  • 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 ratingI only saw the sign for Two Fat Cats when I drove by here on the way to somewhere else today.  Wow, I am so glad somewhere else was closed!  What a cute shop with great products.  I was only in search of the best lobster roll, which as other reviews indicate DOES NOT disappoint.  The staff was so friendly, and I met Jim who was also super helpful and friendly.  This is just the type of business where you feel good spending your money.  I will definitely be back!

  • 5 star ratingThe lobster roll was perfection. They also sell some local good, fresh high quality seafood, live lobstahs, some produce, dairy products, vino, blueberry pie and some other goodies. Call your order in..

    Lobster roll is on a long toasted and lightly buttered hot dog roll. Loads of delish meat. Perfection.

  • 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 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 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 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 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 ratingAbsolutely awesome lobster roll and some solid chowder to go with it. Very friendly folks working the counter. Love all the locally produced food they have for sale.

  • 5 star ratingThis place is really small and local- more like a store than an eating place. Counter service with only one employee when we were there. Only two small tables if you want to eat there. But the lobster was super fresh and yummy and clam chowder is great too. Glad we found this place.

  • 5 star ratingAmazing lobster rolls and great customer service. We come here a couple times a year from SoCal and that's our first stop. Wicked good lobstah rolls !

  • 5 star ratingThis is a nice little shop with lobsters, oysters, and other seafood offerings. They also have wine and other beverages as well as sauces to pair with the seafood, which most people seem to take home to prepare. We opted to dine in and ordered a bunch of oysters for $2+$1 shucking fee each, a lobster roll (cheaper than most), clam chowder, and a couple of enormous cocktail shrimp. Everything was delicious and the oysters, which are locally sourced, were incredibly fresh.

    There was a shelf of baked goods with pies that were very tempting that I may go back for.

  • 5 star ratingPossibly the best lobster roll I've ever had! Maine does it right the bun was perfect toasted with just the right amount of mayo!!

  • 5 star ratingCame in and ordered a giant lobster cooked for $11 and fresh corn on the cob. Sat at a table in side. They also have outdoor dining. On a budget then try this place. It was so cute inside and had lots of great things. The staff was super helpful and nice. It's right on the highway.
