REVIEWS OF Erica's Seafood IN Maine

Nathan Greene

A long wait on a busy Mother's Day weekend but the food was fresh and delicious.

George Umberhind

Great food at good prices. Nice view of the ocean. When you need your seafood fix.

Elain Alcorn

Found this secret on Travelocity, with 5 * and it is worth way more!! Go get your lobster NOW!

James Paterson

The best fish chowder in Maine. Great fried clams for lunch and then we took chowder home for dinner. The perfect day!

Julie lightworker

Best lobster roll in the area, very little Mayo, and there is so much lobster it falls out of the bun. This is a take out with picnic tables, bring your own beer or wine. You know it is good if the locals eat there.

Donald Graves

Classic shorefront sea food. Great views AND prices. Long time owners add to the wonderful experience of being at Erica's.

Diane Murphy

Best seafood around the ocean views are breath taking not to mention pick your lobster from the wharfs lob tank they cook. it up for ya the service is wonderful and friendly

Lisa Love

Always great. Try timing your visit for off-peak mealtimes. Love their gluten-free options.

Ben Daniels

Love it. Always make a trip there when we visit Harpswell.

Erica & Matt Shipman

Best lobster roll in Maine!

David Oltmanns

Third year in a row and three times this week. I guess you could say I like lobster. Tommy has this way of making you feel welcomed and special and the staff at the counter do to. I usually get the lobster roll or boiled lobster. Yesterday was the hard versus soft shell challenge, both lobsters were great, but I think I'll stay with soft shell lobster.

Thomas Joyce

The best lobster roll in Maine, bar none!

James Whithed

Delicious and inexpensive for this area.

Veronika Klubnika

Cash only! Seafood chowder is out of this world experience! It is great every time. Family business. Lovely views and location is cool even on the hottest days. I would definitely recommend

Scott Zeafla

Loved. Went back the next day and would have kept going back if I didn't live in western NY. Slaw is the best I've ever had. Seafood is as fresh as it can get

Gen BigMac

Good food at a reasonable price. Very scenic view

Daniel Flores

I bought lobster here to take home to pa and the man took his time to pack them up rite and went down to the water and got sea weed to pack them up in. Wish I would've met him earlier I fish and he was filled with info on strippers. What I am saying is very good service and friendly people. Places like this makes harpswell Maine what it is. A beautiful town with hard working lobster fishermen and women, a place you wish everywhere can be like.

Michael Hoch

Great lobster roll

Bob Jones

Cool place to get a lobster roll. Sometimes it is very busy and you may have to wait a while to get your order.

Victoria Rosales

My boyfriend and I discovered Erica's Seafood three years ago on a road trip up the east coast. We make it a point to visit every year we come up to New England. Tom never disappoints and the Lobster is the BEST... always sweet, perfectly steamed and worth every mile. EDIT: he is now my ex boyfriend and promoted to fiancé when he proposed on the dock at Erica’s Seafood... it truly is a special place.

Elana Areostatico Crooker

Awesome Lobster Roll! Jammed packed with meat! With little mayo, just how I like it!

Inez Dudley

Great food good prices lobster rolls were stuffed

ER Zewski

Pet friendly, casual outdoor dining on the waterfront. No frills, BYOB but amazingly reasonable price for steamed lobsters. We had 2 lobsters, each over 1.75 pounds for only $27. Yes, you do pay a couple of extra bucks for the setup (butter, crackers, bibs etc) and to have them steamed but the price is well worth not having to do the cleanup afterwards. It's definitely worth the drive!


Awesome lobster, and friendly service.

Francesca Greenwood

Scallop roll is so tasty here!!! Could do with more tables for busy periods.

Bobby West

Best seafood and view around..great people there also..

Aaron Leong

Good lobsters and good food. Not the best rolls, but you come here for the fresh lobsters and the view. It gets crowded quickly if you happen to come during busy hours (mealtime or holidays), though.

Giles Landry

Always get great service and truly 5 he best prices.

