My husband was standing in line at the famous lobster roll place across Hwy. 1. There was no way I was waiting in that line, so I went across the street to Sprague’s Lobster Shack where I started talking to a local lady. She said...More

We stopped here on our way to Acadia. The $20/lobster roll and 20 minute wait time are typical for the area. We enjoyed the blueberry soda with it. There is a cute train car with a little history of the port that was cool. The...More
