Where to find a good lobster before the season starts? When it's winding down? When it's happening? Go to this friendly, family-run spot on the water in Lincolnville. Great steamed lobsters of all sizes, generous size lobster rolls, and wonderful fries. You can sit inside...More

Nice basic food in a relaxed atmosphere. Good fish and good burgers. Limited food selections, but more than enough to pick from

Great lobster dinners, terrific lobster rolls:. now I know why those are a New England thing. Mmm. Don't expect a lot of fish house ambience -- this a lobster/clam shak on the harbor that caters to locals. It is fast food style service, but with...More

This is the basic lobster shack type restaurant. This style is one of our favorite Maine choices. We both had lobster, though I chose the lobster roll and the spouse a lobster dinner. Sweet potato fries are on the menu. Beautiful view and atmosphere.

You order and they call your number when it's ready; no big deal for us. Family friendly; you can eat inside or out. We just didn't think the food was as good as here at home!

Nice outdoor seating but food was nothing special. Order inside, find a seat and they call your number for pickup. Nice view of Lincolnville Beach harbor but food was very average. Fish chowder was mostly potatoes and very watered down. Would not eat here again.

Had the lobster rolls as soon as we arrived in Lincolnville. Sat outside as the fog rolled in, and listened to the mournful fog horns. The location is five stars. The food and ice cream were delish. Food did not take long to come out...More

This was the first restaurant we went to on our vacation because I had to have a lobster roll as soon as possible. The menu is extensive, which a lot of options for lobster, shrimp, clams, and haddock. I had the lobster roll basket with...More
