Been coming since I was a kid. Affordable and delicious. No frills just amazing lobsters, steamers and chowder. Pack your own picnic and beverages and enjoy a tasty meal. You won't be disappointed. Make sure you tip as they work hard and appreciate it!

SHHHHH! It's a well known locals seafood restaurant. Somehow the secret got out. No waiters, table cloths, silverware, china or even a menu. It can be a little difficult to find because it is off the beaten path. It is located on a side road to the right if you are headed north on Route 1, just past Perry's Nut... More

I have eaten at Youngs lobster pound on the dock for 35 years and it is consistently top notched. You can bring your own wine/beer and sides to eat, order their steamed lobster or/ and clams etc......and have a casual feast outside on the dock on pick nick tables. View of the harbor and sailboats , make all the mess... More

Great food with and interesting atmosphere. Our daughter's loved to watch the live lobsters. The food was fantastic and the outside dining offered a great view of Belfast and the Maine coast. Would definitely recommend.

By "lobster pound" what they mean is that the lobster comes in in the morning (alive) and when you arrive you pick your lobster in the warehouse, they steam it and you eat it out on the back patio (or upstairs seating). We sat out... More

Young's Lobster Pound is the place to get lobster around here. But the best part is that you can bring all the niceties - chilled Muscadet, candles, flowers, assorted salads, tablecloth, napkins, and turn a butter-soaked picnic table into an elegant setting for your lobster and steamed clams. You won't find the Muscadet here , so unless you want to... More

This how you eat Lobster. You do not eat Lobster in a fancy restaurant in major city with perfect table setting. You eat close to the Atlantic sea, when the sun slow going down, you bring your own favorite wine and some napkins. Directly from the sea and the boilers. FANTASICT!!
