location was the best part of this place. Seafood fresh and plentiful...nothing special on how it was prepared, just very good, fresh, simply prepared food. Good service.

Perkins Cove Lobster Pound is a wonderful option for lobster lovers in Ogunquit. You can eat your lobster at the quaint picnic tables in front or have steamed lobsters and sides delivered right to your door. We have ordered many times and are always impressed by the freshness and quality of the lobsters.

Well, in the land of lobsters, you have to stand out and they do. Fresh lobster nice people cute spot - very good food. Lobster isn't a budget meal - but this is a good value for lobster. I love lobster!

We stopped by August 26, 2016 and found out they were closed for the season. We made a special trip to go there based on Trip Advisor ratings. Their website did not address the closure thus we were very disappointed.

Yes we are sorry we closed! My grandfather pasted away in the late summer and it hit us hard. He was everything thing for us. Ask anyone from this area and they'll have a story for you. My mother and I couldn't do it emotionally. Just sad you had to give us a lower rating because we closed is just... More

Went to Perkins on a rainy evening in August 2016 and enjoyed it a lot. Perkins is a small family business, catching their own lobster and selling it to go (free delivery) or to eat at one of two tables outside. We first got some help on what to order and decided on 1 1/2 pound soft shell lobsters with... More

Best meal on our Maine vacation . AS previous reviewer states no frills mainly take out or delivery and a few picnic benches but fresh lobster at awesome rates. Got 4 lobsters about 6 lbs for almost the same price as my single 2lb lobster dinner at a touristy bar harbor location .

This place is the real deal if you simply love to eat lobster. No frills, just the freshest Maine lobster for ridiculous prices. Walk up, order & eat!! Terrific staff with great advice on exploring the area.

Fairly priced. Tasty, fresh lobster. You'll pay double down the street at Barnacle Billy's or almost anywhere else in town. I had a 2 pound soft shell lobster, a pound of steamed clams, and an ear of corn delivered to the B&B I was staying-all for $20 and change! $25 counting the tip I gave the delivery guy. I love...

Had steamers, fresh corn on the cob, and of course a 1-3/4 lb lobster (female) with soft shell that was delicious. Not fancy at all (like most of Ogunquit and surrounding areas). Medium priced.
