My group, a party of five, came in about ten minutes before closing. We asked if they'd serve us. We were prepared to be turned away. Instead, they invited us in. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was lively, with many groups and children. Because we didn't want to keep the staff late we ordered only entrees. At our server's recommendation I had the lobster pie, which was delicious. Everyone else in our group enjoyed their meals too. I wish our stay in the area had been long enough for us to return.

Lazy lobster and scallops dinners were excellent.Topped off by raspberry pie--yummy. Get there early---they open at 4PM or expect to wait.

We happened upon the restaurant while staying in Ellsworth. When we realized that waiting for a table on Saturday night meant relaxing on Adirondack chairs near the river, we were thrilled. We loved our lobster dinner and returned the next night for a fish dinner.
A lovely place to dine.

On a recommendation from the manager of the hotel we tried this restaurant. The fish was fresh and well prepared. My husband has the swordfish and I had the crusted salmon which came with wild blueberry chutney. Delicious! The salad came with a cranberry Dijon dressing which was excellent (now I am hunting for the recipe!)

We were in Maine a week and went to the Union River Lobster Pot three times. We were rarely disappointed. The food and service were excellent with generous portions. If you love lobster they serve it in a variety of ways. My favorite was a whole lobster in a salad but many in our party loved the lazy man's lobster soaked in butter and with no effort to dig out meat. A huge menu also so the non sea food lovers will be happy
