We had lobsters at the gender, weight that we wanted. Service just freindly and fine. The presentation was as usual, not fancy service but the focus is on the meal. Nice evening.

This is THE place for lobster... pick your own, steamed in fresh Maine sea-water. Absolutely delicious. Even better, they pre-crack it for you so you can eat the whole thing and every bite is still warm because it didn't take you forever to get the...More

We had steamers and lobster's, both were wonderful. The only ambivalence over the mashed potatoes that were very starchy and sticky. Otherwise it was very very good.

First, we ordered the lobster. We then went outside and picked the weight that we wanted. The order was weighed, labeled and priced. The waiter brought the steamed hard shell lobster, pre-cracked. We had questions which he was happy to answer. Our waitress was attentive...More

We come here for a whole Maine lobster meal... complete with bib and shell cracking tools... they never disappoint. From picking your own lobster from the holding tank, to digging in to a two pounder, this place is just great family fun.

It was nice they pre-cut the lobster shell and picking one out was okay (not really my thing). The ambiance is of a BIG, busy, noisy restaurant that turns tables every hour or so.I was dining alone and sadly, there didn't seem to be any...More

One in our group of 4 ordered a chicken sandwich. He made best decision. Not one we would go back to.

Casual restaurant which gets very busy. If you love lobster, you get to pick your own out of their lobster pound and then it's cooked, cracked and brought to the table in a basket. Staff is friendly and there are other options if you're not...More

We do not take reservations however, we do like a "heads up" when a large party is coming in. Please call the restaurant to discuss further when we open for the season. Thanks for contacting us.

I am not sure if soft shell lobsters are available in September. Personally I prefer the hard shell lobsters and Ogunquit Lobster Pound cooks and cracks them so perfectly, there is no reason to get the soft shell lobster... More

Established in 1931 the Ogunquit Lobster Pound has been proudly serving the best Maine lobster for generations. Choose your own live lobster to be boiled in seawater in the traditional Maine fashion or try one of the many offerings from our full menu. Now in our 87th year, we continue our traditions of consistency, quality, and exceptional service. We eagerly look forward to another season of satisfied customers both new, and those who have been returning for years.
