Good food, good service, very busy during peak times. Call in your order to shorten the wait. The menu offers a variety of seafood fried and baked. They do also have choices for those who chose not to have seafood.

We went in the off season so no dining outside (Brrr!), but the staff was friendly and welcoming and the food yummy! We had fish sandwiches and fried clams, sweet potato fries and some interesting and fun soda from Australia!

The Lost Gull fish and chips has the best fried clams and onion rings around ! I wish they had fountain drinks instead of bottled beverages.

It's a tradition to eat at the Lost Gull when we visit family in Maine. I even take it as a treat for my grandmother in assisted living now that she's moved away from Oxford. Can't be beat!

We try to always get some seafood when we're in ME no matter how short the stay. This particular time was only a few days. Found this gem online TA actually and now its our new fav spot. We... More

This favorite spot for locals falls somewhat short of our expectations. The reason is simple: they use too much bread crumbs on dinners! Regardless of whether you order scallops or shrimp, it's smothered in salty buttery bread crumbs. We suggest using larger shrimp also. Other dinners such as fish and chips provides great fish, but the batter used lacks flavor.... More

We are sorry that our restaurant fell short of your expectations. We like to let the taste of the seafood do all of the work as far as flavor of the food is concerned. Like other good seafood restaurants, we use a cracker based breading for the seafood, which tends to gain some volume when it is fried, but is... More
