Best lobster pound

What's the best lobster pound in or near Bar Harbor? We like the type that uses the sea water to boil the lobster to get that sweet briny taste. Where do the locals go?

Also, a word of caution. Don't be so eager to find out where the locals go. Better to simply ask which is a good lobster pound. There are no secret places that only the locals know about. And often a local makes the decision about where to eat based on things like how much they like the guy who owns it or who they are related to or whose kid is working there that summer or how far the drive is from their home -- things that are not of any real concern to you.

I've been to Trenton Bridge, Thurston's, and Beals. You get about the same quality lobster for about the same price at any of them. But I think I preferred the view and the clams at Beals.
