Thank you for stopping by Our American Travels to see why we loved our Maine Vacation. This post is about the Lobster Shack, which was incredibly delicious.
Are you planning a trip to Maine? Would you like suggestions on what to eat? What lighthouses to see? What not to miss on your vacation? Be sure to see all my Maine reviews?
The Lobster Shack at Two Lights in Cape Elizabeth, Maine has Wicked Good Lobster Rolls and views. Don’t believe me? Check out my video of the amazing food and views.
How did we find out about The Lobster Shack?
I love Food Network and the Travel Channel. When doing research for our trip, I found this video on Man v. Food: Lobster from The Lobster Shack in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. The lobster looked so fresh, and the views looked so beautiful I had to check it out. We were not disappointed!
Why should you try a lobster roll from The Lobster Shack in Cape Elizabeth, Maine?
We ate amazing lobsters and lobster rolls all over Maine. In every place that we tried a lobster roll, the lobster was always fresh with huge chunks of lobster in each bite. I am convinced that lobster rolls are the best way to enjoy lobster. When eating a lobster roll, you have no work, no cracking lobster shells and no mess to clean up. I know you must be asking what makes The Lobster Shack lobster rolls different?
Lobster rolls are served on a soft roll similar to a hot dog bun. Huge chunks of lobster are placed on the roll. Depending on where you get a lobster roll, the lobster is mixed with a subtle amount of mayonnaise or in the case of the lobster rolls from The Lobster Shack, a dollop of mayonnaise (which can easily be removed) is placed on top of the lobster roll. The lobster is so fresh, and the chunks are so big it does not need the mayonnaise. Without the mayonnaise, you enjoy the pure, sweet amazing taste of each piece of lobster.
We also enjoyed fresh Maine fried clams and shrimp and their delicious Maine Wild Blueberry pie at the Lobster Shack. To experience Maine to its fullest, you have to not only eat lobster but save room for the blueberry pie. I was told that Maine blueberries are smaller than regular blueberries but are packed with more flavor. I have to agree the Lobster Shack’s Blueberry Pie was one of the best blueberry pies I have ever had.
How do your order your food?
You will order at the counter at Lobster Shack. Do not let the line in the video scare you away. The line went quickly, and the lobster is worth the wait. You will find a number on your receipt. When your order comes up, you hear a number announced on a loudspeaker. You will clearly understand the number from anywhere inside or outside around the picnic tables.
When we visited, it was a beautiful day. We took turns sitting at our picnic table to hold it while I took each person to the ocean to take pictures. By the time I finished taking everyone’s picture, the food was ready. I can only imagine what wonderful pictures I could have taken if we had eaten a late dinner. I noticed that they were open every day until 8:00 p.m.
Amazing Breathtaking Views from The Lobster Shack in Maine? Seating inside or outside?
The lobster is not the only reason The Lobster Shack is one of my favorite places to eat in Maine. The views of the ocean from The Lobster Shack are one of the prettiest sites you will ever see. You can eat indoors if the weather is bad, but do not even think of it if the weather is nice. You will see there are plenty of picnic tables outside overlooking the incredible views of the ocean. It was the best picnic ever. Be sure to take your camera and take family pictures.
