Lobster Bakes

A Summer Tradition Served Best With a Side of Adventure

In Maine, lobster bakes are a favorite summer tradition enjoyed as much for communal fun as they are for the fresh-caught local lobster. After all, the taste of the ocean is best savored under the sun while enjoying an ocean breeze and the company of old or new friends.

Visitors will become accustomed to lobster bakes as part of their coastal Maine adventures. Usually prepared for large groups of people, lobster bakes are a regular custom as part of a day sail, following a whitewater rafting adventure or a whale watch, or as the cornerstone of a summer holiday celebration.

Lobster bakes are served outside, traditionally prepared in a hole dug in the sand on a Maine beach where a fire is topped with stones, seaweed, and a cornucopia of food, including lobsters, clams, mussels, and various vegetables, such as onions, potatoes and corn on the cob. Lobster bakes are cooked for a couple of hours before being served, more often than not on paper plates. However, lobster bakes can easily achieve an air of authenticity without requiring a sandy hole, and many bakes are prepared on an outdoor fire or grill using a large steamer pot. Visitors can look to the many local businesses that specialize in providing lobster bakes expertly prepared and served – they are happy to accommodate.
