There won't be any outdoor venues for a lobster bake until mid-June. If you are going to be in the Boothbay Region that week you can get the indoor equivalent at Robinsons Wharf on Southport Island.
1) Are the clams and lobster cooked together? 2)Do they have a lunch and dinner option? What time does each begin and end? 3)Is drawn butter served with the lobster? Thanks.

Didn't see any reviews from May. Are they open for business in May and if so, is it a good time of year to go? This will be our second visit to Maine. Last visit was late October and we experienced a nor'easter. Very excited to experience Maine in May!
