About Us

We are an authentic Maine lobster shack located directly across from a working lobster wharf on the beautiful island of Spruce Head. You can watch the lobstermen steer their boats into the wharf, bringing with them the day's catch. The beautiful view of the bay can only be rivaled by our super fresh lobster, lobster rolls and crabmeat rolls. Not a fan of seafood? We have plenty of land lover items, including Dore's corn chowder, grilled cheese, and juicy burgers!

The Wharf

Located directly across from McLoons Lobster Shack, McLoons Wharf is our parent company's wholesale lobster buying station. Our wharf manager buys lobsters from Spruce Head Island lobstermen, who bring their daily catch directly to our wharf. The lobsters are held in crates until they are brought down to our wholesale plant in Portland. There, we store the lobsters in tanks, where they are either sold or cooked and processed to make lobster meat. We sell our lobster, along with many other seafood and fish products, all over the country.

The second half of our company is located in Highlands, New Jersey. We deliver seafood products five times a week, which they sell wholesale to many area restaurants and retail through their popular seafood market, Lusty Lobster (visit www.bestlobster.com). We also supply several large restaurant groups and other wholesalers outside of Maine and New Jersey, including New York City, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and Florida.

Our steamed lobster dinners and lobster rolls are all made with lobsters from our wharf, assuring that you are getting a fresh product, directly from the source. The lobster shack even has its own live lobster crate, right in the bay across from the picnic tables. For every lobster dinner order, we hoist up the crate using a pulley system, and you can hand select your own lobster!
