Worst lobster roll I have ever had. No wonder no one around us had one. Everyone had the whole lobster. Lobster roll is served on a cold hamburger bun - probably with Hellman's mayonnaise (sweet). It was awful... Nice location for the restaurant though that's why the two stars but terrible parking....

We're natives of the area and have been going there for years; we bring out of town guests (former New Englanders) and everyone raves about the quality, service, friendliness, and how accommodating the staff is. It pains me to reveal this hidden gem but they deserve the accolades!!!

GREAT place! Always hard shell lobsters even in late season!! BYOB and anything else they dont serve. Clean and great staff too that will even serve your K9 friends a bowl of water - yes pet friendly too!!
Mosquitoes come out at night so get there early (that's why they don't stay open late). It's become our vacation tradition.

I find many of the "reviews" absolutely ridiculous - if you want a tuna sandwich, stay home. This establishment is exactly waht the name says, "Lobster Pier", not 5* Michelin restaurant. The specialty is boiled lobster - other "fish" are not going to be caught by the lobstermen who supply the restaurant. The great thing is that you can pack anything they don't sell (salads, wine/beer, desserts other than those sold) bring your own tablecloth, utensils, a roll of paper towels, and just have a great time. People even bring candles (in chimneys to protect them from the breeze). The experience is what you make it - I've never ordered the fried food (again, it's a LOBSTER PIER). There are plenty of other restaurants in the area that do that without the incredible view. Parking is sketchy - but it's on a small, winding road on the very edge of a creek - no huge space for a parking lot. Late night dining OUTSIDE on a pier in Maine is not even a native's idea of "al fresco" - they're not open late for a reason!!

Have been going since the mid 80's. It's better than great. You can also bring your own wine and supplemental food that they do not sell.
Now that I've moved to TN, I try to get back at least every other year.

I have gone to Chauncey for years. A great spot to enjoy the water, boats and a casual meal especially when the weather is nice (prefer to sit outdoors). BYOB. The parking is tough, but I've learned to deal with it. Best to go before the 5 o'clock dinner crowd begins to arrive.

*****Ginny from Colesville, MD, says:
I used to visit every time we visited my favorite uncle in Boston. Well worth the drive. How I long to go back. Lobster in the rough, no frills - with lobster, who needs them? Inexpensive and delicious. Menu's bigger than it was then, just lobster, soda, and chips as I recall. You haven't had lobster until you've eaten it in the rough here.

*****Ian from Andover, MA, says:
One of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. The Lobster was divine and cheap too. Not only did they have great seafood, they had many American type meals that were very very delicious! The view is great, too, which clearly makes it the best seafood restaurant in Maine by far!

*****ga from Wakefield says:
The worst place I ever ate. Went with my brother for lunch. Ramp is steep and not handicap friendly. I left hungry because I could not eat the tuna sandwich. No mayo, dark tuna, hunk of lettuce. Onion rings were frozen, soggy, super greasy. Got bottom of bag of chips. I have never thrown away a meal in my life. Plenty of nice sites elsewhere. Parking is awful. Hard to find. My brother had shrimp...fair. My sister-in-law had greasy fishbites, pollock...would not recommend to anyone and the Phantom Gourmet must have been paid off to put on his show, 1-one pound lobster 14.99 with nothing else...terrible, terrible, terrible...

*****Terry from Hampton, NH, says:
Some day GO here. It's awesome. Bring a table cloth and a centerpiece for your picnic table. Get the cooler ready for this visit, it's BYOB. Anyone that doesn't like seafood that's ok, there's other items on the menu for you guys. It's a beautiful, relaxed very casual setting on the scenic Chauncey river creek. Beautiful tall Maine Pine Trees all around too. Either before or after lunch GO to the Kittery Outlets to shop till you drop where it's close by; how convenient is that!

This is one of the best-kept secrets for an eat-in-the-rough Maine lobster pound. The food and atmosphere are beyond words.

*****AM from Bedford says:
The best eat-in-the-rough lobster pier around! Sweet, delicious lobsters, tasty beans, briny oysters and clams. Bring your own beer or wine and enjoy the food while enjoying the scenery of the beautiful creek. They also let you bring in other food for fellow diners who don't like/can't eat seafood. One of our favorite places!
