First visit to Maine. My son and I loved Lubec and Eastport. The people were very respectful and friendly. Quoddy Bay Lobster was more than we expected. The service was very professional and caring. The food very delicious - the lobster was so sweet there was no need for butter. We are returning this summer -flights are booked!

Last time we visited, we were most happy with the atmosphere, good, etc. Now, you walk up to an outdoor window, as opposed to going in where the action is, the lobsters rolls, while still tasty, are noticeably smaller, the outdoor are is more "orderly,"-- (this is a place on a dock, after all), and, to us, much of the...

We've been stopping at places like this for more than 30 years and have become progressively dismayed as some classic locations have become trendy or worse. What a treat to find Quoddy Bay Lobster. Great food, great service, and reasonable prices. Go early though - the day we were there they only had 2 servings of lobster stew left at... More

This is a great place to eat but it is seasonal. The lobster coul not be more fresh. Literally you see it come right off the boat!

The food and service is wonderful! The view of the ocean, the working wharf, and the fresh seafood is most excellent.

We ate here twice while vacationing in the Lubec area for a week. We had lobster rolls and also bought raw sea scallops to take with us for a meal back at our rental. We sat at the picnic tables and enjoyed our lobster rolls and a beer. On the first visit we watched a whale while we ate. We... More

I have lived in Maine for almost my whole life, and work in a restaurant making lobster rolls every day. Somehow this place managed to create what is possibly the best lobster roll. Their regular size, priced at 15.95, is a regular sized hot dog bun griddled perfectly and literally stuffed with at least four ounces of lobster - maybe... More

This is my all-time favorite lobster roll in Maine. I blame it on the deep, cold waters of the bay! They serve up everything delicious here, though. Steamers, stews, crab... all good! The best part is that the rolls come in different sizes, so if you want a $24 behemoth, you can have one...but... why not try a small lobster... More

Wow. Best lobster ever. Unpretentious, reasonably priced. Go for the lobster stew when on special! More lobster than stew.... Same with the fish chowder. More fish than potato. Fantastic!!! Water views of working dock amazing. Loved it!!

A welcoming addition to any visit to Eastport, Maine. Staff are well trained, the food delicious, and the low key, welcoming restaurant while not fancy will leave you with an appreciation of what it takes to succeed in the challenging environment of north east Maine. The Lobster roll that I had was filled with freshly picked lobster, a perfectly toasted... More

This is a seaside restaurants with outdoor seating only, serving fresh lobster, crab, clams, mussels and scallop dishes in a variety of ways. The chowda is to die for (not your standard, flour base, but a creamy seafood infused broth loaded with yummies). There are salads, wraps, rolls, children's portions and dinner size as well. There are a few items for land lovers, but no one in our group ordered any of them. There is a small gift shop offering local made mustards, relishes and other refreshments. Put it on your bucket list!
