We had a great meal here in early October. The lobsters and steamers were delicious. I'd recommend this place to anybody who wants great lobster. We also had a piece of blueberry pie which was amazing! Great prices with a very casual atmosphere. Friendly staff.

This is a great lobster pound, even the lobsterman who supplies them with their lobster eats there. We ordered two 2lbs. lobsters, which were cooked perfectly, and a side of fries. The only downside was it was their last night of the season. Otherwise we would have eaten there several more times during our trip. We will definitely be back next year.

These lobster pounds are everywhere and are a fun place to eat. No ambiance, just inexpensive, yummy, fresh lobster with all the fixins! A great people-watching place!

My husband I stopped at the Bar Harbor Lobster Pound yesterday. We order a lobster roll and a bowl of the lobster bisque. The lobster roll was small but the meat was very tender. It was sever with a a bag potato chips. The lobster bisque had just a few small pieces of lobster in it. We won't stop here again.

After reading the Trip Advisor reviews and at the recommendation of the owner of Robbins Motel we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The food was hot and ready to eat in a very short period of time. We both had lobster and were very pleased with the presentation and the favors. Others in the small dining room were also tourists and the atmosphere encouraged discourse among the diners (it had just rained and was too cool to eat outside in October). Don't listen to the lady who wanted her lobster served to her without the shell (heaven forbid) - this is not a four star restaurant - it is a great roadside cafe with good food at reasonable prices.
