We had an early lunch, and decided to split a lobster roll. The counter man suggested the basket because it included cole slaw. Great choice. A very casual dining room with 6 or 7 tables. We were glad we got there early, 11:15 because before our food came there was a line with 10 or more people. The seafood market... More

Best place to stop around the Camden/ Rockport area for authentic side of the road Maine seafood. All the food is amazing, I personally love the Lobster Roll good quantity for a fair price

This was recommended to us from a local and we loved the food! It was our first lobster rolls and they were delicious! Also had the haddock which was great. Very friendly staff. Everything was fresh and so good. You can eat outside at several picnic tables or go across the street and eat inside where they sell fresh seafood.... More

Thanks for coming by! We have had to switch to our fall hours earlier than normal this year due to a area wide labor shortage. The shack has moved to its winter home across the street but all items are available through the sea food market! More

The fried scallops are to die for!! So were the clams. Both with light batter, golden brown, and hot and crispy. Fries perfectly done.

This is a must stop while in Camden for fresh, casual local seafood. I would also recommend the smoked hamburgers if one can tear away from the lobster and crab. Please note that posted hours can be erratic, so call ahead.

Thanks for stopping by and for mentioning the hours. This time of year labor starts to get very scarce around here and sometimes we have to adjust to match what we have available for staff. We normally try and hold off until October to change hours but this year has been particularly difficult in this area. We miss our college... More

This is our fourth summer in Rockport and Graffam's has become a regular, dependable lunch stop. The fried clams and lobster roll are what we gravitate towards, but other dishes have not disappointed. The roadside food truck nature of the place helps knock a few dollars off the price of the seafood. Service is quick and eating at a picnic... More

Went to Graffam Bros. in summer 2015. Excellent fried seafood. Clams & Shrimp- Went again in summer 2016- they were out of clams (it was around 5PM-- ) OK- it happens, but out of shrimp too? Based on eating here a year ago, I could say the food was quite good. Can't speak to summer 2016. On a side note-... More

Thank you for coming to our Shack! As you know we are part of the seafood market across the street. Each day we do our best to judge what the demand for seafood will be like on any given day. Since our seafood is fresh daily once it is gone it is gone for the day. Also on occasion the... More

Definitely worth trying this. No need to wait at the "Claw" in Rockland. Fast service, excellent lobster roll and clam roll. Fried haddock sandwich also excellent.

Stop here for your lobster roll fix! Delicious, overflowing roll with sweet lobster, and not overly sauced. Right now charming Rockport Harbor, which is a must-see. Afterwards, drive down the road to see the Belted Galloway cows along a scenic drive! We will stop here again next visit!
