Perkins Cove is a really unique portion of the beach area. Parking can be difficult yet we found a spot even though it was a busy Friday night. We walked the trail around the beach area and then were enticed with all the wonderful sights...More

You may have to wait a little bit outside but the food is good and the service is friendly. A lobster roll comes with coleslaw and chips. The bun is nicely toasted.

Loved food and ambience right on Perkins Cove. We've eaten lobster every day for the past week and this was as good as any!

I must preface my review by letting you know I am from CT and we eat our lobster rolls warm - not as a salad. They said they would make it this way but when I got it it as cold lobster without mayo dressing...More

We stoped for a long awaited lobster roll. The staff was amazing. All smiles and very helpful. The rolls were pretty much standard. 1/4 lb on split hotdog roll.... grilled and buttered. Tried with melted butter.... made roll soggy of course. Next time back to...More

Great price on 2 lobsters, coleslaw and corn... $20. Once you arrive you find a table and order at the counter. They then bring your food out as its ready. Casual, "hole in the wall" with great food and character. It's a great choice when...More

We were walking around Perkins Cove and found this place for lunch. We each had chowder and a lobster roll. EXCELLENT but a bit pricey. You order in a line and they bring the food to your table. Pleasant staff even on a busy day....More

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...
