Come here everytime we are in Ogunquit and it never disappoints. The lobster rolls and the burgers are excellent. The vibes is great and the service is always good!

The chowder was good, the fish tacos so-so. Some of the tables are very close together and can be uncomfortable for a tall person. (Hard to get in and out; we kept spilling our chowder and beer.) Portions were generous, prices a little high. Very...More

I can't believe I've been going to OGT/Perkins Cove for about 30 years, and never ate here! It's a small place; it looks like a real lobster shack. Tables inside are picnic style and first come, first serve. If it's busy, prepare to wait outside,...More

Picked up nine Lobster Rolls to go, late on Saturday night, just before closing. Made quickly, they were a good value for the price and the e folks working the counter were very friendly.

You will not find a better lobster roll anywhere !!! Great chowder as well. It is a small place with picnic tables pushed close together. They also serve whole lobsters at a fair price compared to others in area. Only open 11-3, so get there...More

Everyone was so friendly even though it was busy. My first lobster roll-YUM! Great location to walk before or after food. Shops and sites are super.

Finally made it to Maine and checked another state visit off my list. (46 down, 4 to go!). Capped off a beautiful fall day in picturesque Ongunquit with a stop at the Lobster Shack. Can't get any fresher than being introduced to your live lobster...More

My husband and I have been eating here for decades. We both agree that this is absolutely the best seafood chowder anywhere (most local merchants seem to agree as well, because I see many of them here.) Lobster rolls are excellent and made the way...More

Our official closing day is Columbus Day, which is October 10th this year. However, if the weather is nice and we still have enough staff we may try to stay open until the end of the month.

Enjoy lobster, steamers, lobster rolls, chowder and a whole lot more in a friendly, casual atmosphere. Live lobsters caught by local lobstermen wait in tanks filled with ocean water coming straight from the cove. Choose your size and two sides. For all the taste without the work, have a lobster roll any way you like it...a quarter pound single, double-stuffed, triple, or an entire pound on a buttery toasted roll with or without mayo. The lobster wrap and lobster BLT are also recently added favorites. Homemade chowder made from an old family recipe is a great way to start your meal, there's no thickening flour just the perfect combination of clams, fish, potatoes, onions and spices in a milk and cream base.The "Shack" has been owned and operated by the Evans family since the 1980s and is proud to serve the hottest chowder and the coldest beer in town. Let Jason, his family and his crew provide you with a true Maine eating experience in the oldest restaurant in Perkins Cove...
