This restaurant is always a staple when we vacation in Maine. Every year for the past 8 years, without fail, after we found it.

The clerk at our motel told us to go early or we would have to wait. We beat the crowd and were seated promptly. Eating lobster was on our bucket list for our Maine visit and we were not disappointed. The lobster was good the service was friendly, courteous and checked back on us several times. While we were eating the people waiting to be seated began to grow. It was a good dining experience.

Been traveling to Acadia National Park for over 40 years and made our first stop at Union River Lobster Pot. Just off Route One prior to Crossing the bridge over the Union River upon entering Downtown Ellsworth. Clearly a step up from a roadside lobster boil with very good seafood. Have added this restaurant to our list of places to eat on the way to Bar Harbor. It joins Riverside Cafe, Finn's, and Martha's as one of our favorite places to eat when passing through or stopping in Ellsworth.

Relaxing, friendly and very good food.
Six of us dined there and the food was excellent. The service is equally good!

The boil pots are outside at the entry , so you can actually watch the Lobsters take the dive.

I ordered the Haddock and it was excellent. Wife ordered the Lobster Mac & Cheese, and while it was very good, it was a bit lean on the Lobster portion for the price.

We highly recommend it!
