Lobster rolls I have had. Great toasted bun filled with lobster meat. Pay the extra buck for warm butter. Comes with a nice Thai cold slaw and pickled green beans and potato chips. My wife had the hot dog and also loved it. Nice seating...More

Delicious food, casual atmosphere, and BYOB if you like. The most value for money. The smoked mussels were delicious and the lobster was exquisite.

Small menu but what they have is great, especially since they bake their own bread. I got the curried chicken salad and my husband got the crab roll, both were delicious. Nice outdoor seating area, very charming.

We had the best clam chowder ever. I mean, really, ever in the history of clam chowders. The lobster roll was ok. I would gladly have a gallon of the clam chowder and ignore everything else.

We enjoyed their lobster & crab rolls the best along our trip up the coast of Maine. Served with coke slaw (average) & pickled green beans (delicious!!). Everything is very fresh

Friendly quick service, and made to order so always fresh. Had the half crab / half lobster roll. Quality for the price on a nice toasted roll. Great in town location for a quick bite near the Farnsworth.

This is my favorite lobster shack. It's not a secret, but it' not well known. It is right on the water, and if you order the Cadillac Lobster Roll you will be lucky if you can eat the whole thing. It's not cheap, but it...More

Little road side lobster place with great food, very reasonable prices, good beer selection and atmosphere. You stand in line outside and place your order. Enjoyed meeting other visitors while waiting. The lobster was great as was the lobster chowder. I highly recommend!

I am not the owner but one of the reviewers. The patio has a sidewalk on two sides. I suspect it would be easy enough to have dogs there. If having a place that would accommodate dogs, I would recommend Waterman's Beach... More

We are a downtown take out truck. We feature the freshest seafood directly from my sons lobster boat! We make everything ourselves and hand pick our lobster and crab. We have awards for our lobster sandwich and also our chowder. We also offer pulled pork and roast turkey salad for sandwiches. We do many soups and chowders always served with our own corny bread. Salads of local greens and veggies that include our own dressings. Homemade baked beans with hot dogs! Daily specials. See you soon.
