restaurants near camden

We are staying in the Camden, Maine area. How about recommendations for local inexpensive restaurants/lobster pounds in the area. Also stopping at LL Bean on way up...recommendations for lunch in that area or on way up from Boston?

You might think this is crazy, but just got back from 10 days in Camden/Belfast area - in Camden, right down at the harbor is a little free-standing booth in the parking lot called Harbor Dog....DIVINE fish tacos, shrimp tacos and of course, the harbor dog with apple chutney. Grab one, some chips and a drink and sit on the benches to watch the boats or to the park overlooking the harbor...a very inexpensive, delicious and unique lunch, I promise.

I agree, the Harbor dog is not a bad place to grab a lighjt take out lunch.

Right in that same area is "Bayview Lobster" which has been totally rebuilt and expanded this year, we were there 2 weeks ago and had some excellent meals at very reasonable prices. Definitely recommend the Bayview to check out for lunch or dinner..we ate their 4 times in our say we liked it so much

Drive 10 minutes on Route 1 North from downtown Camden - I think it's called McCollough's Lobster - it's picnic style on the water; a pound of lobster was #16. Also, if you take Rte 1 North into Camden, the best lobster roll I've ever tasted (and I had lots while in Maine) is Red's Lobster in Wiscasset - lobster roll on a buttered bun with probably 1 pound of pure lobster meat.

In Freeport there is the Harraseeket Lunch and Lobster Company 3 miles out of town from LLBean but a world a way. Right on the water and lobster as it should be. If you go look on pilings for starfish you will often see quite large one there. Here is link and anyone in town can help you find it. Quite a beautiful location. They only accept cash.

There are also many nice restaurtants right in town just walk around and you will see them. Here is a popular one with great chowder...

But if you really want a feel for Maine drive the 3 miles so you can have the lobster and the harbor all at the same time.

In Camden there are a number of good restaurants.

THis summer we enjoyed the "Bayview Lobster" very much.

THe menu is extensive and at reasonable prices. THe food was excellent and very satisfying.

Highly recommend thatrestaurant in Camden

If you are a true "foodie," head 15 minutes to Rockland/Rockport to Primo's. It is a James Beard award winning restaurant, in an amazing place. You must check it out if you are into high end dining!

You're right, true2beeme - we made the trip to Pemaquid and lunched on lobster rolls at Shaw's - ate on the outside deck right above the harbor where lobster boats were coming in and unloading fresh lobsters - the sky was so blue, it was warm and we looked directly across the little harbor at traps stacked neatly on piers and charming little houses with green grass yards right down to the water...it was so beautiful and such a wonderful memory .
