We went to Maine specifically for lobster. The OLP did not disappoint. The vegetables of the day (broccoli and carrots) were overcooked, but the lobster and clam chowder were delicious. You don’t need the butter for the lobster. Quite frankly, you don’t need the sides either.

They were out of their blueberry pie, so we will have to come back to try that!

The dining room is huge. If possible, ask to sit by the fire.

This place is hands down a ton of fun! My son started the summer out completely freaked out by Lobsters. After a few dinners here the staff helped him learn more about them and now he can’t wait to find a Lobster to give them a “High Five!” Staff is great! Lobsters are awesome. Be prepared for a decent tab at the end of the night, but frankly it’s a fun experience to build some lasting memories! Can’t wait to go back in 2018!!!

My husband and I love The Lobster Pound. We go ourselves and with friends and we've never had a disappointing meal.

They're not fancy. The sides are formulaic. They won't make a simple plain vegetable. But when it comes to the lobster and steamers they can't be beat. They are fairly priced. Always perfectly cooked. And the steamers are very well cleaned. Never sandy.

And the service is always excellent. Whatever we request, the servers always work very hard to provide.
