My grandparents often spoke visiting Ogunquit, Maine. In 2016, I finally made it. This hidden gem is loaded with artisan boutiques and good Maine eating. The Lobster Shack is that, a shack where a huge vat of Lobster chowder is brewed from the catch of...More

The best place to have a lobster roll in Oqunquit. Walk-able to from most anywhere in Qgunquit - located in the picturesque Perkins Cove.

Great location right on the edge of the ocean very surprising to find this gem at the end of a neighborhood road. It can get touristy but well worth it. No frills dining but great food at great prices. Fresh is best!!!!

We came here for the lobster roll and loved it. This is only a small restaurant but we were lucky and got a table very quickly. The lobster roll was excellent and the atmosphere was great. We will definitly come back again.

The chowder was good, the fish tacos so-so. Some of the tables are very close together and can be uncomfortable for a tall person. (Hard to get in and out; we kept spilling our chowder and beer.) Portions were generous, prices a little high. Very...More

I can't believe I've been going to OGT/Perkins Cove for about 30 years, and never ate here! It's a small place; it looks like a real lobster shack. Tables inside are picnic style and first come, first serve. If it's busy, prepare to wait outside,...More

Enjoy lobster, steamers, lobster rolls, chowder and a whole lot more in a friendly, casual atmosphere. Live lobsters caught by local lobstermen wait in tanks filled with ocean water coming straight from the cove. Choose your size and two sides. For all the taste without the work, have a lobster roll any way you like it...a quarter pound single, double-stuffed, triple, or an entire pound on a buttery toasted roll with or without mayo. The lobster wrap and lobster BLT are also recently added favorites. Homemade chowder made from an old family recipe is a great way to start your meal, there's no thickening flour just the perfect combination of clams, fish, potatoes, onions and spices in a milk and cream base.The "Shack" has been owned and operated by the Evans family since the 1980s and is proud to serve the hottest chowder and the coldest beer in town. Let Jason, his family and his crew provide you with a true Maine eating experience in the oldest restaurant in Perkins Cove...
