They do say that cheap seafood isn't good and good seafood isn't cheap and that's definitely the case here. I had the baked scallops and boyfriend had the lobster. Scallops were very tender and good. Lobster was best my boyfriend ever had. You order first...More

Location, location, location. Watching the sun setting over Boothbay Harbor was memorable. You stand in line to place your order, leaving you ample time to read the menu up on the wall. There are many choices. It is a seafood shack done well. Nothing fancy....More

The Lobster Shack was a big disappointment tonight. I expected the most amazing meal and was left wishing it was better. Last night we ate in Rockland at the Claw and it was immensely better. My crabcakes were half of the size of what I...More

Locally caught lobster is our specialty. Several hundred pounds are stored in our sea water tank. You may select your own from the tank and watch as they are prepared for cooking in our large outdoor pots. We have all sizes of the tasty shellfish, from one to four pounds. To those new to lobster, we will gladly assist on how to best eat them and explain the differences between hard and soft shell. The Outdoor Patio at The Lobster Dock The flavor of Maine is further captured in our other offerings. Stews and chowders are prepared daily from only the freshest ingredients. The shrimp and scallops we use are caught in the waters of the Boothbay Region. Clams are also supplied by local diggers most every day. Our mussels are grown on a salt water farm in Tenants Harbor. Fish caught in the North Atlantic are supplied to us from Boothbay Fish Dealers. We accept only the freshest available. It is not unusual for us to refuse deliveries that do not meet our quality standards.
