This is where you go if you want real fresh off the boat seafood! The prices are low! Pick your lobster out of the tank, they just caught it. Take it home alive or they will cook it for you. Or order from the menu. No matter what you get it is good! The guy who runs the lobster tank... More

Absolutely love this place. You go in the garage and pick your bug and then go to the little shack to order the set up which is the butter, napkins, bib, etc.... They do not offer beverage besides a soda machine so you are encouraged to bring your own. You can purchase great sides, lobster alternative sandwiches and some basic... More

Sit outside and soak up the view. Clam chowder was awesome, lobster roll was full of chunks of sweet meat. Bring your own drinks. And after you are done, head over to the shed below and pick up some lobsters to take home. They closed on October 10th (Columbus Day) for the season.

We go to Erica's when we are in Maine each fall. The food is always delicious and reasonably priced.

Wonderful lobster shack and outdoor eaterie. Fresh lobster -you can choose your own to be boiled and talk to the owner about it all. Watch the lobster pots coming in off the boats then eat a feast in the sun. Totally the best experience and food you could have. This is the real Maine. A beautiful place.

Erica's never disappoints for fresh lobsters to take home. Toby can pick a size out of the tank within tens of a pound! Very welcoming. Also try the seafood shack with great fried clams and oysters. Worth stopping before or after you grab your lobsters. Get there early in the day for soft shells or they'll be sold out. The... More

We had a lot of fresh steamed lobster on out trip to Maine but this was our favorite. We bought soft shell although they weren't real soft so we got plenty of meet. The owner picked and cooked out lobster and we bought some sides at the stand. Many people skip the lobster and just get fish or chowders at... More
