About Us

At The Lobster Pound, our philosophy is simple: serve great food and treat guests like family.

That philosophy was born in 1926, when The Lobster Pound served its first customers in the exact same spot where it stands today. From day one, we’ve been committed to providing a high quality meal and outstanding service to every guest who walks through our doors.

What began as an outdoor lobster cooker has grown into a 260 seat iconic establishment. The Lobster Pound has become a staple in the Lincolnville community and a second home to families from both here and far away. As we head into our 92nd season the tradition continues for this to be a place where you can enjoy an authentic Maine dinner while catching up with old friends, meeting new ones, and celebrating family milestones.

The Lobster Pound is a dining tradition that has been family orientated for generations, a place where you can take a moment, connect through real conversations and enjoy an excellent meal with the important people in your life. We’re the family you want to visit again and again.
