Shacks/pounds with something tasty beyond lobster?

  • 2

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!

Thanks!

  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. http://www.fiveislandslobster.com/web...

    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.
