This was my favorite traditional lobster roll during my four-day girls' trip to the Portland area. The lobster was super fresh and so delicious that it didn't need to be dressed up with any extras. The setting is really lovely too. I'd definitely return!

Definitely the place to east lobster when visiting Maine! The small town of Five Islands provides a unique backdrop to your lobster experience. Bring your own wine or beer and indulge! Worth the drive and effort to locate it. Enjoy!!

Five Islands is an authentic Maine Lobester She'd, complete with lobster, steamers, corn, potatoes and chowder. A little pricey but to have seafood on a working lobster pier that is so fresh and tasty...it is worth every penny!

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.

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...More

Hi, You can contact the town and they should be able to confirm the date. Lobstering is part of the economy as is the restaurant business. Look forward to joining you there.

They closed on Columbus Day. In fact, they are only open weekends from Labor Day to season end. I can't wait to go again. SOOOO GOOD!
