Once again, we were not disapointed, three times in one week! Bring a table cloth, your favorite spirits and your sun glasses. Relax and enjoy!

“THIS is the real deal. Authentic Maine, for lobster lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

This is the real deal. Wet cement floors, a strong aroma of lobster, picnic tables, smelly bathrooms, poor drink selection (you can bring your own), lots of locals, out of the way and a bit hard to find. You go up to a counter, order your lobster meal, and wait for them to call for you. Heads and shoulders above the lobster dives that cater to buses full of tourists. This place is a lobster distributor, with the restaurant being a side business. Breathtaking views of the Belfast harbor from the deck. If you love lobster, and want to experience authentic old Maine, go to the trouble to find this place. If you don't want lobster, go somewhere else, as their other menu options are poor. Don't bring your kids here unless they already love lobster.

“The Finest Maine Has To Offer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

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.

“Certificate of Excellence for a Reason”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

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.

“Gotta Go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

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!
