“Maybe not the lobster?”
Review of Lazy Lobster - CLOSED

These were some of the nicest people we had help us in Maine, but we rate on food, don't we?

It was ok. We thought more of it while eating, but that's why I gave myself a week to write this brief review. After time to sample fare elsewhere, the lobster here wasn't as fresh. I understand that they aren't keeping tanks in this deli, but that IS what's available in the area. My son's pizza looked so-so, though he ate the whole thing without complaint and the owner did mention that they made the sauce from scratch. I think it would have benefited from some browning of the top.

We were here in the middle of June and they had just raised the prices. Perhaps a better job of re-writing the numbers would have made me not feel a bit shafted for paying $24 for a pre picked lobster.

Anyway, don't take this as a discouragement not to go. On the other hand, go, but maybe look at things other than lobster here.

First, I would like to thank you for trying us and for the kind words about us. We're sorry that you felt that you didn't get a good value for your money.

I would like to explain our lobster pricing. Lobster prices are at their highest during the early part of the season and gradually decrease as June progresses. Contrary to what you wrote in your review, our lobster prices have come down in the last two weeks, and are the most competitive in town. The only places in town with lower prices are serving smaller portions or, are using frozen claw and knuckle meat. (Beware of lobster rolls with just claw meat) I buy crates of live lobsters from a local fisherman, and we are picking meat just about every day. We do charge $23.95 for a lazy lobster, but it has nearly a half pound of fresh picked meat, which retails for around $45.00 a pound. By picking the meat ourselves, we save money and pass it along to our customers.

I hope this sheds some light on what you paid for and I want you to know that I appreciate your business. Thank you for trying the Lazy Lobster.

My boyfriend and I spent a few days in Bar Harbor this week and ate breakfast here every day. The food was delicious and in very generous portions. The hash is homemade and I had to have it every single day. So good!

Have gotten take out lobster the last two years on vacation in Bar Harbor . Probably five to six times. Like being able to call in and then pick it up. Reasonable prices and good sides as well. I will be ordering from them again this year.

We came here for some lobster rolls while in town, so we each ordered a lobster roll meal that includes 1 lobster roll, 1 chowder, and 1 slice of blueberry pie. The lobster was fresh, the lobster chowder barely had any lobster and it was very salty, the blueberry pie was microwaved so part of it was still cold.

Lazy Lobster is serving breakfast and lunch this year. My wife and I had the very generous Park Ranger breakfast with excellent homemade corned beef hash. Truly a great eatery!
