This review is late for the season but the memory is still strong of how good the lobster was. If you go to Acadia NP, you need to stop at Trenton bridge lobster pound. If you need fancy go somewhere else. Set at one of...More

The experience is authentic and fulfills part of what a tourist is expected to accomplish while in Maine. The lobster was good but expensive for plain steamed lobster. You pay extra for everything...butter, crackers, slaw. The clam chowder was watery, the worst I have ever...More

Such a cool place! Counter service - pick your lobster and side dishes; lobster taken outside and placed into one of several boiling water vats. Very informal. Great deserts also.

This is a great place to have lobster. You picked your own lobsters, and they cook it outside. Highly recommend to go if you are nearby.

Honeymooning in bar harbor, this was our first stop before crossing the bridge. Very fun experience! We got to pick a live large or small lobster, with a soft or hard shell. They cooked it right outside, we got to watch! Got to order lots...More
