You see exactly what's being cooked infront if you. Be sure to pack drinks and some people even bring table cloths and appetizers. Great outdoor seating. A little hectic to order but worth the wait.

Both lobster salad and grilled haddock were fresh and perfectly prepared. Service staff pleasant, dining on the dock delightful and everything as clean as could be! A delightful experience all around - and Belfast is a quaint little Maine town with great shops!

This was my first experience, and I was immediately hooked! The ambiance is perfect - this is Maine, not Manhattan: if you're too stuck up for Young's I feel bad for you. The staff was great at walking us through the options.

Yes, it is pet friendly. No clue how large the lobsters go. I would call them directly.

I'm not sure. I was just a patron but I'm sure that I did see over 2 lbs. I prefer 1.5 at the most.

The Lobster roll I ate was served cold on a hamburger bun, no a roll, it was filled with "fresh" meat, some of the best of ever eaten on the coast. Light on the mayo. Was perfect!
