They were open last week and seem to have been open for at least a week before we arrived. Such a blessing since many places don't open much before Memorial Day.

Description
Phil & Kelly Corson welcome you to their family owned and operated lobster takeout restaurant. Previously located at our old location 864 State Hwy. 3, we have moved to our new location - a brand new building, more parking and full restrooms. The Corson family has been lobstering for generations. Captain Phil delivers the freshest catch daily. Customers can hand pick their own lobsters. We are most known for our lobster dinners of lobster, mussels, corn, and melted butter along with our "overflowing" lobster roll. We pick our lobster meat fresh daily sometimes twice. We provide the best of local seafood at affordable prices. We have outdoor seating only. Open late May - October. We've added fire pits and tower heaters for the ultimate outdoor eating experience!
