Brenda's is somewhat rustic, but very popular with locals and those in the know. Seating is at picnic tables inside or out and you order at the counter or the outside window. Brenda and her mother Beverly are the cooks and also the source of news on all the local doings. The lobster rolls are generously filled and come with chips. You can also get a side of homemade cole slaw (the secret ingredient, not so secret, is crushed pineapple), fish sandwiches, fish chowder, steamed lobsters, and other seafood sandwiches or a burger, beef or turkey plus French fries and onion rings. We have been regulars here for years and always enjoy the food and the updates. It is open Tuesday through Saturday (in season) for lunch until about 7 pm. Cash only is accepted.

If you are in Boothbay, be sure to take the time to cross the swing bridge and explore Southport Island, and stop for lunch at The Lobster Shop. Brenda (the owner) has a large menu of delicious seafood choices, as well as burgers and other options. Her mom Bev bakes cookies, homemade whoopie pies, and several other dessert items. They will make you feel very welcome in their shop, and will be happy to give you tips and recommendations on things to do in the area. Great lunch spot!

The Lobster Shop is a small restaurant, family owned and operated, from catching the lobsters to cooking, baking and serving. We have gone there for years. Best fried Maine shrimp anywhere! Somewhat limited hours - call ahead to be sure. Incredible homemade whoopie pies.
