Located in Ogunquit, Maine, in the center of Perkins Cove, Footbridge Lobster is the little red building with a not so little love for lobster. We are best known for our fresh 5-ounce lobster rolls but have plenty of other delicious seafood to please every age!

I parked at Ogunquit Beach and the hike towards this shack was worth it! Everything is fresh here from the morning catch lobster to the crispy fries. They pride themselves on the best lobster rolls (which is true) but what they don’t brag about (which...I will for them) is their amazing customer service! The owner Chris is so kind and welcoming (and he remembers you at each visit!) They closed at 8PM and I ran there at 8:05PM and they still took my order and took their time to make my meal with just as much love as if I came when they weren’t closing!More

The tiny on-the-go restaurant is nestled in an amazing lobstering dock with the oldest draw bridge in operation. The lobster roll did not disappoint one bit. Very generous portion of lobster and it was to die for. We spoke with the owner, Chris’s, and he...said that he catches everything he cooks in a daily basis. Highly recommend!!More

Been going here for years. This time was there on a Thursday at 1130am. Not crowded. Fried clam strips were way over fried. Dry, shrieked and no taste. Also, serving portion seems to be getting smaller. I understand the high prices, but they need to...pay better attention to quality.More

This place is the freshest biggest juiciest lobster roll we’ve found in ogunquit. Reasonably priced and never disappoints. Low key in Perkins Cove at the foot of the bridge, grab a roll and stroll the cove and bridge. Easy and a treat for us for...the past 12 years. We make the drive for hundreds of miles for this roll alone. Never disappointed. This is now a family tradition.More

We’ve been going to Ogunquit for years, have even stayed at the Auberge on the cove, but had never tried Footbridge Lobster. Husband wanted his first lobster roll of the season, we walked Marginal Way to Perkins cove. You order at the window, it’s take...out only, but there are benches nearby where you can sit. We got there early, around 11:30, our timing was perfect. Husband loved his lobster roll and delicious onion rings. I opted for a hot dog ( not a seafood lover ). Hot dog cooked on the grill, was very good. They also sell beer, seltzers and frozen drinks. We sat on a bench enjoying our food and drink and people watching. Highly recommend!More

We saw Footbridge Lobster in a YouTube video reviewing the lobster grilled cheese sandwich. We decided we had to try it and…Wow! It was great! Of all the lobster we had while in Maine, this was the meal we keep talking about. The lobsters go...straight from the boat to the kitchen! Incredible!More

Hands down the BEST and biggest lobster roll! Large portion of fresh, tender and sweet lobster and the bun was also exceptional.

I've been going to Ogunquit for years and never tried Footbridge Lobster. I can't believe what I was missing out on! Truly the best lobster roll. Also the staff is very sweet and welcoming. No need to go elsewhere. I'll see you when I'm back...in OGT! <3More

A spectacular amount of lobster in the lobster roll (it had to have been almost a whole lobster!) and the tenderness of the lobster meat made this roll truly amazing. The view from Perkins Cove is gorgeous! A perfect spot. Highly recommend!

Excellent lobster roll and steamed whole lobsters!! The woman working recommended trying the lobster roll with a mix of mayo and melted butter and WOW. So good ! Sounded different but so glad I tried it . The whole steamed lobster was a great deal,...2 (1 1/4 LB) lobsters for $29. Can’t beat that. ExcellentMore

On our quest for the best lobster roll, this was the winner. We ordered it hot with butter on Texas Toast and it was amazing!

I guess we hit them on an off day. This was by far the worst lobster roll we ate during our trip. And we ate quite a few. The meat was tough and the bread wasn’t toasted. A shame because they aren’t cheap!

Whenever we visit Ogunquit, we have learned to head for Footbridge Lobster for lobster rolls during our visit! While they advertise a 5 ounce serving of lobster, it is considerably more and each bite is fantastic. Last week we visited family on a rainy evening....Not wanting to eat outside at a restaurant, we decided to order takeout from Footbridge. The rain stopped in time for us to walk there and put in the order! In only a few minutes we had our buttered, warm lobster rolls, along with a cheeseburger, grilled cheese and bacon grilled cheese for the rest of the family, who had already enjoyed lobster during the week. We will return next time!More

This is take out only so you can sit on a bench or find a picnic table. We loved the lobsters, perfectly cooked. Hubby was happy that they also serve beer. No public drinking so bring a copy of you're a rule breaker. Our friends...recommended the lobster roll as being fantastic.More
