The view is spectacular and that is pretty much what you are paying for. Food is OK - average. Nice that you can bring your own and sit on the benches.

We watched the sunset at Two Lights and then we headed in The Lobster Shack for a quick dinner. It was great and they have really tasty pies, too. The Shack is furnished with a lot of old sailor stuff, which I found adorable. Great ending for a great day at the Maine coast.

My mom and I made the short drive from Portland to Cape Elizabeth. The scenery was well worth it, and the food was great! If you want a fancy, overpriced lobster dinner, this is NOT the place for you. Customers order inside at the counter and pick their own table inside or at one of the many picnic tables outside....

We drove here today from Boston. We were visiting Boston for the first time. We saw how close Maine was and We decide we should go to the lobster shack because I saw it on tv.. and I checked trip advisor and it said they were opened but I guess I should have tried calling. When we got there it... More

On the day we visited, the wind was blowing and the cape was completely socked in with fog. The little shack offers indoor and outdoor seating right at the ocean’s edge and there’s a cute gift shop next door. The lobsters were perfectly cooked and the sides were delicious. The front display case if is full of homemade desserts. We... More

My daughter took me here when I went to visit her this past July. My grandson was also with us. We all ordered the lobster, which was the Maine attraction, of course. While we were here, we took in the scenery, especially the beach. And it's not far from the airport.

Well, the photogenic lighthouse gets one's undivided attention, and it is worth it, even though you are probably not the only photographer scrambling over the rocks to try to capture that award-winning National Geographic/Yankee Magazine photo. But it would be a shame to miss a chance to have a great lobster roll while you recharge your batteries. The Lobster Shack... More

We were in Maine in mid-May so it was still chilly. We opted to eat inside but then went outside for some pictures and to "touch" the ocean water when we visited the Lobster Shack. The lobster rolls were not large but tasty. The fun decor and the location make this little Lobster Shack a fun place to visit. It... More

This was recommended by my friend. Only could visit for 2 hrs. But, so worth the wait. We ate lobster, lobster stew, and lobster roll. Holy moly. Wish I could go again today. Beautiful day, with great view and temps were still nice for us to sit outside! It far surpassed my bucket list item! Thank you!!!! Maybe one day,... More
