Nothing fancy, but the food was outstanding and at great prices. It's worth a visit to this beautiful Southern Maine seaside town.

We had the great opportunity to watch an amazing sunset while have a pair of lobsters each. It was worth the drive !!

Can't say enough about this place. We ate lunch there and the chowder was fabulous along with the lobster roll. Very cozy inside, serves beer and wine. At first you would think it is a take out place (which it can be) but we stayed and ate inside. Best lunch while in Ogunquit.

Casual dining of very fine lobster roll, had the double roll, very tasty meat. Friendly counter service and order came up quickly. Totally no complaints and next time we are here will definitely revisit. After completing travels around New England then I can hand on my heart state this place served up the best lobster roll anywhere.

We found this place accident as it was one of the few still open on the last weekend of the season and on a rainy day it was relatively quiet so we only had to queue for a few minutes. The service was so warm and friendly and the chowder and the lobster rolls were amazing and the best we... More

Right in Perkins Cove, The Lobster Shack offers great food, at reasonable prices, in a comfortable "seaside shack" atmosphere! The service was fast and efficient and the entire staff helpful and friendly. The best spot on the Cove!!

Description
Enjoy lobster, steamers, lobster rolls, chowder and a whole lot more in a friendly, casual atmosphere. Live lobsters caught by local lobstermen wait in tanks filled with ocean water coming straight from the cove. Choose your size and two sides. For all the taste without the work, have a lobster roll any way you like it...a quarter pound single, double-stuffed, triple, or an entire pound on a buttery toasted roll with or without mayo. The lobster wrap and lobster BLT are also recently added favorites. Homemade chowder made from an old family recipe is a great way to start your meal, there's no thickening flour just the perfect combination of clams, fish, potatoes, onions and spices in a milk and cream base.The "Shack" has been owned and operated by the Evans family since the 1980s and is proud to serve the hottest chowder and the coldest beer in town. Let Jason, his family and his crew provide you with a true Maine eating experience in the oldest restaurant in Perkins Cove...
