It's hard to add any more good things than what's already been written here about Young's. I ordered the lobster and clams. They were cooked perfectly. My wife had the fish sandwich. It was also delicious. We've been traveling around Maine this week and have eaten lobster and fish several times but, nothing has been as good as as what we had here. Maybe it's the thrill of picking out your own special lobster, seeing it dipped in the steaming sea water and then enjoying it and the harbor view out on the deck. Whatever it is, this a must stop if you are in the area.

This is a must stop!! Right on the water, very "local" atmosphere. Friendly and a great place for family even when the weather is cold and windy because there is dining on the inside. Our family from age 2 to 65 love to eat here.

What can you say about Young's that hasn't already been said? And it's all true. Young's needs to be on everyone's Gotta Go list. The experience alone is worth the price of the meal. Maine lobster done simple, done right. BYOB, tablecloths, desserts, sides...sit and enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes that are purely Maine.
Go at sunset for spectacular views of Belfast!

The perfect Maine meal/experience--eating steamed lobster and clams at a picnic table outside on the beautiful Belfast harbor. I go every time I'm in the area. The BYOB policy is great also--I could pair my lobster with a very good Maine IPA.

While hiking in Camden Hills State Park, we bumped into other hikers and our discussion brought up a need for a lobster pound recommendation. A family from Augusta told us to go to Young's and we are so happy he did! We've been to Five Islands Lobster Co. and this is just as delicious, although with a different setting.

The lobster shack itself is much larger than FILC, with a large number of lobster tanks. The staff was very friendly and efficient, and we decided to go "all in" and order their special "Bucket List for Two" platter. This consists of 2 1.25lb lobsters, 4 jumbo shrimp, 4 oysters, 2 ears of corn, and a plethora of clams and mussels...all for $49.95 - SUCH A DEAL! If you are 2-4 people, don't pass this one up.

There is an upstairs dining room for poor weather, but outside at the picnic tables is where it's really at. A great view of Belfast harbor and the islands, it is hard to beat!
