“Great Lobster”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Have been coming here for as long as i can remember. The lobster is always cooked perfectly, the sides are ok, I don't ever order anything else so I can't speak to it. However on my last visit it was the Kentucky Derby and we wanted to get a drink in the bar and watch the race, the owner was in there and was very nice and even put the volume on for us. However a few minutes later a waitress came over and was so rude she said this cant be on and turned off the volume. It's a bar, and i was sitting next the the TV it wasn't that loud. She could have been a little nicer about it.

“Beyond The Best Lobster and Steamers anywhere on the planet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

You can't go anywhere that will give you lobster and steamers steamed in the lobster and steamer juices of the day - the flavor and cooking is absolute perfection. It's casual and you have to be ok with that and you will be very glad you came to this absolutely superior culinary experience. There is no place like the Ogunquit Lobster Pound, we've been around and nobody gets Lobster and Steamers like this place so if you want guaranteed delicious perfection then don't even think of going anywhere else. If you don't really know what lobster really is supposed to taste like, then go anywhere and you will be happy BUT if you REALLY know what lobster and steamers, very clean, are supposed to taste like - this is your place. Enjoy, I know I am, I'm on my way right now…..yum!

“Never going back”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

They served us inedible steak - literally rotted meat - it stunk very, very bad.

When we complained - they apologized and promised to take it out of the bill - well they took only $8.00 off from a $38.00 dollar surf and turf dish - $8.00 - really? For a piece of inedible rotted meat?- and they act like it was a great favor.

Hoping that our young son - who ate some of this meat will not get sick.

We were a regular - well, no more - the whole experience was very disappointing.

Buyers beware!!!

“Same old same old”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Had high hopes, but dashed and smashed again. Lobster was WA-A-A-A-Y overpriced and sides were plain. Insides seemed dingy and it was freezing cold. I wish I had eaten at home.

“Very Good Food, Family Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

We hadn't been here in several years since the menu changed. They used to have a great three lobster tail cold or hot salad special for thirty bucks but it was gone several years ago. We decided to give them another try. I had the ramekin of lobster, fresh and tasty along with a Caesar salad which was tasty but small, not bad just smaller than I am used to for an appetizer. They also have outdoor dining which we have not tried. This is not a bad restaurant but for 107 bucks for the three of us I would rather eat at other restaurants in town where the selection and variety of food is better. We may give them another try in June of '14.
