I'm very glad we couldn't find a table anywhere in Perkin's Cove, otherwise we never would have discovered what is now one of my favorite lobster pound place. The lobster was of course excellent, and so was our cocktail at the bar as we waited for our table. The lobster came with the typical two side dishes, a choice of 4, all of which were succulent, we had different ones to taste all 4. The atmosphere is easy, it's a place for lobster lovers, whether just in two, or with the whole family.

Family friendly with fresh seafood but emphasizing lobsters and clams at reasonable prices. Also has other fresh fish as well as non-fish entrees. Their chowder or lobster bisque is delicious as an appetizer. Prices are moderate. It feels like Maine!

This is THE restaurant for lobster if you're in this part of Maine. Some people huff at the price, but it is so worth it! The way they cook the lobsters make them really flavorful and they're always sweet and tender. And what's more fun than picking out your lobster from the tank? Not to mention they split the shells for you before it's served, making it less work to get to the meat. The steamers are great too. Service is always great and I would recommend!

Is it a tourist trap? Of course it is -- but a GOOD one! You might think lobster is lobster, but there's no comparison between a lobster here and one from the local supermarket. Juicy, plum, flavorful are the operational words here. I know purists cringe when they here they pre-crack the lobsters but it makes it a lot easier to eat, and you still have to work for it. While the lobster is clearly the main attraction, I always enjoyed the sides as well. The baked beans and cole slaw are my favorites. Not the saucy slaw you often get but with a nice crunch instead. Beer selection is somewhat limited but well assorted. Come early on the weekends or you may be in for a long wait.
