Young's Lobster Pound in Maine
I spent the first 13 years of my life growing up in Maine, and I have to say one of my favorite places to visit is Young’s Lobster Pound. I absolutely love seafood, and you can’t get seafood any fresher than at Young’s.
The place actually sits right next to the ocean, and you eat your meal on the outdoor deck overlooking the cove. Young’s Lobster Pound is a really unique restaurant, and I even saw it featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.
I have an Aunt that actually lives about 10 minutes away from Young’s (which is in Belfast, Maine). When I think about Young’s I have the fondest memories of her taking me there.
You get to choose your live lobster right out of the tank, and have them steam it to your order. They will even chop it open for the wimps who don’t like to get their hands dirty!
It wouldn’t be a Maine Lobster Dinner without steamer clams, corn, and fresh New England clam chowder! It makes my stomach growl just remembering it.
All in all, Young’s Lobster Pound is more than just a restaurant, it’s an entire experience. I would recommend it to any family vacationing in the beautiful state of Maine, and plan on taking my husband there on our first visit next year.
If you are looking to indulge yourself on some of the freshest and tastiest seafood in the state, and also enjoy a beautiful dinner overlooking the Maine coast at the same time, Young’s Lobster Pound is your place!
