PERRY'S LOBSTER SHACK in Surry, Maine What a meal with luck we found at Perry's Lobster Shack And to be sure it was the best, we kept on going back Let's start with the location, can't find a prettier spot Nestled on a tree-lined cove, a splendid view we thought With tables out on the jetty, water lapping all around...

We enjoyed dining with friends at Perry's this past week while vacationing just down the street at a great little cottage. If you go here, go for the lobster (why else). I ordered some smoked mussels and they came cold in a refrigerator container from an off-site merchant. Not what I was expecting, although they were good. The crab dip... More

We visit this place by boat several times a summer for lunch. The menu is limited, but everything is very good, simple and fresh from the ocean. I love the mussels, clams, lobster rolls, crab rolls and coleslaw. The view is great, Bring your own wine or beer. Cash or check only, they don't accept credit cards.

Went here for lunch. Location right on the docks is great. Service was excellent. But the lobster - oh so good. The lobster roll is a little different - it is served on a round kaiser roll instead of the typical hot dog bun. Was amazing. We got two crab rolls as well, and they were equally as good. Whole...

Delicious food, and helpful staff. Lobster roll was my favourite, and the blueberry pie was great too. But make sure to bring a sweater!

Through our holiday we've had a range of dining from high end through to simple eats. This place however is the most honest and is amazingly tasty. For dietary reasons I have to limit my intake of shellfish else I'd be there for every lunch and dinner. I therefore find myself waiting for the next visit like Christmas - only... More

Delicious, perfectly cooked lobster, (boiled in sea water) hard or soft shell, the sweetest steamers imaginable, tables in the afternoon sun on a dock, genuinely friendly servers, oh, and don't miss the home made blueberry pie! And, if all of that isn't enough, how about watching a bald eagle on the nearby shore! If you're anywhere nearby, Perry's is a... More

Went there a little later in the evening and was packed. 40 minute wait on a table but a server took our order while we were waiting and the food came just a couple minutes after we got a table. We ordered a soft shell and a hard shell. Both came out and had great flavor, the right amount of... More

Cute pier setting with the freshest seafood and byob policy. It offers a small menu but should serve you well if you desire only local catches. Fast friendly service, fair prices.
