Delicious lobster right before you get to the island home to Acadia National Park. We were looking for an authentic lobster shack that many locals like and recommend, and came to this one. Compared to prices in other states, this lobster was inexpensive, but by...More

Everything a la carte....seems odd for a lobster pound where you usually get a complete meal for the price. Lobsters good not great. Everyone recommends this place but so over priced for what you get.

Stopped at the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound to buy steamers. They had plenty of them and at a great price. The Worker weighed out the amount I wanted and then washed them all down and picked out any that were cracked or broken. Great service!!

We will be visiting in late September. Looking forward to some lobster! Wondering if you could give me a approximate price on your boiled lobster, lobster stew, lobster sandwich and crab sandwich. Thank you. Looking forward to seeing you in the fall.
