Foursquare Tips

  • Oh Hello Dinner!
  • Don't go for the biggest lobster you see. Ask for a shedder. Soft shell, better meat, more tender.
  • A visit to Acadia would be incomplete without Thurstons. The only way it gets any fresher is if they put it on your plate from the boat. Oh wait, they do. Snag a Lobster Ale as the perfect complement.
  • Beautiful views, friendly staff, good food, & good drinks! A little on the outskirts of the town but well worth the drive! Make sure to grab an Old Soaker Root Beer - a Bar Harbor original & favorite!
  • Favorite lobster pound of our trip to MDI, even though it's a decent drive from Bar Harbor. Thurston's has a 2-floor screened-in dining area right on the water! And even a small bar with local brews.
  • Pick your lobster (hard or soft shell) at the counter and gaze into its eyes.
  • One of the best lobster pounds on the island. I think the food aside from the whole lobsters are better at Beals, but the ambiance here can't be beat.
  • Really good lobster and desserts, defiantly coming back if I'm in the area again!
  • You can get clams and mussels by the pound at Thurstons, as well as lobster and other seafood served in the rough. Watch the lobster boats come in, bringing the fresh catch that Thurstons serves.
  • Best lobster in Maine! Better and cheaper than Beals! With better views!
  • Fantastic place, the lobster is great but the real winners are the lobster dip, lobster BLT and for dessert go with the blueberry pie with blueberry ice cream. (The ice creams the better of the two)
  • The place for lobster in Acadia National Park
  • Lobsterrrrrrr
  • Great place!! We ate Lobster all around the island and the food, service, beer, and views are better here than anywhere else! We will be back
  • Absolutely the best lobster rolls on the island. Well worth the journey.
  • Get here early to dodge the crowds. Don't miss the full bar outside. Lobster and steamer mea FTW. Tip your staff.
  • Get here early to dodge the mosquitos and the crowds.
  • The soft shell lobster is amazing.
  • Lobster stew was the bomb!
  • Lobster, steamers
