This tucked-away oasis on Main Street is so much the real Maine lobster/crab place. It's basically a food truck, parked at the back of a shady lot with outside tables and a window where you order - but they bring your order out to your...More

We were in the mood for a lobster roll and happened upon this little, unassuming outdoor spot. The Lobster Shack did not disappoint! An absolutely delicious lobster roll piled high with fresh, delicious lobster meat. The cole slaw that came with our meal was not...More

As my wife said, even the slaw is good. If you want a real Lobster roll, this is the place to eat. Never fails.

We stopped here for lunch knowing at least one of us wanted a lobster roll and we were not disappointed. It's located on a corner on Main Street and it's a great little spot with gardens, trees and flowers surrounding it so there were plenty...More

I was on a mission to taste every lobster roll and crab roll I could in our weeklong trip to Maine. This crab roll was by far the best! Perfect balance of crab and mayo, with a buttery bun. The sides were also a step...More

We stopped by the Lobster Shack for lunch. Although it was a little difficult to find it was well worth the extra effort. We had the lobster rolls with Asian slaw topped with pickled green beans and a small slice of watermelon. The lobster rolls...More

Delicious lobster rolls and coke slaw right next to the Farnsworth museum. The shack has take-out rolls, sandwiches and chowders when you need a spot to rest your feet and satisfy your hunger after touring the Farnsworth.

The lobster roll is divine, but you MUST try the crab roll if you are only going to have one. Both have 5 oz of meat and are fresh and succulent, and the crab is some of the best tasting crab we've ever had. The...More

I am not the owner but one of the reviewers. The patio has a sidewalk on two sides. I suspect it would be easy enough to have dogs there. If having a place that would accommodate dogs, I would recommend Waterman's Beach... More

We are a downtown take out truck. We feature the freshest seafood directly from my sons lobster boat! We make everything ourselves and hand pick our lobster and crab. We have awards for our lobster sandwich and also our chowder. We also offer pulled pork and roast turkey salad for sandwiches. We do many soups and chowders always served with our own corny bread. Salads of local greens and veggies that include our own dressings. Homemade baked beans with hot dogs! Daily specials. See you soon.
