Great environment. Spectacular service. Select your lobster and talk to the cooks and get their recommendations. We met some local folks who recommended OLPR and it even exceeded expectations. Fantastic!!!

While it's now a major restaurant offering a full menu, all the best parts that I remembered from long ago are still around. The original pound where you pick your lobster, get the number and have it delivered to your table is just like it...More

We do not take reservations however, we do like a "heads up" when a large party is coming in. Please call the restaurant to discuss further when we open for the season. Thanks for contacting us.

Established in 1931 the Ogunquit Lobster Pound has been proudly serving the best Maine lobster for generations. Choose your own live lobster to be boiled in seawater in the traditional Maine fashion or try one of the many offerings from our full menu. Now in our 87th year, we continue our traditions of consistency, quality, and exceptional service. We eagerly look forward to another season of satisfied customers both new, and those who have been returning for years.
