Maine Lobster Dinner

Luxurious Eating with a Taste of the Ocean

Any meal that requires the diner to don a bib and equip themselves with crackers and pickers must be taken seriously and Maine lobster dinners are. Sampling a fresh lobster caught from the ocean just hours before it’s served, or choosing one from a restaurant’s lobster pound is a favorite culinary tradition in the region.

Lobster dinners are the stars of area menus, served steaming hot and vibrant red. Generally steamed or boiled, lobster dinners can be served as surf and turf, as part of a "twin lobster” special, or as a shore dinner, complete with bread, vegetables, dipping sauces, and corn on the cob. Diners will delve into the delectable meat of the lobster claws, tails, and legs, while the more adventurous will continue on to the body. (Restaurants will provide step-by-step directions to the newly initiated.)

Whether served overlooking the sea, aboard a ship, or atop crisp linen, a Maine lobster dinner alone, featuring the celebrated crustacean, is worth the trip to Greater Portland. Always sumptuous and decadent, a lobster dinner provides a taste of the state’s rugged terrain and independent spirit as part of the bargain. While arguably best overlooking the sea, so much enjoyment is had from the lobster dinner that visitors will be anxious to prepare their own, either during their stay or delivered to their door after they get home.
