Five Islands Lobster Company Georgetown

Summer in Maine is never complete without indulging in a lobster dinner. If you are on the hunt for the best seafood in New England, look no further. Read on to discover five of the best lobster shacks in Maine.

3 of the Best Lobster Shacks & Restaurants in Maine

Five Islands Lobster | Georgetown, ME

No list of the best lobster shacks in Maine is complete without Five Islands Lobster. Coastal Living Magazine named this eatery one of the best seafood dives in the state, and also gave the shack recognition as home to one of the best lobster rolls in Maine! It is a casual eatery, and longtime visitors recommend ordering a meal, picking out your lobster, going next door to buy a cold six-pack (customers may bring their own), and enjoying beautiful views from the dock.

Cabbage Island Clambakes | Boothbay Harbor, ME

Cabbage Island Clambakes offers a one-of-a-kind dining experience. This island is more than an excellent place for lobster. It is an experience in itself! Your trip begins in Boothbay Harbor where you’ll hop aboard the Bennie Alice. The ship then takes visitors on a cruise to a small, private island off the coast of Maine. Once you arrive on the island, you can look forward to a hearty meal of fish chowder, lobster, potatoes and onion, corn on the cob, and the best blueberry cake in Maine.

Red’s Eats

A Maine tradition for more than 80 years, Red’s Eats in Wiscasset is terrific, and the lines are terrifically long! Sprague’s across the street has a shorter wait and is great as well.

Stay Near Them All at Grey Havens Inn
