Young's Lobster Pound

This is an excellent fine dining experience. The food, the view, and the price are all fine. Actually, better than fine. We were there towards the end of October, so we just about had the place to ourselves. Us... and lots of lobster! While service is "order at the counter and wait for your number to be called," the staff were very accommodating (helpful, cracking the shells, helping to carry the order).

There is an extensive menu plus the daily specials. We both started with fish chowder, full of flavor and fish. We ordered grilled sea scallops with potato salad and coleslaw ($16.95) and a twin lobster dinner ($15.95). Wow! Big on quality, quantity, and value. There must have been around two dozen scallops, still juicy and grilled to perfection. The potato salad is terrific. And the succulent lobster... I still dream about it. It is cooked to order straight from the tank, served with plenty of napkins because you will need them.

You certainly don't get cheated on the amount of lobster meat in each bowl of stew.

For easy access, your lobster will come pre-sliced.

This is the REAL DEAL.  It doesn't get any fresher.  Right off the boat, into the pot. 1 to 1 1/2 pound lobster, boiled in seawater, corn-on-the-cob or coleslaw, steamers and chowder or stew.

As big as this place is, it is still hard to fathom that they are capable of holding 30,000 lobsters at a time.

The upstairs dining room right after opening.  Within a half hour, most of the room was full of happy customers.
