A few weeks ago while the HH and I were exploring mid coast Maine we stopped off at the Muscongus Bay Lobster Company for lunch. Before we had even started on this journey to find the best lobster shack in New England, I was secretly on the hunt for a lobster shack on a dock, with lobster boats and lobster pots nearby with picnic tables to enjoy your lunch on out in the open air.
Muscongus Bay Lobster was all that and a bag of chips. The only thing missing was a few handsome fishermen unloading the day’s catch on the dock.
This place not only gets five stars for scenery, but according to the HH the boiled lobster, and clams were big and tasty. They even included a mug of broth for dipping the clams in. I had the Caesar salad of course… and well, it tasted like a Caesar salad. 😉
It kind of makes you want to buy a boat and live on the sea. In the summertime at least. Winter, not so much. After having a wood stove in the house to keep me warm in the winter…. I don’t think I’d ever want to live without one again.
Check out the nets! I wonder how many lobster dinners have been boiled in those. Kind of cool if you ask me. It almost makes you want to wear one of those fisherman sweaters and walk around in muck boots, and talk in a heavy accent, doesn’t it?
1 boiled lobster, 1 pound of steamers and an ear of corn. The HH gives the Muscongus Bay Lobster Company in Round Pond, Maine a five out of 5 stars. It’s the perfect place to stop by for a bite to eat, or to bring out of town guests.
Keep calm and explore on,
