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 gem is located on Perkins Cove in Ogunquit. The menu offers lots of lobster, steamed clams and fresh fish sandwiches. Their prices are reasonable, their service is quick and very pleasant. Go here for a wonderful lunch or dinner! Enjoy!

“Great food. And that's what matters.”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

You shouldn't mess too much with lobster and these folks know it. Keep it simple, don't overcook it and serve it with a nice local brew. The Lobster Shack does all that. I'm glad I went.

“Just good lobster”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

There is nothing fancy about this place - you just order at the counter and sit at long wooden tables, but the lobster rolls are delicious (if you don't want mayo you can get one without and ask for hot butter on the side). The staff are fast and friendly. The chowder is good but a bit thin, but the chowder isn't why you go. Definitely worth a visit.

“Great food, friendly staff!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

In Perkins Cove amongst the many shops and restaurants. Very clean. The staff was friendly, mostly teenage kids. Food was reasonably priced for the area.

He had a double lobster roll which came with a free cup of clam chowder. I had fish tacos and a cup of clam chowder. The fish tacos were good, but I found myself wishing I had gotten the lobster. We would definitely eat here again.
