The seafood here is exactly how you want it to be. They do not mess around with being fancy and doing all the extras. You try your hardest to get your order thrown at someone behind the counter, or if you're lucky someone will walk up to you and take it amidst the chaos. You can pick our your lobsters, get as many as you want with as many sides as you want etc. It is definitely worth getting the massive combos like the Shore dinner or sometimes they have even a bigger one with too much food but worth it!

So the pound is about getting fresh lobster, and Young's does a great job. You have to go with the flow here, because it's impossible to understand. We ordered ahead by looking at the menu online and calling. This really helped--our food was ready and in a box when we got there. It's not cheap,but it is delicious. Fun to sit at the picnic tables and enjoy the sun setting on the town across the harbor. By the way, the shrimp cocktail is really good too.

This is a nice place to stop and have some lunch if you’re traveling. You can take your own drinks. They have inside seating ,outside balcony or beside the water . it was nice weather to be sitting outside enjoying my lobster sandwich and the sampler plate that we got.

If you want fresh lobster - or seafood - this is the place to come. Simple accommodations and byob - had a great lunch on the water with a beautiful breeze.

I'm not sure if it is the superb and friendly people at the counter, the old school unfussy eating area, or the most delicious crab meat around, but I love Young's and feel terrible it has taken me so long to write a review. We stop on our way up and back when we visit Acadia on a yearly basis and buy fresh fish and crabmeat from their counter. They give us ice as our drive is always a few more hours, and a few other stops :) Others might have to weigh in on their cooking, but all I can say is stop and enjoy the view, even if you don't need any food!
