The dine in food is delicious but, you won't find a better place to purchase fresh seafood in Maine. I use to rely on the Portland Waterfront, but this place has them beat. The service is excellent, the fish is ALWAYS fresh and delicious. Form...More

This is a roadside stand. I stopped in for a lobster roll and was disappointed by the price for what I got- a small hot dog bun with barely enough lobster to push the sides open for 15.00. We had to wait a while for...More

I always come here when I am home, can't beat the quick service and great seafood. Tiny little place on the way to Bailey Island and just outside of Cooks Corner. We chose the steamers, lobster roll, bacon wrapped scallops, and coleslaw. They do have...More

We decided we would try to steam our own lobsters for the first time. The people at Gurnet were very helpful and encouraging and gave us all the instructions we needed. They and the lobsters were great!

Okay, so to be fair the lobster was fresh on my wee lobster roll which I paid 16.00 or 17.00 for, no chips, no pickle, no bueno! The fish stew was about 7.00 for a small with small bits of seafood. No crackers or biscuits...More

Been going here since 2008 ever since we started using a local boatyard. A true "family" operation. Great people, best lobster roll anywhere! Fantastic capabilities to ship live or milk-frozen lobster. Our friends still wonder how we get fresh lobster in Park City, Utah.
