We have been eating here for years. We bring all of our family and friends here when they come to visit, and they are never disappointed. Down East Lobster has tons of fresh lobsters just waiting to be enjoyed. You have three different size categories...More

My husband and I had 1 1/2 pound lobsters. They were good. Dining area not in good, clean shape and not a lot of room. Friendly help, but take note that it's a take a number, come get your lobster, clear your table style dining.

We had lobster rolls with a side of chips and cole slaw. Delicious! On our way home, we picked up 3 large select lobsters that they nicely packed for us and we put them in our cooler for the ride back to Boston.

It's more of a restaurant than a lobsters-to-go place and I also don't think they're open for the season yet. Try calling in May
