“Great Lobster Roll”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Delicious lobster roll! Close to Bangor Airport so it was a perfect spot to grab that last lobster meal before I headed home! I got the lobster roll lunch with sweet potato fries and cole slaw and it was delicious! Normally I prefer my lobster rolls Connecticut style (just warmed lobster with butter) instead of Maine style (mayo based lobster salad), but this was a great version of the Maine style. The meat was super sweet and the mayo wasn't overpowering. The sweet potato fries were delicious and cooked perfectly and the cole slaw added a nice freshness and crunch to the meal. Service was quick and friendly however, the only reason I can't give it 5 stars is because of the smell. Unfortunately the afternoon we went, there was a horrible urine smell that permeated through the place. I was a bit put off from eating there, but since we were seated outside it didn't bother me as much. I hope that was just a fluke and not representative of the cleanliness of this place. Otherwise, delicious meal and nice restaurant on the water.

“McGlaughlins at Marina”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We had brunch in August 2013 and were seated in the Patio with umbrella table and overlooking the Penobscot in Bangor. The Bloody Mary's were fantastic with fresh horseradish and a Giant prawn in each! Lobster bisque soup excellent and lobster claws with eggs great. The overall experience above average for Bangor and recommend for brunch and any meal should be just as good.

“entertaining experience”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We were referred to this place by the Harley shop while we waited for repairs. As we southern girls began mutilating our whole lobsters...some kind locals stepped in and tried to instruct on the proper dissection of this delicious crustacean! Besides being delicious, it was great fun! Very casual atmosphere as we dined on picnic tables outside. Yes, I'd do it again!
