Based on recommendations from locals over at the Nubble Lighthouse, we decided to give this place a try. The place overlooks the coast, but it was hard to see out of the foggy/grimy windows. I had the Lobster Bisque which tasted like mayo soup. I also had bacon wrapped scallions that were decent. Overall, I was underwhelmed with the food.... More

This restaurant is located at the end of Long Sands beach. Ask for a window seat and watch the waves come in. The menu is standard but the food is above par. Nice fresh seafood is tops on the menu. Servers are very friendly and helpful with area recommendations.

This is one of the few places open after season, so we were glad to find it. We had the Fried Mushrooms first and they were plentiful and large. I then had lobster bisque, which was good, but could have used some lobster pieces in it. The lobster pie was a good sized portion, with 5 entire lobster tails (not... More

York, Maine desperately needs more food options. As surfers ideally we want to eat where we surf. And in October most places are closed for the season - so I'm grateful this place is even open as the snow starts to fly as I'm sure the locals at the bar are as well. So I get it, it's harder to...

Super sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience at Lobster Cove. We strive to make sure every guest is happy and most are! We are also happy to be here year round, with unhappy guests that would be tough. Our lobsters are delivered daily and I cant think of a reason that they would be anything but fresh.... More

My wife and I stopped here for dinner the other night. For a Thursday night, we were surprised at the number of cars in the parking lot. We were seated right away. Our server was very pleasant. My wife and I both ordered a cup of chowder which was great. My wife ordered the clam roll and I ordered the... More

Had dinner here. Friendly staff, delicious entrees. Bring a big appetite. I could not finish mine so also had to skip their homemade desserts.

We drove to Maine, so we could eat Maine lobster overlooking the ocean, which we did. This place was recommended ad a down & dirty seafood place, whatever that means. It's not a fancy place, which means no inflated prices! we got huge lobsters, monster baked potatoes, corn on the cob, bread and tea for around sixty dollar. Excellent service.... More

I had my first lobster today. Drove all the way to Maine just to have it. And it was delicious. My husband had the lobster roll and he liked it very much
