On the advice of some people who lived in the area we stopped in for lobster rolls as a late lunch. They were prepared quickly and we all had a slightly different filling. The rolls felt undersized for the cost. There were large chunks of lobster in the filling, all members of the party felt that the filling may have been a little mayo heavy. We chose to eat outdoors at a nearby park.

Stopped in yesterday and as usual not disappointed. Very prompt friendly service as always and excellent fish & chips and lobster grilled cheese. Prices are less or comparable to other places for seafood where the wait is usually much longer. And feels great to support a small local business that has hung in there despite the many challenges of pandemic and being in the middle of a construction zone!

We stopped by today for an early supper. I ordered the lobster nachos and was very impressed with the quantity of lobster meat. It was layered through the nacho chips and not just on top. The flavor was amazing! My friend ordered the bowl size of lobster chowder and it was also very good with lots of lobster, haddock and scallops. The only complaint was the size of the biscuit. Very small so we ordered a second one. It's a family run restaurant (mother and son) and they were very friendly with great service.

This should have been called profit shack, not seafood shack. I don’t understand the raving reviews. A bowl of chowder cost 18$ and was served in such a small cup that I questioned whether it was the cup size or bowl size (the cashier confirmed it was bowl size). Lobster roll at 24$ barely had half a lobster in there. They had only cut the bun 1 cm deep so it looked like it was full of lobster but it was only a few pieces on top. We went to a few shacks and restaurants on our 2 week trip and this is the only one we felt so ripped off and disappointed. Would definitely not go again.

Overrated and over priced. Meal consisted of a lobster roll and cup of lobster chowder. The lobster roll had only about a third of a cup of lobster meat. It did not even fill the bun end-to-end. Cost was about $21 USD. Well cooked but not flavorful, nor seasoned. The chowder was equally tasteless. The broth alone had no flavor. The only seafood of any kind I found in the chowder was one small lobster claw. It was mostly potatoes. The french fries were very good. My dining mate's chicken panini was also good. It is also not a shack as described on their website. It is attached to a gas station. Find someplace else to go. FYI, I lived for 32 years in Boston and have eaten chowder, lobster, and lobster rolls from Rhode Island to Nova Scotia.

Best lobster roll I’ve had in years! I had the dill roll and it was at least a lobster’s worth of perfectly seasoned fresh meat, great bun, and OMG fries. They have three other lobster roll options if dill isn’t your thing. The roll on the right is the dill, the left roll is the standard. Can’t go wrong…

Takeout place with 3 booths. You order at counter or online and take your order when your name is called. We came after biking Morell to St. Peter’s and back. We had fish and chips which were perfectly done. The homemade lemonade was great, too.

Unassuming little place beside a gas station. If lobster items are as good as the clams, you should try them. Not very expensive either.

Great fish and chips! The seafood shack is our go-to in the summer to take visitors to. There are lots of options, great portions, and reasonable prices.

8 of us ordered lobster rolls ahead of time. They were promptly prepared. The size of the lobster rolls was very disappointing. Buns and amount of lobster was really quite minimal for the price of $25 each. They tasted OK but not spectacular. Again, for $25 and 5 star rating on TripAdvisor and Yelp, we were expecting more.

The service here is great. So friendly and welcoming. The food is good too. If you're in the area it's worth a visit, or detour.

We visited based on the TA reviews and weren't disappointed. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. We had the chowder and it was really good, not the best, but in the top 10.
