We visited The Lobster Claw recently with a family group. The seafood was very good, as it always has been. The informal atmosphere was great for kids.

Not crazy about the order yourself window and seat yourself but I did love the food. Excellent lobster, fried clams and bisque. Fresh and well done. Would highly recommend.

Amazing food, comfortable atmosphere, family friendly, great staff. Lobster Claw serves the freshest most tasty lobster in Maine. Lobster caught fresh everyday. If you want great lobster, try Lobster Claw, you wont be disappointed.

We went for a post Ironman 70.3 meal. Worth every penny. We all got the 1lb lobster, it was delicious. All the sides were amazing. The staff were very friendly and would definitely go back. Loved this place. The patio is gorgeous as well.
