Great view and good service on a not very busy evening at end of the season. Lobster always a good choice, pick your own from the tank. Simple broiled halibut was good. Order half portions if not a big eater.

This place was a nightmare. We saw the bad reviews, including some very detailed ones, and it was true. It’s like this group of folks running it are used to conflict and awkwardness. We didn’t say anything, but made sure I would leave a review...More

While visiting Popham Beach for the day, we were turned away due to "parking" lot full. Being in an RV, we couldn't just turn around, so we continued down the road & discovered this restaurant purely by chance. The service was great, the food ok....More

We've always enjoyed an annual trip or two to Popham and look forward to a beach lunch - which is right on the beach. After a beach walk which is always an appetite builder we order our clam roll and lobster roll. This year my...More

they give all their parking to people to enjoy Fort Popham thus none for their would be customers. We elected to venture out of the area and enjoyed a great Lobster Roll at Red's Eats instead.

Have been going to Spinneys for 15 years and it's always good. Right on the water at Popham beach at the mouth of the Kennebec river. They have a full bar as well as both indoor and outdoor seating. Seafood is of course the specialty...More
