“Great for large groups with kids. Arrive at sunset for killer family photos”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

The food is amazing. Kids can play while parent can relax and enjoy. The sunsets perfect in the summer to take really good family photos with the water behind. Best Lobster rolls

“Extremely casual”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

It's a shack as called but the lobster was always sweet! We didn't really feel like 'fine' dining. We went a few times that June.

Sit outside on the water
Absolutely beautiful views.
Look at your fresh lobster in the tank
Then eat like a king.

“Disgusting food!!!!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

The only good thing about this place is its location and view. The clam chowder was whole clams cut up potatoes in milk. The fried clams were the worst I've ever had. The service was just as bad as the food. Way to expensive

“FRESH & Yummy Lobster meal”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We had lobster at Lobster Pound and McLaughlins Lobster Shack - hands down McLaughlins was the better meal. Similar price and sides. McLaughlins even made the 'eating' easier with their well placed knife slits. DELISH.
