I would go back to Maine just to eat here again. It's everything one might imagine when imagining a lobster shack. You can't get fresher or tastier lobster than this, and the setting is incredible.

My goddaughter recommended Five Islands in Georgetown as a new destination on a recent visit to Maine. It was perfect. We headed there for lunch after a picturesque drive to the coast which offered a few stops on the way home to shop for pottery and blueberries. The Lobster Company is a cluster of an ice cream shop, a full lobster and clams take out restaurant, and a "fast food" shack. The younger generation did hot dogs and chicken sandwiches but we went for the deep fried clams and shrimp baskets. The clams were the best. Generous portion. The shrimp were also good -- very tender -- more than enough for folks to share. There's only outdoor seating but plenty of it to sit in this great setting and catch up with the god kids. The shack has the best order number caller in the area! Can't wait to make a trip back!

Seafood shack on the dock surrounded by rocks for the kids to climb on, and fishermen coming and going. Really is an idyllic setting. Food is outstanding. Giant lobster roll. Great sandwiches--the Jenny Special is amazing. Fantastic and swift service. This August was our fourth year returning to the area and we never miss Five Islands.

This is a more or less traditional lobster pound. Fishing boats deliver lobsters to the pier and some (most) are destined for elsewhere, but some are cooked on the pier. Patrons sit at picnic tables (most are in the sun, but a few are under a roof). We ordered lobster rolls and coleslaw. The coleslaw was judged to be very average, light on the mayo (which was a positive) but thin on vinegar and a tiny portion for the $2 charge. We were told that the lobster rolls have 1/4 pound of lobster. I am skeptical. The lobster arrives in a toasted bun (think hot dog bun) and the toasting is nice. The bun has a very small bit of lettuce, and the lobster. The lobster seemed reasonably fresh and was tasty. Some thought that their lobster had rather tough pieces. At $18.95 for the lobster roll, we had hoped for a better experience. The place has a substantial following and is popular. This may be due to advertising and local tradition. From our perspective, the experience and food were average. If you visit, try to do it with plenty of sunshine left. That way the mosquitoes will not bother you. The views of the working harbor are quite nice.
