Little road side lobster place with great food, very reasonable prices, good beer selection and atmosphere. You stand in line outside and place your order. Enjoyed meeting other visitors while waiting. The lobster was great as was the lobster chowder. I highly recommend!

I passed by this place and asked about their Lobster rolls. Being from CT, we are accustomed to lobster sautéed lightly in butter and served on a hotdog roll. In all my visits to Maine, I was clueless that they serve theirs with mayo. OK....More

Stopped in here after visiting the Farnsworth Museum across the street. The lobster rolls are huge. The lobster is prepared cold with mayo on a very nice roll. Comes with chips, coleslaw and pickled green beans, which are great. Everything was fresh and flavorful and...More

We look forward to our annual trip to Rockland and The Lobster Shack. Very generous lobster roll basket with dilly beans, chips, and cole slaw. Wish we didn't have to wait another year to visit!

We are a downtown take out truck. We feature the freshest seafood directly from my sons lobster boat! We make everything ourselves and hand pick our lobster and crab. We have awards for our lobster sandwich and also our chowder. We also offer pulled pork and roast turkey salad for sandwiches. We do many soups and chowders always served with our own corny bread. Salads of local greens and veggies that include our own dressings. Homemade baked beans with hot dogs! Daily specials. See you soon.
