Super friendly owner and staff in a cute little corner spot. Lobster rolls and Lobster salad were fantastic! The Lobster stew though, wow, I've never had any that even comes close!

Small shack serving lobster rolls and other things, situated near the parking lot at the harbor, not far from the footbridge. My husband ordered a lobster roll and blueberry soda. Since I thought the price for a grilled cheese sandwich was outrageous (I think maybe $7) I just sat and watched my husband eat. He said it was very tasty, but preferred hot lobster. The sandwich came with the obligatory Lay's potato chips and some melted butter and Cole slaw. The blueberry soda was delish. I ate the potato chips.

I imagine that the lines are long during peak season.

Shannon's makes a topnotch lobster roll, that's for sure. You can't do better than this, trust me. Lotsa meat, no mayo, clarified butter, funky setting, nice ladies running the joint ... the only reason for a four versus five star review is that I can't understand the religious fervor surrounding the lobster roll. It's the most basic cuisine imaginable. Anyone can boil a lobster, and serving it in a hot dog roll? All this for $21 a pop? I don't get it.

This little spot is off the beaten path but definitely worth finding! Best lobster rolls we've found in Maine.

It's a small spot with picnic tables and walk up service. The lobster rolls are fresh and undressed. Served with a side of drawn butter and chips. Delicious and very generous.
