This little kiosk,across from the footbridge at Perkins Cove, serves up the best lobster rolls, period. On a frankfurter bun with either drawn butter or mayo or a combo of both, piled high with sweet lobster meat, these lobster rolls delicious. The rolls are accompanied with either cole slaw or chips. You won't find better lobster rolls in the Ogunquit... More

My friend and I just spent three days in Ogunquit and came to this place at the Perkins Cove end of the Marginal Way. People were waiting in line to get into the handful of restaurants next door, but why? This place is a simple takeout shack: you step up and order, and they give you your food. There are... More

My wife and I had our first Lobster Rolls while vacationing in Maine. It was Take out and it was great. We chose the Buttered Roll. They are expensive but well worth the money

Went here because of the positive reviews and were looking for the steamed lobster deal. You go to the window at the shack, put on your order and pay, wait for a bit while taking in the sight of the lovely Perkins Cove, collect your meals when they are ready and eat there or wherever you like (in our case...

This is just a walk up window offering lunch items for take out. Ordered lobster roll prepared with melted butter. Huge portion of large chunks of lobster. Lobster is cold from the fridge. Previous visit l had lobster lightly mixed with mayo and melted butter on the side for dipping, that would be my preference. For the price I would... More

This is a super tiny restaurant shack that is perfect for on-the-go meals, especially lobster. It is also great that they let so many teens have jobs, and their boss is absolutely great. This place is definitely kid friendly-but it doesn't have a sit-down feeling, there is just a little bench across the little street. I love this place, it's... More

Loved this place, the staff was very friendly. It is just a small take out window. I walked over with a friend to pick up Lobster rolls for dinner. They were excellent!! Generously filled with warm tender lobster meat and drizzled with butter. YUM!! You can also get the mayonnaise version as well.

Tiny walk-up window in Perkins Cove..don't miss it. Excellent lobster roll with tail and claw meat (5 oz.) in a toasted roll. I had mine hot in melted butter...yum! And they packaged one separately for me to take home. Small coleslaw with it. Around $18, but well worth it. You have to eat it at the docks, but there are... More

I was expecting the lobster to be warm. It wasn't, but the roll was jam packed. When you factor in $15 for parking in order to get to Perkins Cove, $18.99 ea for two lobster rolls increases to $26 ea. I'd stick with some of the places that have free parking all along Route 1. There isn't that much else... More
