Looking for authentic Maine experience? Check out Gurnet Trading. This adorable little establishment sits at the edge of Route 24 that leads from Brunswick into Harpswell. Though there is a few small tables inside and some lovely outdoor seating overlooking an inlet outside, this tiny little restaurant serves mostly take out. We usually get our food to go. It's a...

If you want the freshest and best local seafood around to either cook yourself or have them make it for you, This is by far the best place from Portland to Bath. Next best is up in Boothbay area. My wife and I often split a lobster roll as a snack when we drive by. Scallops from here are second... More

After Erica's closed, needed a seafood fix. Ordered grilled scallops-not what I expected. They were cut in thin uneven round disks and a bit overcooked. Fried clams, greasy-heavy crum; clams had a strong fishy taste and smell. The clam chowder, very good-rich &creamy. The seafood chowder was the best. REALLY good ! I have lobster rolls there before and bought... More

I've eaten lobster rolls up and down the Maine coast for years. I've been to the famous ones (Red's) and the not-so-famous. For $13, you get a classic lobster roll: split bun, toasted, buttered and stuffed with lobster that has the tiniest dab of mayo. No fillers, nothing to compete with the very fresh lobster meat. Maybe it's not as... More

I ate here a couple of times while visiting the area. I chose their lobster meal which included two 1-pound lobsters, a bag of steamed mussels, side item of coleslaw, drawn butter, and clam broth; price was about $23 cash. Seating outside is somewhat limited and most patrons seemed to get a take-out order. I elected to sit at one... More

Love stopping in this seafood market and restaurant. Best price for a fresh lobster roll that won't be over sized or over priced.

Have lived in Brunswick for many years and have never tried this place. Today was the day and we loved it! Great lobster rolls, pretty big seafood menu, reasonably priced and very nice people working there. Going back soon!

I specifically went to Gurnet's for fresh, shucked oysters. Arrived at around 12:30pm on a Thursday afternoon. 2 people waiting for food, 2 people eating food already. Ordered a dozen oysters and was told that they couldn't serve oysters at that time because it was too busy and they're hand-shucked. This 'rule' is not stated on their site. Maybe I'm... More

Everything we ate was delicious and reasonably priced. The lobster roll, fried clams and chicken finger were what we ordered the most. They had homemade blueberry pie that was to die for. The staff were pleasant and helpful as we had found an injured seal and needed to know who to call. When we are back in the area we... More
