Nothing fancy here at the Lobster Claw, but the seafood is fresh and it's prepared in an immaculate kitchen. Order your food at an outdoor window, then seat yourself inside at the picnic tables or on the outdoor deck. Like I said, it's not a fancy place but it's clean and friendly and the food is great. There is a... More

You stand to make your order. They don't accept credit cards under $15. We ordered our dinner and than wanted something else. The something else had to be paid for in cash which we didn't have. Needed to borrow from our friends which was a little embarrassing. But the food is great and prices are reasonable.

We had great lobster roll here! You order by walking up to the window, and then your waitress brings the food out to you. I would have preferred ordering with my waitress, because she gave us good recommendations on some other food to try, had we talked to her first. Portion sizes are on the smaller size, so it would...

Stopped on our way out of town for vacation. We decided to get lobster rolls to start vacation with. The amount of lobster was very small for the price. Alot more roll than lobster. Expected bigger amount considering they are on the coast. Service was good and very friendly.

When asked if we could split the double lobster meal they replied there would be a $6 plate charge. I feel if someone is not that hungry they should be able to split.

The Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder were both very good as well as the stuffed lobster. Casual dining experience. Our waitress Donna was very nice and did an excellent job. Really enjoyed our visit here.

We've brought some lobster to eat in the evening. Great food and well cooked. Unfortunately they've not opened so much the shell, so it was really hard to eat them without tools (in part this is also our problem).

We've been traveling to Maine for 18 years now and are always in search of a new place to eat. We read several good reviews of this restaurant and decided to give it a try. We were really glad we did! Our waitress Donna was just a delight, friendly and happy to make suggestions! I had coconut shrimp for an... More

This place was probably once a drive up seafood stand that morphed over the years into a restaurant. Ordering is still done at a counter outside, and then your food is brought to your table inside or outside on a patio. We loved the clam chowder, very rich with lots of clams. We both ordered broiled scallops which were cooked... More

Another great trip to Maine, we returned to our favorite casual dining experience, The Lobster Claw and Pound near Old Orchard Beach, Saco, Maine. Starving from a day on the beach, we placed our order up front, sat in the A/C dining area and enjoyed a Mai Tai prior to our meal. I ordered the Lobster bisque and broiled scallop... More
