Just because you had Lobster on the Queen Mary does not mean that you had a quality Lobster Feed. This is the place that rates... More

Excellent food, great service, authentic Maine experience. Forget the hoity- toity restaurants and their high prices. If you came to Maine for a real lobster sandwich and a real lobster pound, eat here. Great service, great food. I eat here every day I'm in Bar Harbor and hope to do for many years to come.

Thanks for the lobster this weekend. It was hard to find hard shell and you saved the day! We appreciate it, and will return for more!

This place was a little crowded but that's just a testament to how good the food is. We had the large lobsters, slaw and drink for a reasonable price. And the lobsters were delicious. You don't need to go to a fancy restaurant, just stop here.

For us this was a very unique dining experience. Your lobster is weighed and cooked outside over a wood fire. A definite must try! For non lobster eaters they serve great hot dogs. The blueberry pie is a must!

Back to MDI for 2016 and several visits to Trenton Bridge for great lobster. It's plain, it's simple, it's direct, and the focus, for us at least, is just on the excellent lobster. Hard shell, about 2.5 lbs each, drawn butter, and we're in heaven! Take your time, get all the meat, savor the sweet succulent meat properly cooked in... More

Although we are no lobster experts (other than the multiple occasions we had lobster in various forms in Boston, NH and Maine), we were sure that we had chosen one of the best places in Bar harbor by the long lines in this establishment. Although the line was long, they have organized the logistics in such a way that the... More

Early dinner. Looking forward to trying out the place. Ordered 2 lobster dinners and side order shrimp. Very expensive. Waited and watched several behind us get there meals. Finally got our order and lobster and shrimp was tough chewy and severely over cooked. Could not even chew it. We were thoroughly disgusted. Won't ever go back

This was our first lobster pound. At first we were worried because the line seemed to be out the door. We didn't know what to do exactly. Luckily a couple who had been there several times gave us the scoop. Step 1. get into the line to the right. In this line you will tell the attendant how many and... More

This was the first of our "chasing lobsters" experience along the Eastern Seaboard. After trying six or seven places over the week (Maine, NH, Boston) we have to say that this was the best. The lobsters were cooked perfectly and if you pick up when called - everything is warm and tasty. Looking back, we wish we had skipped some... More
