My family lives in Maryland, so we know a little bit about seafood.
We have been coming to the Bucksport area every summer for 20 years. We've tried many of the lobster pounds and casual restaurants from Belfast to Bar Harbor. We found Carriers a few years ago and is our favorite. Fresh fish from Portland, lobsters from Stonington, and starting last year they added Giffords ice cream. Portions are huge, so feel comfortable ordering a small. A haddock basket, fish and chips, scallops, or a huge lobster roll, you can't go wrong. In July make sure you specify if you want a hard shell or a shedder (new softer shell) lobster since they are priced differently.
Eat outside on the picnic tables while the young kids play on the swing set, or eat in the casual dining room. Just be prepared to pick up your food when your number is called.
I love the board with all the lobster trap buoys and a listing of all the boats and captains that provide lobsters to Carriers.
A great place to eat.
