WOW! This place is AMAZING. We tried to get in on a Sunday night and there wasn't anythinf available, so we made it a point to get there today (Monday), right at opening. Anthony provided GREAT service and you could tell the servers worked together as a team. We both had the Lobster, but upgraded to the shore meal. Seriously, worth e ... read more

We dine at Union River Lobster Pot regularly and have rarely been disappointed... Any disappointment being the wait for a table, but when the weather is nice, sitting outside by the river and listening to the water rush by takes the boredom out of the wait. I've tried a bit of everything on the menu and have found it all tasty and qu ... read more

First lobster I have ever had! It was good, maybe a little "chewy." The blueberry pie was excellent.

When in Maine you must stop for lobster! We were staying nearby and decided to try it. It was a great summer venue- picnic tables outside along the river(inside seating as well). Our waiter, Justin, was great-friendly, helpful, attentive. The lobster rolls were delicious. I can't decide which I liked best- the traditional cold one wi ... read more

We vacationed in the bar harbor area last week. We ate at many restaurants and this one was by far our favorite! Best lobster roll I had and the bacon wrapped scallops were awesome! Great service too. Highly recommend!

This place is a MUST. They are extremely organized. You check in and use your cell to receive a text when your table is available. While you wait you visit the tiki bar, where they have great drinks to choose from. Love the Lobster Pot Beer which is a unique flavor that is made just for the restaurant. We ordered the fried cheese c ... read more

Great find!
We found this place the first night we were in the area. They set the bar high! We shared a lobster and had fun learning how to crack the lobster for the meat. The lobster was good. The sides good as well. Blueberry pie to...go- well that was a treat later! Would highly recommend this restaurant.More ... read more

We got there at opening time. The service was fast, staff friendly and the outdoor seat was pleasant. Recommend you sit down by the water. It's a tidal river so if you time it right, you can see if come in or out quickly during your meal.
Joshua Reap via - Sep 7, 2020
My new favorite place for lobster! Of course COVID-19 changed everything over the last several months so I didn't know what to expect. The ordering was seamless...we looked the menu up online and everyone knew what they wanted. We found a picnic table out on the lawn overlooking the beautiful Union River. We placed our order and ... read more
