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...

It is a tiny little Place near the end of Perkins Cove, from the outside does not look like too much. The food, however is fantastic. We had the lunch special of chowder, and a lobster roll. There was a huge amount of lobster in the roll, and was fresh, and delicious. The clam chowder was some of the best I have had anywhere. It gets busy at lunchtime, and you may have a wait, but it is very well worth it!

Authentic shack food. Simple seafood, done right. Look for the specials, like lobster roll with chowder. Chowder is just right, not too soupy, not too thick.

Bottom Line: Lobster comes in from the boats across the street! Excellent service in a quint little town.

Details: We stopped here after walking The Marginal Way and were so taken that we stopped by again the next day. The restaurant is small and the lines can be long but they move very quickly. The staff was incredibly friendly and the restaurant is clean. This is a great little gem in a little gem of a town. This was the complete opposite of the horrific experience we had in a similar place in York the night before. Highly recommended!

Very fresh lobster, relaxed casual feel. Prices fine. No view but relaxing. Prepared to wait. Mostly seafood.
