The Lobster Shack is tiny and quaint, located smack-dab in the middle of Perkins Cove. Hands-down, it serves the best lobster rolls and chowder in Ogunquit--perhaps even in all of New England. During peak times, you may have a bit of a wait to get a table, but if the weather is nice there is outdoor seating close by, so... More

We decided to walk the Marginal Way from the Ogunquit Beach starting point. It started raining when we were half way on the Marginal Way but that didn't stop us for enjoying the beautiful scenery and arriving in Perkins Cove. We walked around and wanted a light lunch so we went into the Lobster Shack which was so quaint and... More

Why else do you come to Maine? Besides the beaches the food here is the best for seafood lovers. I didn't need the nice restaurant to find great food here. It's all about the freshness and quality here. They do simple great nothing fancy just great.

Can't say enough about this place. We ate lunch there and the chowder was fabulous along with the lobster roll. Very cozy inside, serves beer and wine. At first you would think it is a take out place (which it can be) but we stayed and ate inside. Best lunch while in Ogunquit.

Casual dining of very fine lobster roll, had the double roll, very tasty meat. Friendly counter service and order came up quickly. Totally no complaints and next time we are here will definitely revisit. After completing travels around New England then I can hand on my heart state this place served up the best lobster roll anywhere.

We found this place accident as it was one of the few still open on the last weekend of the season and on a rainy day it was relatively quiet so we only had to queue for a few minutes. The service was so warm and friendly and the chowder and the lobster rolls were amazing and the best we... More

Description
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...
