3 of the Best Lobster Shacks & Restaurants in Maine
“Blue” Restaurant at Grey Havens Inn | Georgetown, ME
End your search for the best lobster restaurant in Maine when you dine with us at “Blue” Restaurant.

Five Islands Lobster | Georgetown, ME
No list of the best lobster shacks in Maine is complete without Five Islands Lobster. Coastal Living Magazine named this eatery one of the best seafood dives in the state, and also gave the shack recognition as home to one of the best lobster rolls in Maine! It is a casual eatery, and longtime visitors recommend ordering a meal, picking out your lobster, going next door to buy a cold six-pack (customers may bring their own), and enjoying beautiful views from the dock.
Cabbage Island Clambakes | Boothbay Harbor, ME
Cabbage Island Clambakes offers a one-of-a-kind dining experience. This island is more than an excellent place for lobster. It is an experience in itself! Your trip begins in Boothbay Harbor where you’ll hop aboard the Bennie Alice. The ship then takes visitors on a cruise to a small, private island off the coast of Maine. Once you arrive on the island, you can look forward to a hearty meal of fish chowder, lobster, potatoes and onion, corn on the cob, and the best blueberry cake in Maine.
Stay Near Them All at Grey Havens Inn
After a delicious meal at one of the best lobster shacks in Maine, take an easy drive back to Grey Havens Inn to relax. Our boutique inn is in beautiful Midcoast Maine and is a great alternative to generic hotels. You’ll love the warm hospitality and “Old Maine” feel that our inn is known for.
For waterfront views and privacy, reserve the Sunrise Suite. Here, you can enjoy a glass of wine on your own balcony, and watch the boats sail by on Harmon’s Harbor.
