We went in Mid June, didn't see much- change with the new owners and management. That's fine for me, i liked it before. It's a pretty typical Maine Lobster restaurant, you already know what you're going to get. We've been many times in the past....More

We were lucky enough to get in for dinner before the close of the season. Best lobster and fish in the area. Simply prepared, cooked to perfection. Home made pies and ice cream. Swift service. Only nudge was the wine list which is really small...More

Away from the touristy places, this quiet part of town offers three restaurants. We chose this one for its deck on the water. The prices were better than the other two. Very relaxed place to dine after a day of hiking. The food was just...More

Too austere - no bread or crackers and cheese - coffee is not offered but should be included with meals if it isn't - the food was cooked to perfection but the atmosphere was awkward - the waitress was efficient and pleasant

We ate lunch at this restaurant and the fried haddock sandwich was good, the spinach salad and clam chowder were delicious. The pricing and serving were good.

We found this place when driving and stopped in. It was excellent. Not fancy, but who needs fancy when slurping lobster! High quality and just what I needed to make my visit to Maine complete.

The Lincolnville Lobster Pound usually opens for Mother's Day. You may want to try The Whale's Tooth Pub. It is one of our favorite especially on the weekends when they have live music.

At The Lobster Pound, our philosophy is simple: serve great food and treat guests like family. That philosophy was born in 1926, when The Lobster Pound served its first customers in the exact same spot where it stands today. From day one, we’ve been committed to providing a high quality meal and outstanding service to every guest who walks through our doors. What began as an outdoor lobster cooker has grown into a 260 seat iconic establishment. The Lobster Pound has become a staple in the Lincolnville community and a second home to families from both here and far away. As we head into our 92nd season the tradition continues for this to be a place where you can enjoy an authentic Maine dinner while catching up with old friends, meeting new ones, and celebrating family milestones. The Lobster Pound is a dining tradition that has been family orientated for generations, a place where you can take a moment, connect through real conversations and enjoy an excellent meal with the important p
