Located about 20-30 min. outside of Portland, this family-owned seafood joint and lobster pound offers fresh lobster rolls, shrimp, clams, and scallops along with harbor views where you can see the family’s fishing boats bringing in the daily catch. You can enjoy a fresh caught and cooked lobster, or bring a live one home. You’ll have to catch this restaurant during the summer though-they’re open May 2 to Columbus Day. Note: it’s located in the same town as L.L. Bean headquarters, in case you want to go shopping afterward.
