Best Place for Lobster Boston to Boothbay Harbor

quesam Jun 6, 2009 04:20 PM

My sister and I are driving from Boston to Boothbay Harbor in a couple of weeks. We're from South Florida and this is her first trip to Maine. Where can we go to get the best lobster on the water. She's used to Florida lobster and I want her to experience Maine lobster at it's best. Any other dining musts will also be appreciated.

    A few of my favorites, especially in terms of waterfront location, indoor and outdoor dining, and ultra-casual "Maine" atmosphere:

    In Kittery, Chauncey Creek Lobster

    In Freeport... Harraseeket Lobster

    In Boothbay / Southport... Robinson's Wharf

        Five Island Lobster Company in Georgetown, ME is as good as it gets, but it's seasonal.

          Pier 77 for best atmosphere and overall excellence for what you're looking for.

            Five Islands is wonderful. Great food, beautiful view. Pier 77 is a fancy restaurant. Five Islands you sit outdoors on picnic benches looking over the water at the 5 pine covered islands. just be sure you stop at a gas station after going over the bridge in Bath to use the restrooms as the portable ones at Five Islands are awful.
