The menu is limited - lobster rolls, lobster, mussels, crab rolls, something for the kids and ice cream. You sit at picnic tables on a long wharf jutting out from Newbury Neck in Surry. You can bring your own beverages and we recommend you bring your own cork screw/bottle opener and, if you want wine glasses bring your own. We didn't and were happy sipping our wine from the two mismatched cups provided. The food is good, plain lobster shack food as fresh as you'll find. Watch the sun set over the ocean and enjoy.

I feel so fortunate to be only 3 miles from the best lobster rolls in the world. The lobster dinner and steamed clams are also excellent, but the lobster rolls are like nowhere else. I think there must be at least an entire lobster on each one with just the right amount of mayo and a superb Kaiser roll (not the usual hot dog bun). It doesn't hurt that there is a killer view of the mountains of Acadia and the water of Union River Bay. There is no inside seating, but if it is raining we just take it home to eat. I love the addition of local ice cream (the blood orange is amazing) and the best blueberry pie - also made locally.

If you're looking for an out of the way steamer and lobster joint, this is the place! My wife and I boated there yesterday from across the bay and we had some of the cleanest grit and mud free clams we've ever had; no broth needed! The lobster dinner was delicious too (they had hard and soft shell options which was great) and it included butter, corn on the cob, a dinner role, and cole slaw. The service was outstanding and the views of Cadillac Mountain and Patten Bay are spectacular! It's BYOB so don't forget to bring your own. The Pandora station they had playing was the perfect mix of music (and the right volume for conversation) for such a great spot on the the coast of Maine. If you're looking for an authentic on the water seafood experience, be sure to stop by. They have lobster rolls too and even though we didn't get the blueberry pie, it's baked locally and looked delicious too.
