My parents love going to Libby's Market for lobster rolls, crab rolls (neither of which I eat), and breakfast sandwiches (delicious) but I especially love their pizza. Everybody is very friendly and it's a fun place to go.

Everything works at Libby's. This down-to-earth neighborhood market meets all of one's needs, especially when it comes to Lobster!!! The lobster rolls could not be fresher (thanks to Danny, one of the owners, being a lobsterman) and the same goes for the crab meat rolls (really anything and everything). If you're not a seafood lover, there are plenty of other choices and the accommodating owners will make whatever you want, however you want it. I see customers arrive in the early morning to eat breakfast; everything from delicious breakfast sandwiches - including "lobster" muffins - using real eggs and cooked to order, have coffee AND order their lunch to go. Smart people. The atmosphere is inviting, friendly, and vibrant. Whether it's a joke being told or just the warmth exuding from Danny or Tina, everybody's happy at Libby's Market. A refreshing change from the "too cool and trying too hard to be hip" places. Back to the food...fantastic. Everything made with love and everything a bargain. Need to buy fresh lobsters (YEAR ROUND!) or fresh crab meat or fresh scallops? This is the place. The bottom line is Libby's Market is a very special place, owned by very special people, and no visit to Maine - even if you live here - is complete without a visit here. ONE OF A KIND!

In the lobster capital of the world, with every-other place crowing “The Best…”, this really is it. I should know as I've traveled the state (it started 12 years ago) in search of the best lobster, and sometimes crab, roll and while there are plenty of places to get a very fine one (Red's Eats in Wiscasset comes to mind; they catered my wedding 7+ years ago and will always carry a special place in my heart) Libby’s Market takes the cake.

But it doesn’t stop there as most morning’s - like, every morning - my wife and I stop off for a beautifully prepared breakfast sandwich (@ $2.57 a steal) and, really, anything and everything they prepare here is simply fantastic and made with love (trite as that sounds).

Just last night Danny, one of the owners (a lobsterman to boot, which means FRESHLY CAUGHT LOBSTERS & LOBSTER ROLLS YEAR-ROUND!!!) along with his lovely and hard-working wife Tina [two of the nicest people I’ve ever met], sautéed freshly caught scallops, Maine shrimp, and fresh, caught-today, cod which were all to-die-for. Whatever they make at Libby’s Market is ‘off the hook’ - if not figuratively than literally – as in delicious.

Let’s be clear here: THIS IS NOT FINE DINING (it is not Lutèce for example; sorry if my NYC roots are showing) BUT SIMPLE & FABULOUS EATING. It’s not even close to the water – even if Brunswick is – and you can find far more “atmospheric” places as Libby’s is truly just a simple inconspicuous neighborhood market. (And the cast of “characters” who frequent the place are truly “eye-opening”).

No matter, YOU WILL NOT FIND NICER, MORE WONDERFUL, OR MORE ACCOMODATING OWNERS & PEOPLE (INCLUDING THE AFOREMENTIONED CAST OF CHARACTERS; AND I INCLUDE MYSELF AMONG THEM), OR A BETTER FRESHER LOBSTER ROLL (CUSTOM-MADE, ANY WAY YOU WANT) – AT BETTER PRICES – ANYWHERE IN THE STATE, OR BEYOND FOR THAT MATTER.