Eric Ball

Not bad at all. Several choices on the menu. Wife got lobster on a bed of lettuce and I got the haddock basket with onion rings. Both were good, but the lobster was less plentiful and smaller chunks than Shannon's in Boothbay Harbor, but $7 cheaper. The haddock was perfectly fried. The onion rings were good but thinner than we prefer. There is a take out shack as well as a restaurant. If in the area, we would gladly return.

Jacqueline A

Don't go here unless you want to eat a pile of greasy food and meet up with a couple of VERY UNFRIENDLY employees!! This used to be our favorite place to go. I'm not sure what happened but the place has sadly went down hill. We would drive 45 minutes just to go here.

Kim Richley

Great fried clams. The Crabster roll is the perfect option when you can't decide on Crab or Lobster

Maggie Bouthot

Long lines because of the boat races, but worth the time!

Lisa Dugas

Fast service with amazing seafood!

Jon Rakin

Yesterday we visited Erica’s Seafood on a very foggy Monday afternoon. The fog kept the temperatures cool as the Mainland was close to 90 degrees. Erica’s is everything you expect in a traditional Maine Lobster Shack. Nothing fancy, only take-out, seats are on picnic tables by the parking lot, overlooking the working dock. When its not fogged in, their are great views of South Harpswell and Casco Bay. We enjoyed the crab roll and lobster roll with sides. The lobster roll was one of the best tasting I ever had in Maine. The prices are fair but this is a no frills dining experience. Bathrooms are port o potties around back. Well behaved dogs are Welcome ! Highly recommend for the true Maine experience!

Lisa Cloutier

Great food

Mj B

Tommy is an Awesome Mainer...get your Lobster from him at the dock While he boils it right there everything else is ordered up at the stand from Erica and Andrea. For the fun of it tell him Captains Mike and Alyce sent you. I will bet you he remembers has he shakes more water out of the lobster before.He is an awesome people person he'll remember you as he explains lobstering while you Pat Brandy the dock mascot Why go to a restaurant . Sit right by the dock and watch the lobsters come in that's real DownEast. They have a soda machine and you can bring your own beverage especially if it's Shipyard!

Jen Ryan

The food and people at Erica's are amazing. It is NOT to be missed

jamie.jen .libby

Great food.

Elaine Smith

I had a great meal there. The fresh lobster was delicious - and the price was soooo good. The clam chowder was the BEST I've ever had - so much clam in it, I actually had to look for the potato chunks in the soup. It was great value for me. (However, I am not a fan of fried food so I didn't really care for the fried plates they had.)

April Burgess

This is definitely a must-try food is great customer service is great and timing was impeccable

Sprint Sprint

Anna Murphy

Have been going here for years.

Daniel S. Foster

Shoestring fries, good slaw and excellent lobster roll, lightly mayoed, light seasoning. Seafood cake was also very good.

Mardrey Swenson

Good food choices and friendly service

Robert Jones

WOW!!!,...If you want the best seafood chowdah, in Maine, come and explore the Harpswell coast line, for a culinary delight. I always buy a quart, at a time. Leftovers are better, even at home.....Rush to get there, she will be closing, for the season soon.....

Brenda Hebert


Misty Choo

Wonderful selection of seafood offerings! Lobster rolls are delicious, but didn't fill us up so we ordered fried scallops and fried Haddock which did the trick. It's bring your own drinks or be prepared to get a soda from the vending machine. Great views of the bay!

linda h

So fresh and soooo good. Hand cut fries were delicious. Clam chowder had good flavor and lots of clams. Very good.

Judy Kutt

Worth the drive. Pick your own lobster out of a large tank. Low prices delicious fresh food. Eat in or take out. Owners are friendly and enjoy talking to the kids about lobstering. They have tables inside the lobster shed when it rains. Tables outside so you can enjoy the view.


Nice ambience . Fresh food and good food at a great price . Over great experience.

Rachel MacDuffie

The best lobster roll I’ve ever had! Absolutely delicious!

Carmella Schultes

Best chowder I've ever had.

Brian R.

Great prices, great food. Very clam filled clam chowder!

