We were here on a chilly, rainy evening in October, right before the shack was closing for the season. The owners were so accommodating. Great lobster and mussels at a great price (at least for those of us who live in Southern California). We ate...More

Many thanks for the review. That smell you mentioned is typical of a seafood location. We often marvel at how something that smells so strange always tastes so great. Glad you enjoyed the meals and please come back again.

Many of the Lobster pounds were already closed for the season. So glad we found Eden Rose. Picked my big boy out of the tank and sat at a picnic table (wrapped in a blanket) while they cooked it. The mussels were awesome too

What an amazing Down East food experience! This is nothing fancy, just outstanding steamed lobster, mussels, clams and corn. You dine at picnic tables (Ring lights were provided in the dark) or you can take your order to go. After making a mess of ourselves,...More

We sat at picnic tables outside and feasted on fresh lobster, corn, and delicious mussels. It was so good and at a great price. Wish we could have eaten there more than once but our trip didn't allow enough time. The only drinks available are...More

We stumbled across this place and it was the BEST lobster we had our entire trip! It’s a shack with outdoor seating (picnic tables) only. The meal came with lobster, plenty of mussels, and corn- everything was hot and fresh. Only drinks are a vending...More

I am not the owner but this is a picnic table place. Bring your pet on a leash and I am sure it will be ok.
