The Lobster Claw offers a unique dining opportunity for its customers and a pleasant atmosphere. The owners have the own recipes and cook fresh seafood up daily from the ocean to your table. Prices are moderate but affordable.

First time there and absolutely loved it. One of a kind place and the staff make it! They were wonderful & talkative; just what a solo person usually wants. Donna especially was just absolutely wonderful!!! Highly recommend the hot lobster roll! It's just lobster on a roll without the work! Add on the hot (real) butter & you find your... More

My wife and I stopped into this historic, family owned, restaurant, in Soco, ME, while visiting the area to see our daughter. We liked our dinner so much we went back for lunch the very next day! We have shared steamers, lobster bisque, lobster, and fried scallops, clams and shrimp. All the food is top notch and prepared to perfection.... More

Nothing fancy here at the Lobster Claw, but the seafood is fresh and it's prepared in an immaculate kitchen. Order your food at an outdoor window, then seat yourself inside at the picnic tables or on the outdoor deck. Like I said, it's not a fancy place but it's clean and friendly and the food is great. There is a... More

You stand to make your order. They don't accept credit cards under $15. We ordered our dinner and than wanted something else. The something else had to be paid for in cash which we didn't have. Needed to borrow from our friends which was a little embarrassing. But the food is great and prices are reasonable.

We had great lobster roll here! You order by walking up to the window, and then your waitress brings the food out to you. I would have preferred ordering with my waitress, because she gave us good recommendations on some other food to try, had we talked to her first. Portion sizes are on the smaller size, so it would...

Stopped on our way out of town for vacation. We decided to get lobster rolls to start vacation with. The amount of lobster was very small for the price. Alot more roll than lobster. Expected bigger amount considering they are on the coast. Service was good and very friendly.

When asked if we could split the double lobster meal they replied there would be a $6 plate charge. I feel if someone is not that hungry they should be able to split.

The Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder were both very good as well as the stuffed lobster. Casual dining experience. Our waitress Donna was very nice and did an excellent job. Really enjoyed our visit here.
