This is a nice place for a dinner by the water. We were seated inside because it was a bit breezy out the evening that we went. Shortly after we were seated they asked if they could move us because they had a large party coming in that they were trying to set up for. That was fine with us, no problem. After we got settled in at our new table they were carrying out another table and chairs so my husband had to move for them to get several pieces by. It wasn't a big deal, but honestly I was a bit annoyed. They also had to move another couple. The staff was nice about it, and I understood having to shuffle things around to accommodate the large party coming in. Anyhow, neither of us felt like having seafood this particular night. The food was good and the ambience is very nice. All in all it was a good experience and I am anxious to go back and try their seafood at another time.

McLaughins was recommended to us by an associate at the Hollywood Slot Hotel. We stopped in Bangor overnight on our way to PEI. Since I was craving lobster and the restaurants in the immediate area of the hotel were chains or fast foods, I thought I would check with a "local." She took no time telling us how McLaughlins was a favorite of her and her husband. We headed down the road to Hampden and found the restaurant situated at the marina. We opted to dine outdoors and the location on the Penobscot River was spectaular. The fresh lobster dinner was wonderful. Definitely a place we would return too. FYI McLaughins Seafood at the Gourmet Mall on Main Street in Bangor has a great mail order service for lobster and other seafood and related items.
