Delish overstuffed buttered lobster roll, blueberry pie and Allagash beer! Simple roadside stand with covered tables.

We made a day trip up specifically for The Traveling Lobster. The clam chowder is extremely good. The lobster rolls with butter are stuffed with chunks of fresh lobster meat. Delicious. The drive was well worth it!

You can't get any fresher, unless you pulled the lobster out of the ocean yourself. What's nice, is there is no fishy smell because your aren't on a pier. One of our travel companions had never done the Lobster thing, so they got whole lobster...More

Actually, I just found that you may only be opened till October 20th. We won't be in Bar Harbor till October 22-26. I sure hope the area won't be basically closed down by the time we get there 🤞🙏

They were open last week and seem to have been open for at least a week before we arrived. Such a blessing since many places don't open much before Memorial Day.

Phil & Kelly Corson welcome you to their family owned and operated lobster takeout restaurant. Previously located at our old location 864 State Hwy. 3, we have moved to our new location - a brand new building, more parking and full restrooms. The Corson family has been lobstering for generations. Captain Phil delivers the freshest catch daily. Customers can hand pick their own lobsters. We are most known for our lobster dinners of lobster, mussels, corn, and melted butter along with our "overflowing" lobster roll. We pick our lobster meat fresh daily sometimes twice. We provide the best of local seafood at affordable prices. We have outdoor seating only. Open late May - October. We've added fire pits and tower heaters for the ultimate outdoor eating experience!
