with bread, coleslaw and choice of carb... More

My husband grew up in the area and Shaws has become my daughter's favorite place. We actually went twice in one weekend. She loves her sweatshirt and calls it her lucky sweatshirt when she is fishing.

Casual with good food and great views! Sit outside and enjoy Maine through all your senses. A little pricer than I would have expected but a fun treat to enjoy.

Sitting in the sunshine on this wharf, eating lobster, and drinking beer was a decades-old memory, and we were reliving it on a sparkling afternoon in tourist season. This is not fancy dining. Customers sit at a picnic table indoors or out, order from a counter, carry their own food to a table, and clean-up. Entertainment is watching the fishing... More
