This restaurant is really a large metal building semi open to the elements. On a good day you can eat outside and enjoy the atmosphere but on a cool or rainy/windy day it can be a hard place to find a comfortable place to sit and eat. It is interesting to be able to see the lobsters in the tanks, and the staff are willing to tell you a little more about their products and business. This is mainly a business that sells seafood products wholesale etc and has this restaurant as a service. The food is prepared next door in a separate building and then brought to the main building. The prices are very high for the amount of food served. We paid about $60.00 for (1) lobster chowder (1) fish chowder and two average quantity lobster rolls and a soft drink. they do sell various seafood products retail on site....

At Young's we had the best lobster roll of many while traveling in Maine. It was packed with lobster meat!!! We were there on a rainy foggy day with not many people there so maybe they just had extra lobster to use up. By reading some of the reviews perhaps that's why we got so much lobster meat. They also had a special that day of 2 whole lobsters for $16 so my husband ended up ordering that after we ate our lobster rolls. It was so good we couldn't help ourselves. We definitely recommend Young's Lobster Pound for those in the area.

Ordered lobster roll without the roll.
for $16.00 I got maybe, 1/2 cup - 1 cup of cooked lobster meat.
bag of chips.
container of mayo.

Go to Freeport for ample lobster and feel like you got your money's worth.
Read my review on Freeport food.
Skip this place for purchase... Wander it for education.
Too expensive, too little food, you will feel ripped off.

I can't say enough about a family who work so very hard every day for our enjoyment. This is a true Lobster pound that has been in the Young family for a long long time. Beautiful view from the roof top dining room, & yes, BYOB.

In a busy, hectic, techy world....it is a sheer joy to be able to go to a place that is the same today as it ever was....Young's Lobster Pound is one thing and one thing only....the very best place to experience a lobster and clam dinner....ANYWHERE.....if you want fancy....and stuffing....do not come here.... If you want fancy....keep driving....if you want honest, fairly priced PURE seafood. Stop....order....enjoy the wind and the waves and the food. It has been the very same from the time of my grandparents and I expect it to be very much the same for my grandkids.
