We went here with friends to enjoy a beautiful September day eating lobster outdoors the Maine way. We were not disappointed. We started with a dozen fresh oysters which were briny and fresh. Then I had a lobster roll (served on a while wheat roll) and my husband had a fresh clam roll. Both were delicious, although on mine there was more roll than lobster. For $22 I would have liked a little less bread and more lobster. You have a ringside seat to the harbor and it's a lovely way to enjoy the afternoon. Part of the outdoor seating is veered with a tent so you can escape full sun if you want.

What could be better than eating freshly caught lobster cooked right before it's served to you right on the pier! A perfect night. We weren't aware that you could bring your own beverages alcoholic or non, so keep that in mind.

The only way to really experience eating lobster in Maine is to eat it on a dock, on the coast of Maine. We have visited Muscongus Bay Lobster many, many times over the years and usually make it a top stop when touring friends from out of state. The lobster and clams are always great. My only issue is the price and the nickel and dimeing...The view is gorgeous, but you definitely pay for it. I get that this is the only time for them to "make hay while the sun shines", but the price we paid for cooking, add ons, etc...is now out pricing us. We may need to look for a new, more reasonable priced place. $7.99 + butter, for 1 lb. of steamed clams, really???

Just stumbled across this place about 10 miles off highway 1. Locals place. The freshest seafood served plainly. No alcohol. Fantastic bay. You can tell the locals. They bring tablecloths and candles. Was quiet at lunch but gets busy in the evening. Toilets interesting.

We ate here on July 26th. We found it crowded, but the quality of the food (lobster roll, whole lobster) did not live up to the "busy-ness". The lobster roll, which was offered with mayonnaise only, was blah, and the bun made no positive contribution to the sandwich. The whole lobster was just okay, but both choices were significantly more expensive, and not as good as another lobster pound in the area. We would not return here if we visit in future.
