Tucked at the end of a 12 mile detour off of Maine's coastal Rt 1 highway, this is Maine to the core and worth the trip down. Its a working fishing dock with a small seafood / lobster shack. Give your order, grab a beer, find an outdoor picnic table and enjoy the wonderful coastal sea views.

Sometimes I wish I would have never come here....because every other seafood restaurant in America is a failure in comparison(unless we are speaking of New Orleans because that is a different ball game). When you see the lobsters literally being pulled into the lobster shack from their ocean cage...it does not get any fresher. No need for fancy clothes for... More

One of my favorite obsessions each summer is to locate the best onion rings available in mid-coast Maine. Onion rings in Maine? You bet! A place that produces killer onion rings knows how to cook! And onion rings pair wonderfully with steamed clams and/or lobster! Routinely, I explore onion rings at Five Islands, Shaws in Bristol, Lobster Dock and and... More

This is what Maine is. This is how lobster is supposed to be eaten. Right out of the boat, while sitting on the dock, with a beautiful view. It really is the best.

My husband and I actually were here in Oct 2015, but we can't review that far back. We were on a US road trip and a mission to find some great Maine lobster, and arrived here on the last day of the season! We picked out our lobster, who ended up being 6 and a half pounds of delicious. He... More

Five Islands is a working harbor on Georgetown Island in Maine (south of Bath). One can’t imagine a better picture-perfect view of coastal Maine. The view from the wharf is spectacular: the islands, the boats, the water. You can watch the lobstermen dock and unload their catch, which is taken up and in to the lobster company bins. If you...

Our second trip to five islands. We like to vist this area in the fall. Be sure to check their hour before you go, they change in the fall. We love to eat there, nothing fancy, picnic tables on the deck with great look at the fishing village. But best of all fresh lobster steamed perfectly. Would not pass up... More

Excellent Lobster! We had 2 lobster dinners, and everything was in rustic style, which I love! Be sure to get the hard shell, and ask for a shell cracker!
