I love this place, the lobsters are huge and kept in live wells, not tanks, less stress for them. We got two dozen and cooked them up within an hour. Absolutely amazing flavor, plenty of meat. The people were very kind and efficient.

Great little shack to get fresh lobster to cook or they will cook it for you. Nothing but lobster right off the boat!

The lobsters were literally right off the boat. There was lots of choices of sizes. They cooked them for us. We drove over to city docks and ate at the picnic table. A wonderful Maine meal. Staff were super helpful.

This is a the best place to purchase fresh caught lobsters dockside. You can watch the crates of lobsters being unloaded from the boats as they come in from clearing the traps.

It's the first experience we had with a soft shell lobster. We had never even heard of them. Larry got one cooked on site. They're smaller and sweeter tasting, we were told. He was handed a screaming hot crustacean in a bag and off we...More
