    Over the bridge in Bath, a few miles take the road to Georgetown/Five Islands to the Five Islands Lobster Co. Great lobster, crab, fish sandwiches, corn, potatoes etc. with a great view of the five pine tree covered Islands. Seating is outside so avoid on a rainy day.

      Harraseeket Lunch and Lobster in Freeport on the Harraseeket River. It's a BYOB pound and they have Whole and lobster rolls, steamers, fried food, desserts. Outdoor picnic tables and some inside seating.

          We loved Cook's on Bailey's Island. Excellent lobster and Maine steamers. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Great ride too.
