I've enjoyed Muscongus Bay Lobster every summer for the last 5 years. It's a toss up whether I enjoy the view/smell or the food more. There is ample seating on the decking (all of the seating is outdoors, some under overhead cover) overlooking the bay....More

What could be better than eating freshly caught lobster cooked right before it's served to you right on the pier! A perfect night. We weren't aware that you could bring your own beverages alcoholic or non, so keep that in mind.

Just stumbled across this place about 10 miles off highway 1. Locals place. The freshest seafood served plainly. No alcohol. Fantastic bay. You can tell the locals. They bring tablecloths and candles. Was quiet at lunch but gets busy in the evening. Toilets interesting.

Do you ship out of state? This is the place and setting for the best lobster in Maine. Would you please bake more cornbread. It is unbelievably good but sells out quickly