Brian Jones

Always top notch. Best fresh lobsters you can buy and cooked right after you pick the ones you want. Seafood chowder is top notch and fish and chips are a must. Love this place!!

Tom Joyce

Love going here. Great location, best lobster rolls and crabsters.

Christopher RockWiley

Authentic seafood

Rick Yabor

Excellent food


Great fresh seafood at a great price.

Gosh Darn

Very hood clams and lobster

Warren Treadwell

A great value and a nice family run business!tell Toby hello

Dorothy Sheehan

Great food. Worth the drive. You eat outside right on the water so as long as the weather is good it's a wonderful relaxing time. Nothing better then the smell of ocean air.

Maria Polyanskaya

Delicious fresh food. Seafood Chowder was outstanding!

Kathy Keinath

WOW. Great seafood. Fresh. Best lobster roll. Staff very friendly. Live eating outside. BYOA allowed.

Kyle Sennett

As fresh as seafood can get. Delicious. Right on the water, you can see the fishermen bringing their catch in. A little pricey, but not bad, and absolutely worth every penny. No beverages, so bring a water. I loved every bite, I will definitely eat there again.

Charlotte Berry

Always delicious

Elie Dagher

Amazing food, had a few lobster rolls during the week and this was the best! Tried a few other menu items and everything was very good!

Jim Merritt

Great food outside on the coast great views

Catherine Gibson

Awesome crabster rolls, fried seafood and more in open air. Long lovely drive to get there but always worth it.

Dan Potash

We were a little apprehensive of the Google reviewer's very high rating for this place, but it is well deserved. Nice woman took our order and the seafood chowder and the lobster roll were both exceptionally good. But you better enjoy lots of seafood, milk and butter for the chowder.

Jeff Rosenkranz

Excellent food and very nice owners! Lobster and chowder were exceptional

Jim Maggard

Perfection. Crabster roll done dockside. No fluff, no frills, just excellence.

Dr. Don Finn

A great and reasonably priced spot. Lobster fresh off the boat and any questions you have about lobstering are answered by the owner.

William Russell

Crabster was awesome. Always great food

Kellie French

Amazing! Picked out our own lobsters @ $7.5 per lb, ordered some sides and feasted. Beautiful setting right on a point with water all around.

Max Effort

Terrific! We had the cheese burgers and a bowl of seafood chowder. Will back tomorrow for lobster.

Chad Rutledge

Come early and allow plenty of time to enjoy the views

Morton Krantz

Priced good excellent food.

Raymond Archacki

The clammiest Clam Chowder we ever had loaded with the freshest whole clams and not just bits and pieces like many other chowders. Fried whole clam dinner was fabulous as well. Highly recommend.


Erica's serves the best lobster roll in New England.

Charles Smith

Love coming here in the summer. Best little seafood "shack" around.

Joe Kim

I give credit to the locals of Portland for this gem! During the season, go and grab your own lobster in the tank, name it, and savor every crunch of the shell and enjoy the luscious meat. The other items serve well for lunchtime the next day. Remember to bring cash only!

Andrew Woodring

If you are in the area and enjoy seafood definitely worth stopping by. They offer a wide variety of very good items in a pleasant setting by the water. The Crabster Roll (lobster & crab meat mix) was very popular with friends who were visiting. Open hours are 11am - 7pm daily from Mother's Day Weekend thru Columbus Day. They are also cash only so bring some real money because I don't think there's an ATM on-site. During peak season it can be pretty busy so plan accordingly. Staff are also friendly and helpful with questions about the menu. All in all a nice place to enjoy some good food by the water.

chris farthing

Excellent seafood chowder. Haddock basket was well worth the $12 price. Can't beat the location

Pat Myrick

It was awesome. The food was fantastic and the people very friendly. The view was so calming and relaxing. Will go back.!!!

Joe Ward

Best lobster rolls! Popular with locals as well as tourists

Patty Ames

The best !

patricia morin

We love this place food is awesome. Dog friendly fish dinner is the best.we come almost evey week. If your looking for great food come here you will be satisfied.

