You can eat a great lobster roll at a picnic table overlooking the ocean. Dining inside is limited, so come at an off time if the weather is bad. I recommend the lobster roll and/or clam chowder. Of the lobster rolls I've had in Maine,...More

The Lobster Shack was wonderful! For someone who doesn't get to see the ocean that often, the experience was unforgettable. My husband and I had the fried clam boat, the burger boat, and strawberry rhubarb pie. Everything was delicious! And, the view was absolutely beautiful!...More
