Five Islands Lobster Co

Reviewed By PNMLAW - Cherry Hill, New Jersey

Seafood shack on the dock surrounded by rocks for the kids to climb on, and fishermen coming and going. Really is an idyllic setting. Food is outstanding. Giant lobster roll. Great sandwiches--the Jenny Special is amazing. Fantastic and swift service. This August was our fourth year returning to the area and we never miss Five Islands.

We stopped here after a visit to Boothbay Harbor and the Maine Aquarium. It is a bit out of the way, but well worth the drive. We were able to sit out on a deck overlooking the adjacent cove on a lovely summer day, which...MoreDear Very Nice, Glad to hear that lunch was very good!! The driveway is owned by the town however.

Spinney's Oceanfront Restaurant

Reviewed By NanaHen70 - Tallahassee

The drive out to Spinney's is lovely and when you arrive the view is breathtaking. We had the lobster which was cooked perfectly. Leave room for fresh baked pie. The chef uses creme cinnamon in his blueberry pie which was amazing. The ladies at the table next to us said they come to Spinney's often when they visit every season and are never disappointed. We love local favorites.

Thanks to reviews by other TripAdvisor members, I easily selected Winnegance Restaurant & Bakery as my place for lunch in Bath, the City of Ships. It was also conveniently located not far from the Maine Maritime Museum where I went earlier in the day.

The Winnegance Restaurant & Bakery takes its name from its locale. Winnegance is an area made up from parts of Bath, West Bath, and Phippsburg.

It was a cozy café-style place with tables and chairs of different heights. Two of the tables were hand-painted by an employee. One tabletop had an octopus; the other had a lobster. I sat at the lobster table in the front window that overlooked a cove on Winnegance Creek at its confluence with the Kennebec River. Winnegance Lake is on the other side of Route 209. The view was scenic even in winter.

The lunch menu had a few hot meals, soup, and some sandwiches.

After some discussion with the waitress, I ultimately chose the Lobster Grilled Cheese Sandwich at $14.95 + 8% Maine Meals Tax of $1.20 for a total of $16.15. It came with pickle chips and a bag of potato chips.

It was about a 20-minute wait for my sandwich. It was well worth the wait. The sandwich featured slices of Swiss and American cheeses and about 3 oz. of chopped lobster spread throughout the sandwich on wheat berry bread. The rich nutty flavor of the wheat berry bread tasted great to me with the cheese and the lobster. It was excellent. It was definitely a sandwich I’d eat again.

Service was great. The place was clean.

The bakery section had some tempting goodies.

During my visit, I got a look at the breakfast menu. It had more items than the lunch menu. On the next visit to the Mid-Coast Region, I plan to have breakfast there.

I rate Winnegance Restaurant & Bakery at 5.0. I highly recommend eating here.

Downeast Ice Cream

Reviewed By easyriderNh - nh

We were in BoothBay Harbor over Columbus Day weekend, having dinner at McSeagull's when a lovely couple sat down at the bar next to us and said Hello, asked us where we were from. People are always so friendly. We mentioned that we were going to Downeast Ice Cream for our dessert for a delicious hot fudge sundae with the best coffee ice cream after dinner and they said "so sorry, we own the ice cream shoppe and we just ran out of ice cream for the season, closed a few minutes ago". We didn't get our sweet treat that night, but it was such a pleasure to meet the lovely couple that own the shoppe and are responsible for the great friendly staff who work there, the wonderful atmosphere when you walk through the open door and the BEST homemade hot fudge sauce made by the very sweet lady who owns the shoppe.
We will look forward to our first sundae in the 2018 season and hopefully see the owners there next summer. Happy Winter season off.....you both deserve a break.

Georgetown Country Store

We serve great breakfasts, lunches and suppers to dine in at lunch counter or small dining porch gallery, or take out. Specialties are lobster rolls, seafood platters, homemade fries and onion rings and pizza. We have 2 picnic tables on our lawn. Convenience store sells wine and beer to take away, plus all basics. We have a small gallery showing local arts and crafts, plus Maine books, calendars and cards.

Reviewed By BobHLeverett - Leverett, MA

We were told that we could get a lobster in this general store. Skeptical, we called and indeed we were told (in cryptic Maine style) that this was the case. So, six of us visited. When you enter you do not immediately see the restaurant part. But, if you persist you will see a counter where there is counter seating and then a small porch that has a few small tables. We ordered lobsters. These were soft shell (which did not expect, but were fine) and prices at something like $6.75 per pound. They came with french fries. The fries were really quite good. The lobsters were very good too (once you accepted that a soft shell lobster has less meat in that new too-big shell that it might appear just looking at the shell). All in all a reasonable experience. Apparently this is a spot frequented by locals for all manner of things, including local conversation. In Georgetown, most locals know other locals and all about them.

We vacation at Popham beach every year, and we love Percy's! The family that owns and runs the place are gracious, kind, hard-working folks. They grill up some tasty food, and there're many fun flavors of ice cream available. They sell all kinds of stuff--clothes, fishing tackle and bait, beer, etc.
