Quaint and friendly. Tight space but a good Amy of items for purchase, just overpriced. Offer food: sandwiches, lobster and Clams.

We were told that we could get a lobster in this general store. Skeptical, we called and indeed we were told (in cryptic Maine style) that this was the case. So, six of us visited. When you enter you do not immediately see the restaurant part. But, if you persist you will see a counter where there is counter seating and then a small porch that has a few small tables. We ordered lobsters. These were soft shell (which did not expect, but were fine) and prices at something like $6.75 per pound. They came with french fries. The fries were really quite good. The lobsters were very good too (once you accepted that a soft shell lobster has less meat in that new too-big shell that it might appear just looking at the shell). All in all a reasonable experience. Apparently this is a spot frequented by locals for all manner of things, including local conversation. In Georgetown, most locals know other locals and all about them.
We've done carryout streamed lobsters several times this summer and GCS's are wonderful. Fresher is impossible to get, and if you don't need the view at 5 Islands (or have your own) this is the smart way to go.
Go back in time at this old country store, recommended to us by a local. We went in for coffee and are glad we did. The place is packed full, with old wooden floors and a very old feel. At the back of the store there is a coffee/dining bar with stools.
We went to the store probably five times in two days… Part of it I just enjoy talking to people. The back room has some local crafts that the women have made to sell for a group called working women of Georgetown. We got everything from beer wine directions and hospitality! Stop in tell em the Georgia gal sent you!! Support local!!!!!
