They had really great seafood, large quantities that were very reasonably priced.The service was great and they had an adorable gift shop attached. The grounds were simply amazing with a gazebo and flowers surrounding that would make a lovely setting for a small intimate wedding or a reception.

The five of us from California ate here in early October, 2016. We paid $200 for three beers, 4 cups of chowder, 1 bowl of chowder, 5 lobster rolls, 2 hot teas, 1 order of fried scallops and one slice of apple pie. If our "lobster roll" had been overflowing as some have pictured, we would have felt a little... More

A very good meal at a reasonable price. The staff seemed a bit overwhelmed by the crowd so was a bit of a wait. But all the lobster houses in the area were packed so I give them a little bit of a break. Not much ambiance but there for lobster. Side dishes were fine.

We went to visit Acadia National Park on the weekend following Columbus Weekend. So did the rest of the world. No wonder the restaurant felt crowded! Adding to the congestion is a Trinkets area. The day was so lovely, I would have loved to eat in the Gazebo, but didn't feel that would be appreciated by the staff. We were... More

The decor of the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. There is a gift shop of sorts in the restaurant that leaves a lot of clutter. The service is just ok, but we did enjoy the food enough to come back for a second visit. The first visit we each had a hot lobster roll. It was really good,... More

I would have rather of spent my 40 dollars on a Mcdonald's Happy Meal. My wife and I went to this place in the hopes of trying a lobster dinner during our Maine vacation. We ordered two lobster dinners, which were 18.99 each. We received our dinner in about 30 minutes. The waitress brought our sides out 15 minutes before... More

My friend and I ate here TWICE in as many days. First night I had the sautéed lobster roll..which was absolutely wonderful..and the clam chowder which I have to say I was a little disappointed in...alot of potatoes and very few clams. The broth flavor was good but should have been thicker as it is supposed to be a chowder.... More
