  • 5 star ratingWow. Going into a place that averages 5 stars, I was skeptical. Did not want to have that "I don't get what the fuss is over" experience, but boy was their food good. Whatever they do with their lobster and crab rolls keep on doing it cause damn. Probably the best lobster roll I ever had. Right amount of mayo, butter on the roll and lobster. My wife and I had one to go as well...unfortunatley it was left where our dog could get it. He had a tasty meal too.

  • 5 star ratingIt is interesting that the best rated Lobster places in Maine are these little shops and not sit down restaurants, but the lobster rolls are great and the variety of other options is quite nice. Definitely a place to stop by at least once while visiting Maine as they have great food both ready to eat and source ingredients to take home and use for recipes.
    The kids got a big kick out of seeing live lobsters in (and out!) of the tank.

  • 5 star ratingWe came in from flying into Portland, ME on our way to Kennebunkport. This place was the perfect stop between the two to introduce us to our first lobster roll. The roll was grilled and buttered to perfection and the lobster was tender and delicious. What a great find! Run don't walk to this place!

  • 5 star ratingWe decided to stop after reading the great reviews and we weren't disappointed. We had the lobster rolls and clam chowder and they were both really tasty! We'll come back the next time we're in town!

  • 5 star ratingThis is a specialty seafood market where you can pick out your own lobsters, clams, mussels etc. You can take the fresh seafood home or they'll steam them here for you! Service is excellent and homely.

  • 5 star ratingDiscovered this gem while in the area for a weekend. To die for lobster and crab meat rolls, so fresh and lots of meat! Little bit of wasabi on the crab roll, mmm. The chowder was chock full of fish and was super also. Jim the owner is extremely knowledgeable and nice. Hope he comes and opens a location near Bedford NH some day!!

  • 5 star ratingWe heard this was the place to go for the best lobster in Maine and man oh man, were the reviews right! Concerned they would close before we had a chance to get there, we gave them a call, preordered to have a few fresh lobsters cooked and 20 minutes later they were ready for us. The service was incredible, helpful and warm. We grabbed some butter and wine and brought the lobsters back to our AirBnB and loved every bite. Now I understand why people love lobster like they do- lobster like this is worth every penny!

  • 5 star ratingFresh food, nice service, great experience. The lobster roll is a must. The shrimp is sooo fresh and juicy. Don't forget the coke slaw to delight your meal. Call 20 mins in advance to have your food prepared. The picture didn't show but they have small dining area in doors and out doors.

  • 5 star ratingFound this place near my hotel and damn what a find. Parking lot with spots, outdoor seating and some good food. It does take time to get your order but that's cuz it's made fresh to order. We grabbed some lobster rolls which were good in size, nicely buttered up and with a good handful of meat. We also got a cup of chowder, crab roll, salmon cake and crab cake which were all good. I highly would recommend this place if your in the area. A shoutout to Yelp for giving me the $5 coupon : )

  • 5 star ratingStopped on our drive back to NJ and was pleasantly surprised by our find. We had lobster rolls, seafood corn chowder, clam chowder and fresh oysters. We also bought fresh fish to grill that evening when we arrived home. Everything was delicious. They have picnic tables outside where we enjoyed our lunch.

  • 5 star ratingSuper friendly and great food what a perfect combo. Ordered the lobster roll and clam chowder and it's one of those rare instances that you try not to finish your meal because it will be sadly over. I quite simply enjoyed every single bite. I will DEFINITELY eat here if I am ever in the area again.

  • 5 star ratingGreat fish market. Limited but super high quality selection of local fish and shellfish with huge lobster tanks flanking the side of the store. There is also a nice selection of groceries with an emphasis on seafood (obviously) as well as wine and fancy sodas. Very clean place.

    The owner was also super nice and very understanding as our young son was at peak obnoxiousness the day we were in. So thanks!!!
