Markey's Lobster Pool

420 NH-286, Seabrook, NH - (603) 474-2851

"In the far northeastern corner of Massachusetts, around Ipswich and Essex, you'll find the best fried clams in America. Head about 18 miles up the coast, to Maine, and you'll begin to find America's finest lobsters. So doesn't it seem reasonable that those short 18 ..."   [Read More]

Markey's beautiful lobster roll!

Fried seafood at Markey's is utterly grease-free.  The clams are excellent but the scallops are superlative.

Not as buttery rich as other lobster bisques we have sampled, Markey's version still comes highly recommended for the copious amount of fresh lobster meat contained within.

Markey's lobster roll is filled with large chunks of claw meat and a judicious amount of mayo.

Steamers are local.  You can tell by the chipped edges and varying sizes.  They also need a more thorough rinsing in the broth than their farmed cousins.  We only wish the butter was really butter (we don't know for certain that it isn't the real stuff but to our tongues there was no butter flavor whatsoever).

Signs using lobsters and other sea creature images are found all over the restaurant.

The view from the outside deck adds to the fun.  Lucky Markey's faces in this direction (that's Massachusetts).  The other way?  A nuclear power plant.

Markey's Lobster Pool is right on New Hampshire's border with Massachusetts, about a half-mile from the Atlantic Ocean.

Seabrook offers a seafood choice: across the street is Brown's Lobster Pound.  You might assume they are bitter rivals but they are actually said to be supportive of each other.
