Oh me! The food was delicious. We tried the lobster bisque, lobster roll, red dogs, and shrimp basket. The lobster roll was my favorite! My son loved the shrimp. The waitress was phenomenal!

Was shopping at LL Bean and stopped in to the Lobster Cooker for lunch. The crab roll was delicious. Lobster bisque also very good. Would definitely eat here again.

Had the lobster roll ($18) and clam chowder ($5/cup). Very little "clam" in the chowder. Lobster roll was good, but never had it before so can't compare.

We stopped there for a light supper last evening. We went upstairs to the pub and enjoyed a relaxing hour. There are screens all around the small pub to watch your favorite sports show. We ordered the lobster rolls which were amazing and loaded with Maine lobster on a bed of greens. The only negative was that it was served... More

Hello Joan- Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate your time and your business. Our Lobster Rolls definitely hit the spot! Packed full of delicious meat, served with choice of mayo or butter, I'm drooling just thinking about it! We have the best source for calamari too, not chewy or tough like most. We lightly batter and fry... More

After shopping at the outlets, my friend and I wanted to have dinner in a restaurant close by; we stopped at "Lobster Cooker". The inside decor is very informal; you order in the front and then sit at the tables in the rear. The food is served on paper plates and the utensils are plastic. We both ordered lobster rolls...

Stopped here for lunch before visiting LL Bean. Three of us had lobster rolls & one had the mussels. We all had clam chowder, it was great. Lobster rolls with mayo were a hit & the mussels pleased as well. Kinda a sports bar, but not to loud. A good choice.

All in my party had bowls of chowder except one who had chicken strips. Compared to other places we had been on our trip these were small bowls equivalent to cups at some places. It was a small portion but it was good quality. One in the party had lobster chowder and returned it because it was cold. Generous amount... More

Our experience here was great. My husband and I ordered the lobster roll, fried shrimp, and lobster bisque. All were great, but the bisque was the best I have ever had. The food was ready super fast and was presented well. The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere great.
