Lots of outside seating with a few spots inside. We sat outside and watched the boats unload crabs. Fun place, fast service and great food.

Eating here is always a fantastic experience. I love sitting at a picnic table where we can look out over the water. And then, there's the food... The haddock sandwich here continues to be the best I've ever had. Perfectly sautéed, a light topping, a delicious lemon aioli, lettuce, tomato, and a fresh roll that perfectly fits the haddock fillet.... More

When in Downeast Maine, the one place I have to visit at least once is the Quoddy Bay Lobster Company for its amazing and wonderful lobster rolls. And they keep getting better! They now come in different sizes with your choice of mayo, Miracle Whip or butter. I went for the jumbo lobster roll with butter. Wow! So good. The... More

Seafood is fabulous and they always have daily specials. We had steamers and fresh tuna. Yummy. They Alonso have non seafood items on menus and they looked good.

Quoddy Bay Lobster is pretty well hidden, down a dirt road behind everything on the main street. Had to ask for directions. Didn't have much interaction with the staff, but they seemed friendly. We ate outside at the picnic tables; I moved from my first seat because it was sticky; the second spot was a little better. You are right... More

We've had lobster rolls up and down the northeast coast for many, many years and have now put Quoddy Bay on the top of our list (yes, better than Red's). It is so good that we stopped on the way up to Nova Scotia and on the way back and plan to go once more before the season ends. Besides... More

My husband and I visited Eastport in search of the best lobster roll in New England. Well we found it at Quoddy Bay Lobster. We had to ask for directions from the locals - at the end of a dirt road following the shore. There are picnic tables outdoors, some covered, some not. The lobster roll with coleslaw was amazing...

Our last full day in Maine and we found a wonderful place to have a fantastic lobster roll. Spend the $ - get the jumbo lobster roll with butter. You will thank yourself for sure.

It's a quiet afternoon at the Quoddy Bay Lobster Company...and we've been waiting 35 minutes for a couple of sandwiches. Still no word on when they might arrive but we're hopeful of seeing them within the hour.

Hands down THE best Downeast lobster (and more) is at Quoddy Bay Lobster. What makes it best? Start with freshly caught lobster (my favorite) steamed at the time you order it and served in all its naked delicious glory with drawn butter. Carry it over to one of the picnic tables. You have your choice of sun or shade, uncovered... More

This is a seaside restaurants with outdoor seating only, serving fresh lobster, crab, clams, mussels and scallop dishes in a variety of ways. The chowda is to die for (not your standard, flour base, but a creamy seafood infused broth loaded with yummies). There are salads, wraps, rolls, children's portions and dinner size as well. There are a few items for land lovers, but no one in our group ordered any of them. There is a small gift shop offering local made mustards, relishes and other refreshments. Put it on your bucket list!
