Where we've featured it

It’s probably sacrilegious to say that Maine has the best lobster shacks, but since our northern neighbors aren’t really letting us visit at the moment, we’ll put that topic aside for now. In any case, The Lobster Pool in Rockport is a decent substitute. It’s a counter-service spot where live lobsters are cooked to-order and, most importantly, you’ll get to eat right by the ocean. No fancy designer chairs or colorful umbrellas here, by the way. Just you, a crustacean, and it’s former home - you don’t really need much else this summer.
