Fresh, generous lobster rolls with bag of chips and pickle. Decent price. Outdoor picnic tables in a cozy relocation area, just 60 feet from old busy location. Love Shannon’s !!

Had the lobster roll and clam chowder, and both were spectacular. My wife said the chowder was the best she’s had in Maine! The owner says she makes the the chowder fresh every day from locally harvested, fresh clams.l—yum!

Travelled Maine, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Shannon’s and Reds (within a few miles) had the best lobster rolls. Shannon’s less crowded and better ambiance. Two couples in total agreement.

They promise a whole lobster on each lobster roll and they deliver. Not cheap at $20.47 ($22 with tax) including Cole slaw and chips and lots of melted butter to pour on top, but well worth it. This was absolutely one of the best lobster...More