J Rock

Wife loved it. Quaint place on the shore. I'm not a lobster or crab eater so I can't judge. Burger was great though. I couldn't get the lobster roll down. Ha

Richard Judkins

Great food

Gladys Schreiner

Moved from Maine to Georgia & up here for a short visit. Made a special trip from Portland to see Harpswell friends and to come here for my lobster fix! Always a favorite, Tommy & Erica run a great place. Fresh seafood, no frozen stuff here. The oysters today were tiny flavor bombs, the breading light & crunchy, the haddock spot on, lobster flavorful. Til next time!

Philip Maloney Jr.

The food is awesome and you get a lot for your money. Also the views are great of the coast of Maine.

Daniel Staples Sr.

Awesome seafood

William Smith

Great haddock sandwich. Reasonable prices.

Ron Williams

Great seafood snack shack and lobster pound right on the Maine coast!

Christopher Gardner

Best Lobster Roll in Maine. Tommy has a great little place here

Kim Stone

The best, freshest seafood you can get!

Heath Larson

This was the first lobster shack we visited on our Maine vacation. We absolutely loved the view from the dock. There were lots of other “fans” eating there with us, but all were so friendly and there was just enough seating, which made it all the more enjoyable to eat where the locals eat. An experience I’ll never forget. They even took the time to pull a “jumbo” out of the tank for a photo op for us! The perfect first meal in Maine for us.

Norm Turner

Excellent as usual. Today was cold and windy but Mainer's can take it for excellent seafood. We had lobsters this time. Ill

Clint Dolloff

Love this place!!

Kathryn Coles

Lobster roll was incredible, super fresh not loaded with butter... Fries and onion rings were excellent too. Will be back again!

Harry Shaw


Lori Favreau

The crabster melt is totally worth the drive up from New York!!

Betsy Alley

Excellent food as always!

Drew Kiker

We haven’t had a bad meal here yet! The Crabster roll is my go-to. It’s basically a lobster roll with finely shredded crab mixed in as well. I will ALWAYS order one when I swing by for great, fresh seafood.

Barbara Castrilla

Best night of lobster grubbing during our week stay, friendly people, in and outdoor picnic tables, ...I think it's byob

Shana Simonson

Best soft shell lobster I've ever had. Cooked fresh onsite. Bibs, placemats, crackers, butter, the whole experience at an affordable price!

Alex Leo

Excellent fresh food, service and price.

Scottgfwp Lemieux

Great location, super genuine people and good eats.

Mark Boucher

Love this place! Worth the drive on a hot day. Lobster prices are always competitive. Head down to the building by the pier and grab your lobster to take home, or have it steamed for an extra dollar. Snack shack next door has butter, Cole saw, all the fixings (and some other food options, but the lobster is the"maine" attraction). Cash only.

Steve Harsfald

Open at 11, lobsta roll good quantity of meat, very little mayo, perfect combo on toasted roll.

Eleanor Speed

Excellent lobster roll!

Dawn Burton

At most restaurants I have a couple favorites on the menu, at Erica's everything so delicious it's hard to chose! Combine the food with their awesome location and you will have a wonderful experience every time.

Juan Agon

Simple and to the point. Try the crabster roll. Don't forget to bring your own drinks or coins for the vending machine.

Erik Ross

Overall a great meal. My lobster roll was stuffed with large, juicy chunks of fresh lobster, but one of our party got a quarter of that portion size in hers. The clam chowder was overflowing with clams, potatoes, and onions and the broth was delicious, but every bite came with an equal amount of crunchy sand. Willing to give it another try when I pass through the area next time.

Dan Gauthier

Great seafood stand...busy for a reason and always worth the trip.

Tim Manning

Get the seafood chowder out of this world a bit buttery but who doesn't like butter

Madelyn Cornish

Great food. BYOB!

Tammi Moore

Best place to get seafood at an affordable price. Haddock basket is the absolute best. So fresh.

Susanne Dine

Absolutely delish...thanks Toby my mom loved the lobster. The lobster roll and potato salad was amazing.

Luke Grissom

Awesome lobster roll and fries. Nice location on the water.
