We had heard about Claws Mac n cheese, so we went early for lunch. You will not need any dinner the serving is so huge. Husband had the lobster Mac n cheese and I tried the Crab Mac n cheese. It came with 2 sides. The corn on cob was stone cold. The clam chowder was good. While we were eating, the manager was walking down the isle asking patrons how they liked their lunch. I quietly told him that my corn was cold/mushy. He offered to bring some more. I told him, "No, thank you as I can't possibly even finish this massive amount of delicious Mac n cheese". About 3 minutes later he came back and gave me a serving of "his grandmas's or aunt's or mom's" potato salad (can't remember which). This is service. Delicious, too. We are so happy that we stopped here on our New England Road Trip.

We've been all over Maine and this is the best Lobster roll place bar none. Others are good but nothing beats their Lobster rolls, fries, and onion rings.

Someone we met on our trip recommended this place for lobster rolls. Boy, am I glad we followed their advice. They were scrumptious. Loaded with pure lobster. Parking is tough to find but worth the trouble. Nothing fancy but great lobster.

Great food, fun atmosphere, nothing fancy. You have to wait a bit when it’s busy but it’s busy for a reason.....great food.

We were heading to our next destination while on vacation in Maine, and it was dinnertime. We happened to drive past Claws, so we decided to stop. My husband and I split a whole lobster with sides, and it was more than enough food to fill us both up, and it was so good! They only have outside seating, and it was a little colder, but there were several heaters blowing warm air down, so that was nice. They had already put plastic up to keep out the cooler air, so the views were not as nice, but I have to believe in the warmer seasons it would be fantastic. The staff was great, and our overall experience there was a really good one.
