Visited the Lobster House to listen to local music and hang out with friends while on vacation. Ordered chicken tenders and fries which were good. Entertainment was good and fun. Seems to be a popular place for locals to gather on a Saturday Night. Would definitely go there again.

We come to the Phippsburg area a few times each year and continue to return to the Lobster House...drawn by the usually spectacular sunsets that with the reflections from the salt pond can create incredible photos (see attached). The colorful buoys that adorn the lovingly weathered lobster shack give a sense of what to expect, and once inside the front... More

The food, well maybe we should have ordered the lobster, but opted for the fried clams, crabmeat roll, and the scallops with pasta. The highlight of our... More

When we came here in September 2015, it was already closed for the off season and that sadden us. So on our first day in Phippsburg (in fact at the Hermit Island Campground), it was kind of compulsory for us to go dine there. Very warm welcome, we were sat at a table near the bar where a pretty nice... More

Both the lobster and clam soups were excellent. The Lobster and crab rolls were also very good. We also enjoyed the cole slaw which had a uniquely tasty flavor. I highly recommend this spot.

It was packed on the last Sunday of the season and we didn't have a reservation, but they offered us seats at the counter and a lovely evening followed. The hostess and our server were both extremely warm and friendly. We ordered haddock sandwiches and had an excellent meal . We chatted with a fellow diner at the counter and... More
