Good place to visit. The staff was so friendly and even willing to let us eat when it was later in the evening and they were getting ready to close. They even did grilled lobsters for us, for free!!! And oh my, that was a TREAT! Our waiter was a young man, so nice and helpful, and we enjoyed our visit here.

We happened upon this restaurant as we were heading to Bar Harbor. We were hungry and the place looked nice (and crowded), so we figured it was worth a try. This would be the first of our lobster pound experiences and it turned out to be the best. It was a cool set-up out front with the big pots of lobsters on top of fire. It's obviously nothing fancy, just had a nice laid-back vibe on the water. Most importantly, the lobster. They had a nice selection, and we decided on a huge one to share which was delicious. We didn't have much else, just splitting a salad which was average. The real reason to come to a lobster pound is for lobster... and this did not disappoint. A great value also.

We just returned to Kansas from a weeks stay in the Trenton Maine area. We happened on to this place the 1st night we were there and liked it so much we made a habit of being there for our evening meals. The lobster was outstanding! 1 3/4 pounders for 16 bucks! Great food, great atmosphere and Neal treated us like family. Ribs were also outstanding. Didn't think yankees even knew how to do ribs! If you are in the Trenton area and don't stop in you will have missed out on a great dining experience. I'm hoping we can get them to relocate to North Central Kansas but that doesn't seem likely. Thanks guys for helping make our trip one to remember.
