Description: Enjoy lobster, steamers, lobster rolls, chowder and a whole lot more in a friendly, casual atmosphere. Live lobsters caught by local lobstermen wait in tanks filled with ocean water coming straight from the cove. Choose your size and two sides. For all the taste without the work, have a lobster roll any way you like it...a quarter pound single, double-stuffed, triple, or an entire pound on a buttery toasted roll with or without mayo. The lobster wrap and lobster BLT are also recently added favorites. Homemade chowder made from an old family recipe is a great way to start your meal, there's no thickening flour just the perfect combination of clams, fish, potatoes, onions and spices in a milk and cream base.The "Shack" has been owned and operated by the Evans family since the 1980s and is proud to serve the hottest chowder and the coldest beer in town. Let Jason, his family and his crew provide you with a true Maine eating experience in the oldest restaurant in Perkins Cove...

This was a wonderful little restaurant with great atmosphere, great people and great food. You can pick out your own lobster then enjoy it in about 10 minutes. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the fellow customers were also friendly.

This is a shack but with indoor seating! Prices were good for lobster. On a Sunday (perhaps every lunch) they run a lobster roll special. For $16 1/4 pound of fresh lobster on a bun served with chips and slaw (regularly) but they added a cup of clam chowder too! All good. Normally after paying $17 plus for a lobster roll I am still hungry! This place accompanied the roll and I couldn't finish everything. They serve beer and wine too! Friendly service, and good reviews for a reason!

My girlfriend and I have been coming to Perkins Cove pretty much every year for the last several. If we're here for 4 days we usually are at the Lobster Shack at least 3 times if not every day. There are other 'dining' places in the cove and nearby, but the Lobster Shack has the three things that are most important, good food and friendly service at a reasonable price. Excellent steamed lobster or lobster roll, and I'm not a clam chowder guy but their's is excellent and has fish as well as finely chopped clams. The last day there last week we both had the lobster BLT which was excellent! 4 days out of 4 and each one was a hit. You can't go wrong at the shack.

My sister and niece had lobstah rolls and loved them. Said they were some of the best they have had in Maine. I do not care for any seafood so I had a hot dog and it was delicious--good dog on great toasted buttered bun. Friendly service and good location in Perkins Cove.
