HELP! Boss & wife in town; want to go to a lobster pound -

My boss and I are in Boston for a meeting; his wife arrives this evening; and they want to go to Maine tomorrow. I suggested Kennebunkport - now I am driving them AND they want to go to a lobster pound. Nunans is not open for lunch - so I need another one.....does not have to be in Kennebunkport proper. Anywhere in the area will do. They have never been to Maine; so I would like for them to get the lobster shack experience - but I also want to still have a job at the end of the day. (Just kidding) but all suggestions are welcome!) thanks!

I am not sure if this is too far for you, its closer to Portland, but this setting is great for lobster:

not sure who is open for lunch, but try these:

In Kittery, Chauncey Creek Lobster Pound, http://www.chaunceycreek.com/

In York, Cape Neddick Lobster Pound. See http://www.capeneddick.com/ Haven't eaten there myself, but I passed recently and the locatiin was primo and the parking lot packed (the way I judge a good restaurant)

In Ogunquit, http://www.barnbilly.com/

In lovely Cape Porpoise (Kennebunkport), Cape Pier Lobster, www.capeporpoiselobster.com/info.php…

I agree with Michele's recommendations, particulary one in Cape Porpoise (part of Kennebunkport) and Barnacle Billys in Perkins Cove (part of Ogunquit). Would not suggest going to Two Lights suggested by Arcadiafan. It's a great place for lobster, but much further north, about 50 minutes north of Kennebunkport, and not anywhere near a turnpike exit or major highway.

Oops, just noticed I posted after the 22nd, when you were coming up here to Maine. Where did you finally go for lobster lunch??

I had a written an "after the fact" post - but it isn't here; so must have saved it incorrectly.....

we ended up at Haraassekeet Lunch and Lobster for lunch - got the lobster roll and they loved it. They kept looking for the "dining room" - too funny. drove down thru Kennebunkport; did ocean drive, etc and then had dinner at Barnacle Billy's in Ogunquit. All in all a great day, they had a wonderful time and I still have a job!

TIA to all who responded - you can always count on Trip Advisor folks!
