Shacks/pounds with something tasty beyond lobster?

We have two lobster lovers and two people who don't see what all the fuss is about. In an attempt to put 4 lobster shack/pound stops on the itinerary, I'm trying to lure the other 2 with something worth ordering beyond lobster. Does such a thing exist at Five Islands Lobster Shack, Lobster Shack at Two Lights or the Round Pond/Pemaquid Point lobster pounds? Also, if anyone can give me a reason to cut one of these lobster spots off my must-eat list that would be good news for my non-lobster loving husband!

  1. Five Island is essentially (outstanding) fresh (primarily fried) seafood and perhaps a burger. View is outstanding, but it's outdoor seating, so it's weather dependent for visitors.

    1. Two Lights menu is online, they have burgers and the setting is gorgeous...your two friends might finally realize what all the fuss is about.
      Dolphin Marina Cafe in Harpswell has a full American menu & serves great lobster. Shaw's near Pemaquid has a lot more on the menu than the lobster pound does, and a full liquor license.
