“Lobster dinner with no sides”
Review of Downtown Lobster Pound - CLOSED

Downtown Lobster Pound
Price range: $10 - $25
Cuisines: American, Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 2, 2014

I wanted a Maine lobster dinner which years ago meant you got corn on the cob and a baked potato with the lobster. Here you got the lobster only and sides were extra and not too cheap. For being in Maine I expected less pricey lobsters.

Service was absolutely terrible. Took 15 minutes for anyone to come to our table and start taking our order. The server seemed to be doing her best but one order was placed incorrectly and then our bills were incorrect. So much so, one member of our group's credit card was charged for 2 different bills and at the wrong amount. We left still unsure if the correct people had been charged the proper amounts. Staff was all friendly but it was a very disappointing experience overall.

Seemed like everything was extra. $60 for lunch? Skip it for a better deal. At least the food wasn't too bad.

We ate lunch here last Thursday. We had the lobster roll w/ lobster sautéed in butter, and the twin lobster rolls @ a reasonable price for Bar Harbor.

Our waitress was super friendly and very quick, without making us feel rushed. She might be THE most energetic server I've ever seen.

Nice deck, no great view; but on the edge of town a little bit away from the throngs of people.

The lobster was the worst I had ever tasted. The service was great though, so stop by to say hi, but not to eat. If you really are desperate to eat there, then get the hot dog because those are good.
