Fodor's Expert Review Young's Lobster Pound

$$$ Belfast Seafood Fodor's Choice

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 numerous 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. Surf-and-turf dinners and hot dogs are popular, too. It's BYOB. Order your dinner at the counter, then find a table inside or on the deck. Don't leave your outdoor table unattended—seagulls love lobster.
