We had a party of ten. My father-in-law uses a walker, and they put us on the second floor. Had a heck of a time climbing the stairs. I must say though wait was long it was worth it once the food did arrive. If we go back they should put.us on the second floor again.

Had a little bit of a wait, but well worth it. Got seated upstairs and had awesome views of the ocean and York Beach. Lots of windows upstairs for spectacular ambiance. They had the twin lobster special for $25, can beat it. Had a cool bar upstairs too if you just wanted to come for some drinks and relax.

We love the Lobster Cove! We rarely go in the summer when York gets very busy with tourists but we frequent in the off season. The staff is wonderful! I love lobster and they have one of the best Lobster Rolls in town. It's always fresh and I always start off with a cup of chowder to have a true... More

We arrived late afternoon and had to try a Maine lobster. On the advice of the hosts at Inn at Tanglewood Inn, we decided to walk(about 1/2 mile) to Lobster Cove for dinner. We shared a lobster with corn on the cob and lots of butter followed by blueberry pie. Very good and reasonably priced. Go early they get busy... More

My family and I eat there for 2 breakfasts and a dinner. It was very clean and the staff was always pleasant. The prices weren't bad for a tourist town. The food was good....not out of the park but descent. I had the lobster benedict for breakfast and crab cakes for a dinner app. They were wonderful.

Pleasant and efficient staff. Wonderful french fries. Generous lobster roll but I just didn't find it all that good - very little taste to it. I think it needed butter or mayo or both! My companions liked their lunches which included another roll, lobster bisque and haddock sandwich. They each declared theirs delicious.

The view is fab from the top floor and the staff are nice. The BLT was good but the lobster rolls were just so so. There was a 15 minute wait because "the kitchen was backed up". Seemed like a short-staffed holiday weekend kind of experience.

The motel we stayed at gave us a coupon for $7 towards breakfast. The cost of breakfast is about $7 if you have eggs, meat and potato but more if you add coffee ($1.99) and/or orange juice ($1.99+). It seems that ours was not the only motel giving out the coupon for breakfast so there was a wait every morning... More

Sorry to hear about the mix ups! Yes, it is crazy busy for breakfast as we have many regulars & also the motel coupons but that is to be expected on the beach in July as the view and food are both great! We do hope you will return on your next visit! More

We had dinner here one evening, took the trolley from our hotel at Stones Throw. The seafood was excellent, we all had something different. The room was very crowded and noisy but we had nice time! You can eat inside or outside on a large deck. You will enjoy eating here.
