“An Award Winner”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Family owned and operated, Waterman's Beach Lobster,is as their ad says, ". . . the quintessential Maine experience." Believe it or not, it's a James Beard Restaurant Award Winner. Located on the beach in South Thomaston, Maine, it offers great views, great food, and great service. Lobsters fresh from the water, and pies to die for in a very picturesque setting. The servers, all female college students are very friendly and outgoing, Kudos to Taylor and Christie who delivered our meals and helped in making our experience a great one. It's a not miss Maine experience.

“Lobster roll”
Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

Here's where you go for lobster or a lobster roll. Service is good and view is great. Maine must stop. They have other choices as well for those that don't want lobster.

“great seaside repast”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

This is a rustic, gastronomic delight that comes around all too infrequently. Go to Maine, drive into the countryside somewhere near South Thomaston, and, order a pound or so of lobster. The Waterman's pound just opened for the season on June 14, 2014, and we were there. The food was good. The chocolate macaroon ice cream and the homemade rhubarb pie was fantastic. Total bill for two was about forty dollars. You can't beat Maine lobster served right on the coast. The wide open spaces, fresh air, and, a wooden picnic table makes it taste even better.

“Great Lobsters”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

The lobsters were great. The steamers were good as well. Lobster pounds are the only way to eat lobster. It doesn't have a lot of the niceties like indoor plumbing but the lobsters are great.

“Local Lobster Shack”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Read a review that this is off the main road and where the locals go for lobster. We had a bit of difficulty finding it but we did and it was very good. Maine fresh lobster cannot be topped. If you have the time find Waterman's, sit by the water and enjoy!
