We look forward to our annual trip to Rockland and The Lobster Shack. Very generous lobster roll basket with dilly beans, chips, and cole slaw. Wish we didn't have to wait another year to visit!

This tucked-away oasis on Main Street is so much the real Maine lobster/crab place. It's basically a food truck, parked at the back of a shady lot with outside tables and a window where you order - but they bring your order out to your...More

I am not the owner but one of the reviewers. The patio has a sidewalk on two sides. I suspect it would be easy enough to have dogs there. If having a place that would accommodate dogs, I would recommend Waterman's Beach... More

We are a downtown take out truck. We feature the freshest seafood directly from my sons lobster boat! We make everything ourselves and hand pick our lobster and crab. We have awards for our lobster sandwich and also our chowder. We also offer pulled pork and roast turkey salad for sandwiches. We do many soups and chowders always served with our own corny bread. Salads of local greens and veggies that include our own dressings. Homemade baked beans with hot dogs! Daily specials. See you soon.
