My husband and I love The Lobster Pound. We go ourselves and with friends and we've never had a disappointing meal. They're not fancy. The sides are formulaic. They won't make a simple plain vegetable. But when it comes to the lobster and steamers they...More

We had lobsters at the gender, weight that we wanted. Service just freindly and fine. The presentation was as usual, not fancy service but the focus is on the meal. Nice evening.

We had steamers and lobster's, both were wonderful. The only ambivalence over the mashed potatoes that were very starchy and sticky. Otherwise it was very very good.

We come here for a whole Maine lobster meal... complete with bib and shell cracking tools... they never disappoint. From picking your own lobster from the holding tank, to digging in to a two pounder, this place is just great family fun.

We do not take reservations however, we do like a "heads up" when a large party is coming in. Please call the restaurant to discuss further when we open for the season. Thanks for contacting us.
