Young's Lobster Pound

Young's Lobster Pound Review

The corrugated-steel building looks more like a fish cannery than a restaurant, but it's one of the best places for an authentic Maine lobster dinner. It sits right on the water's edge, across the harbor from downtown Belfast. When you first walk in, you'll see tanks and tanks of live lobsters of varying size. The traditional meal here is the "shore dinner," consisting of clam chowder or lobster stew, steamed clams or mussels, a 1½-pound boiled lobster, corn on the cob, and chips. Order your dinner at the counter, then find a table inside or on the deck. Surf-and-turf dinners and hot dogs are popular, too. It's BYOB. Don't leave your outdoor table unattended—seagulls love lobster.
