Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 October 2016 via mobile

The food was simply amazing. Prices were well below other area restaurants. No inside seating. That added to the experience. People there could not have been nicer or more accommodating.
We went twice in less than 24 hours. We considered changing travel plans to sneak in another meal.

This was a great meal. Very simple menu with a great set up. You can go out back and watch them cook your meal and see how it is done. I will definitely go back next time I am in town. The owners are great and happy to talk to you. Very good pricing and large portions.

This place is amazing!! It's only outside seating but that is more than OK because the food is just the best!! Fresh, fresh, fresh lobster!!! The crab claws were perfect and the lobster is the best I have ever eaten!! Make sure to get some of the corn!! Perfect spot for an afternoon lunch on a brisk fall day!! If you are looking for something a little more tame the lobster roll is fantastic as well!! Two thumbs way up!!

Now I understand why people live lobster. This place is great. Get out of the town of Bar Harbor where lobster is too expensive. Seven miles. $8 for a lobster Cooked right there. Eat by the fire. It's perfect.

It's much easier to find than you think, and well worth it. Super friendly, super fresh and Super Good. Stopped by after a day of hiking, sat by the fire pit while enjoying some of Maines finest. Make sure you go around the side and chat with the cooks, he shared many lobster stories. Absolutely can't miss this stop if you in the area.

So happy you searched us out at our new location. It has worked out so much better for here as we now have a inside bathroom facility, expanded menu more than just boiled lobster, allot more parking and also adult beverages. We are thinking of adding some fried foods next season. Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a wonderful review of our family and also our business. Hank T. TTL
