Young's Lobster Pound is the place to get lobster around here. But the best part is that you can bring all the niceties - chilled Muscadet, candles, flowers, assorted salads, tablecloth, napkins, and turn a butter-soaked picnic table into an elegant setting for your lobster and steamed clams. You won't find the Muscadet here , so unless you want to... More

This how you eat Lobster. You do not eat Lobster in a fancy restaurant in major city with perfect table setting. You eat close to the Atlantic sea, when the sun slow going down, you bring your own favorite wine and some napkins. Directly from the sea and the boilers. FANTASICT!! Young´s Lobster Pound & Seafood Restaurant gives you value... More

My husband was impressed by the freshness of the lobster. You could literally taste the salt from the ocean. They steamed them for us. The view while we waited in the car was beautiful! We had a spectacular view of the bay while it was snowing and the entire property was plowed and easily accessible during the storm. Prices are... More

Way too expensive and you do not get much extra. Tiny cup of butter that isn't even hot......tourist trap.

We read about Young's and had to go there. It's a little confusing where to order and how the line works. But once we ordered, we walked around looking in the lobster tanks, watched the staff preparing the food (quite a sight) then checked out the seating upstairs. Several other customers brought their beverages with them to enjoy with their... More

We actually visited this place two nights in a row and had lobster both nights. Very convenient to where we stayed, They will sell you seafood too. You pick you size and quantity. They have dining table inside and out or you can take to go. Open 7 days a week.

While on a hunt for the best lobster roll on the Maine coast, we felt compelled to stop at Young's, a massive warehouse with a no-frills counter up front. While we waited for our lobster rolls and chowder, we watched trucks pull up and unload their catches, and locals ordered live lobsters to take home. It was a chilly day,... More
