I have eaten at Youngs lobster pound on the dock for 35 years and it is consistently top notched. You can bring your own wine/beer and sides to eat, order their steamed lobster or/ and clams etc......and have a casual feast outside on the dock on pick nick tables. View of the harbor and sailboats , make all the mess... More

Great food with and interesting atmosphere. Our daughter's loved to watch the live lobsters. The food was fantastic and the outside dining offered a great view of Belfast and the Maine coast. Would definitely recommend.

This was the most authentic lobster experience we had in our 2 week Maine trip. By "lobster pound" what they mean is that the lobster comes in in the morning (alive) and when you arrive you pick your lobster in the warehouse, they steam it and you eat it out on the back patio (or upstairs seating). We sat out... More

Young's Lobster Pound is the place to get lobster around here. But the best part is that you can bring all the niceties - chilled Muscadet, candles, flowers, assorted salads, tablecloth, napkins, and turn a butter-soaked picnic table into an elegant setting for your lobster and steamed clams. You won't find the Muscadet here , so unless you want to... More

This how you eat Lobster. You do not eat Lobster in a fancy restaurant in major city with perfect table setting. You eat close to the Atlantic sea, when the sun slow going down, you bring your own favorite wine and some napkins. Directly from the sea and the boilers. FANTASICT!! Young´s Lobster Pound & Seafood Restaurant gives you value... More

My husband was impressed by the freshness of the lobster. You could literally taste the salt from the ocean. They steamed them for us. The view while we waited in the car was beautiful! We had a spectacular view of the bay while it was snowing and the entire property was plowed and easily accessible during the storm. Prices are... More

Way too expensive and you do not get much extra. Tiny cup of butter that isn't even hot......tourist trap.
