Seafood in Belfast

Looking for recommendations for a trip to Belfast, ME. I would like to buy some fresh Maine seafood like shrimp and lobster. Also interested in any dining suggestions.

Much thanks

  1. I don't get out to the Belfast area much. What I do know is that in Maine along the coast, you'll see a random truck or van on the side of the road selling seafood. Some of them may look a little shady, but most have pretty darn fresh seafood.

    I live in Rockland and work in Camden, and I go by three different "trucks" on Route 1 on the way to work. I've got nothing but good stuff from Delano's (near the Samoset intersection) or Dad's Seafood (right in between Rockland and Rockport).

    If you're looking for more of a storefront place, you may want to check out Jess's Market in Rockland. Occasionally we'll go through Jess's at work for special order stuff (monkfish, etc), and its all been top notch quality.

    Regarding dining suggestions, again, I'm not that familiar with Belfast. If you're willing to drive a bit, here's a few places to look up:

    Hartstone Inn, Camden (where I work :p )
    Francine's Bistro, Camden
    Primo, Rockland
    Amalfi, Rockland
    The Edge, Lincolnville
    Atlantica, Camden

    Hope this was helpful, enjoy your trip!
