Make a Pilgrimage to a Tourist Mecca: Sure, it’s so popular that the weekend crowds practically double the population of this artsy seaside village. The restaurants have extensive indoor and sundeck seating where guests can enjoy both the beauty of the harbor and the ocean beyond. For fifty years Barnacle Billy's restaurant has been known for its luxury lobster, steamed clams, large lusty drinks, barbecued chicken, homemade clam chowder, and of course, the lobster roll and lobster stew.

The beer, wine and theme dinners that we host during the winter months have become quite popular. One of our most popular theme dinners is our beach party. Last year it was 10 below 0 and we had people turn up in their shorts and sunglasses. A great time was had by all. The chef and distributors work closely to create a perfect blend of food and spirit at our beer and wine dinners. Seating is limited to 50 so the gathering will be intimate and informative. For a wonderful evening join us this winter for our wine and beer dinner series:

Clam Shack
Kennebunkport, ME
Latest Review
This is strictly a shack.The unassuming Clam Shack is the Pa Kettle of seafood joints. Local lore establishes the Clam Shack's roots in 1968, when the little shanty was rented on a handshake. Current owner, Steve Kingston, bought the Shack and the adjoining Clam Shack Seafoods in 2000. In the decade since, Steve has kept a brisk trade going by following tradition and keeping the precariously balanced buildings shipshape. Many claim that the Lobster roll(fresh picked meat of a 1 pound lobster) & the clams at the Clam Shack are the very best."This place does the best fried clams on the entire Maine coast and is more than worth a detour from anywhere!"-Brooke Dojny, James Beard Award-winning food writer"

Waterman's Beach Lobster
South Thomaston, ME
Latest Review
Remember, open five days a week, Wednesday - Sunday from 11 am to 7 pm from mid June to September. As the James Beard Award proclaimed, "This restaurant is the quintessential Maine experience." Plan your vacation around Waterman's, you'll be extremely happy that you did! Between a meadow and a rocky beach sits Waterman’s humble shack, with two dozen picnic tables scattered around a lawn and a tented deck. The day’s haul is steamed over salt water, which gives the meat a briny tang while keeping it firm. Home made pies from family recipes are baked every day. Round Top ice cream is a real treat. BYOB is the alcohol option.

This is the Maine Coast at it's best, and we Shaw's is proud of it. You are on one of the most picturesque Maine "working" fishing harbors of which New Harbor is one of the few still remaining.The Kevin Costner/Paul Newman film Message in a Bottle was shot in this salty sea dog’s town.They filmed parts of the movie at Shaw's! Watch fisherman unload their daily catch of lobster at the dock, keeping them supplied with the freshest Maine has to offer.If you cant make up your mind as to what to eat; Be sure to get a lobster roll—Shaw’s served over 10,000 of them last year. Sit and relax on the wharf or second floor deck to view one of the most picturesque working fishing harbors still left. Visit the raw bar serving up Pemaquid Oysters, considered to be among the best!! Enjoy a cocktail, glass of wine, or beer from a substantial offering.
