After visiting the area and meeting some really nice people was really shocked at the attitude of the lady who served us... Over priced food maybe but good manners and a smile costs nothing....

I normally don't like to write negative reviews but we went here on a recommendation and boy, what a letdown! It was like Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips on the beach. Plastic utensils, paper plates and mediocre food. If you're traveling through and want a relatively quick meal it might be okay, but if you're there on vacation for a dinner out, it's not the place. It may be less expensive than the waterfront sitdown places across the street, or in Camden but not enough to justify the difference in both quality and casual service.

Great view and great lobster. Enjoy some fresh seafood and drinks with a view of the bay. Skip the other restaurants, save your dough, and relax here.

My wife and I are in town for Columbus Day weekend and we had a terrfic lobster dinner at McLoughlin's. We each had a 1 3/4 lb. lobster for $20.99 and we ordered a side of 1.5 lb. of steamed clams for $16.99. Rick, the proprietor, brought our clams out about 10 minutes after we ordered and the clams were large and tasty. He brought them out with hot clam broth and melted butter to dip them in. Better than we had at another restaurant. The lobster came out just a few minutes later and they were soft shells that were sweet, meaty and tasty. The restaurant is informal and you order from the counter and your food is brought to you when it's ready. You just dispose of your remains when it's done. McLoughlin's also has a good choice of beverages including some local microbrews. We tried all three that Rick recommended. We also had a side order of cole slaw and there are plenty of other things on the menu. This restaurant was a very solid choice. Rick and his staff were super friendly and helpful with food choices and local information.

This is a really nice clean lobster pound. Fresh local seafood made to order, everything you would expect from a lobster pound. Self service, indoor seating and outdoor seating with a unique raised deck. Sitting right on Lincolnville beach you can walk on this tiny gem after or go across Route one and do so shopping at the artisans mall and beach inspirations. Good value and friendly service. We bring our dogs for a swim after dinner.
