Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound is located on Route 3 at 1237 Bar Harbor Road in Trenton, Maine, just before the bridge onto Thompson's and Mount Desert Island. It is hard to miss with the row of wood-fired cookers out front smoking away and the big sign on the roof that says, "LOBSTERS". At the present time, the seasonal eatery features... More

This is the best lobster dinner place in the area. Well worth the price and wait. It is a la carte so it can get pricey but so worth it. We get the 2 lbs lobster and it is always great. casual dining place with some indoot tables and picnic tables outside.

Several years ago we were staying at Emery's Cottages on the Shore and passed by the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound on our way on to the cabin on Mount Desert Island. We went back to TBLP for dinner, my wife had a lobster feast and I had their crab salad sandwich (sadly, I am allergic to lobster). We returned to... More

This was our best lobster experience! Like to cook our own but we certainly don't have woodfired outdoor lobster cookers. Watching the guys prepare our lobsters was almost as good as the meal! We each had a 2 lb lobster & sides. This is a MUST Maine experience!

These people and their lobsters are simply amazing. Ordered my lobsters on Monday and,voila, they were there Tuesday morning. Terry was so helpful and pleasant to deal with. I will certainly sing my praises to everyone I talk to. No doubt I will be placing another order soon. Thanks Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound for sending a little bit to Heaven... More

When their restaurant isn't open because it's the off season they still sell lobsters retail out of the back. Pretty much Monday-Friday during business hours they are open. Just go to the back door and get what you need. Usually a couple dollars cheaper per pound than other places and they have a full ranges of sizes (up to 4.5#... More

Excellent food, great service, authentic Maine experience. Forget the hoity- toity restaurants and their high prices. If you came to Maine for a real lobster sandwich and a real lobster pound, eat here. Great service, great food. I eat here every day I'm in Bar Harbor and hope to do for many years to come.

This place was a little crowded but that's just a testament to how good the food is. We had the large lobsters, slaw and drink for a reasonable price. And the lobsters were delicious. You don't need to go to a fancy restaurant, just stop here.
