Chauncey Creek Lobster company is iconic to Kittery Point, ME. The staff is friendly and the ambiance is very New England.

This is how lobster should be enjoyed. Outside, on a picnic table, after being steamed in salt water! We take all of our out of town visitors to Chauncey Creek - making a stop at Smuttynose Brewery for a growler of beer on the way. This summer, we took guests from California and Hawaii, and celebrated my mother-in-law’s birthday at... More

Although this place was a little bit out of the way for us, we made an effort to find it and eat there because of the high recommendations from our cousin- no regrets since the food was way above average. We had Shrimp Coconut Shrimp with fries (yummy) and fantastic lobster rolls. It is BYOB (Bring your bottle place) and... More

We just LOVED Chauncey Creek!! We went to several lobster pounds on our trip and this was the BEST!!! The lobster was incredibly fresh and the chowder was delish!! We will definitely be going back anytime we are in the area.

Recommended by our innkeeper, we tried this restaurant one evening. BYOB and anything not on the menu. So much fun! Pick your lobster and find a table (two hour max if there are people waiting). Then wait for fantastic service and food. We had so much fun and were so full, we went back the second night and started all... More

Three of us went for dinner and decided to try a variety of items from the menu. This is a fun spot to dine being by the water, but the food was just average-to-poor. The steamed lobsters were fine, but the rest of the items were disappointing. And this place is not cheap. Our bill was over $100 for three... More

We were in Portsmouth NH and decided to drive over to Maine to get some lobster. We tried one restaurant and were told that there was a 2-hour wait, so we drove around a little and found a lobster wholesale establishment. We stopped and asked where the locals go for good lobster in the area--not fancy, but really good. We... More

The location is really nice as you can sit on the pier by the creek. Parking can be a challenge. The lobster was very good. The place can get really crowded

What a great place. Pick your lobster from the tank, bring your own sides and wine and enjoy a nice dockside picnic with lobster that is delivered daily. In Southern Maine there are many places to enjoy lobster, but only at Chauncey's do you get the true Maine experience. Nested right across the border from New Hampshire, and tucked off... More

Whenever we go to Maine - between Mother's Day and Columbus Day - we make Chauncey Creek our first stop. We've been doing this for years, and it has become a tradition. The setting is idyllic, the helpers are charming, and the lobster and clams (especially) are always fabulous. The fact that it is BYOB is a definite plus. It... More
