I am not sure what is more famous in Kennebunkport: the Bush Compound at Walker’s Point or The Clam Shack.

Have You Ever Heard Of Famous Clam Shack Kennebunkport, Maine

The Clam Shack in the media.

The Clam Shack has won several awards.  They have also been featured in television shows and magazines including; Gourmet, Coastal Living, Martha Stewart Living, Every Day with Rachel Ray, Travel and Leisure, New York Times, Boston Globe and USA Today.  See videos below from Travel Channel’s Food Wars and Unique Eats.  Their luscious lobster roll was the Maine winner for USA Today’s 50 Great Plates From 50 States.

Maine Lobster Rolls

I ate my weight in lobster rolls all over Maine.  They are my favorite way to eat lobster because you have Maine lobster already cracked and shelled for you.  All you have to do is enjoy the lobster meat.  Lobster Rolls are similar in most Maine Lobster shacks.  We found remarkably fresh lobster on a soft fresh hot dog size bun in most of these places.

What makes the Clam Shack Lobster Rolls a little different?

I can see why the Clam Shack lobster roll has won so many awards and been widely recognized by the media.  The Clam Shack Lobster Rolls are served on a giant round bun that has been toasted.  The bread is loaded with fresh, enormous chunks of lobster.  Most lobster rolls have large fresh chunks of lobster, but each piece of lobster on the Clam Shack lobster rolls were three to four inches.  When eating a Clam Shack Lobster Roll, the “lobster is the star”.  The clam shack makes the lobster stand out with the enormous pieces of sweet, indulgent lobster.

When visiting the Clam Shack…

You cannot miss the Clam Shack for the long line waiting to order a luscious lobster roll and or fried clams.  Trust me, and wait in line for a Clam Shack lobster roll.  It is worth the wait.  Some people may say it is a little expensive, but you are on vacation and eating fresh, delicious lobster is why you are visiting Maine.  

Clam Shack Lobster Roll

You have to experience a Clam Shack Lobster Roll on your vacation.  If you go inside the Clam Shack, you will notice pictures of the Bush family who visited the Clam Shack.  The Bush Compound, Walker’s Point, is just a few miles from the Clam Shack.  I was told they do stop by for a lobster roll and fried clams.  I would stop by for a lobster roll or two or three if I lived that close to this fantastic place.
