Lobster Roll is excellent as were the half-dozen oysters. Nice local beer selection. The outdoor seating is nice to take in the local atmosphere.

My family and I visited the Lobster Shack as the last stop in Maine before we went to the airport in Boston. We had the best lobster rolls of the entire trip here. SO GOOD!

It’s a shack with perfect seafood! You choose your lobster, and they will cook it for you. Simple and amazing! Inside it’s small, so cute and cozy, you pay for the food, very very friendly staff will bring it out. Had the whole lobster, lobster...More

Went into this tiny picnic-style place on Perkins Cove on a chilly early October evening and had chowder and steamers with my wife. Perfect. Must be a crazy busy place in the summer.

We chose to eat here while in the area. It’s for the tourists to get a fairly quick meal. I had the special clam chowder and lobster roll. The chowder was thinner than any I’ve ever had and really didn’t taste like clams. I didn’t...More

Enjoy lobster, steamers, lobster rolls, chowder and a whole lot more in a friendly, casual atmosphere. Live lobsters caught by local lobstermen wait in tanks filled with ocean water coming straight from the cove. Choose your size and two sides. For all the taste without the work, have a lobster roll any way you like it...a quarter pound single, double-stuffed, triple, or an entire pound on a buttery toasted roll with or without mayo. The lobster wrap and lobster BLT are also recently added favorites. Homemade chowder made from an old family recipe is a great way to start your meal, there's no thickening flour just the perfect combination of clams, fish, potatoes, onions and spices in a milk and cream base.The "Shack" has been owned and operated by the Evans family since the 1980s and is proud to serve the hottest chowder and the coldest beer in town. Let Jason, his family and his crew provide you with a true Maine eating experience in the oldest restaurant in Perkins Cove...
