“We came to Maine for the Lobster, and this fit the bill!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

We headed to Maine to eat lobster and see the sights. We asked the receptionist at the hotel desk where to go and this was quickly her answer. So off we headed. This is what I was expecting when thinking of a lobster hut. Classic, quaint and filled with history. We quickly ordered the special which was 2 1.5lb lobsters for $28. Yes it comes with chips, pickles and a piece of bread. We asked why, they said it's the way it's always been done. Our lobsters came out and we quickly went to work. This place isn't fancy, it isn't glamorous, it is what it is! And what it is, is classic! The food was great, the beers were cold and it felt great to see sea-to-table. Wish I would have bought a lobster roll too!

Be aware that they do not take cards, but do take checks, and have an ATM on site with a $3 fee. And they open at 5PM.

“Amazing. Must Go”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

We had the lobster. Amazing. We also had the blueberry pie. Amazing. Chowder was the best we've had to date . But honestly what I liked most about the place is it has character. They don't take credit cards...like I said character.

“Is what it is”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

We like this place because it is what it is with no pretense. Lobsters were good. We like the down home shack look and seaside theme and ambiance. The staff was friendly. Just what you'd expect in Maine.

2 whole lobsters for $28...need I say more? Lobster was delicious as well as clam chowder and blueberry pie was to die for! Absolutely recommend!

“Worst Lobster Ever”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

One would think that after 50 plus years a place with a good rating would know how to cook lobster. Maybe they forgot. Our two dinner lobsters were very tough and that means they cooked them to long. We arrived when they first opened and it took 30 minutes to be served. Maybe they forgot which pots were boiling. Their special was a one and a quarter Lobster Dinner for $21.99. Sounded good. But your dinner was the lobster, a small bag of chips, a stale roll and two pickle chips. At least the Lays Chips were good. Also note they do not take Credit Cards. They do not open till 5pm
