Whether you come by boat or arrive by car, Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier is one of the most fun destinations for an evening meal in southern Maine. The menu is simple with the star event being the ‘sea bug’ or lobster, of course, but other delicacies from the sea are offered along with a sprinkling of nice sides and a few non-seafood dishes.
This is a very popular, casual and colorful BYOB restaurant located right on the creek in Kittery Point. It closes the day after Labor Day so my daughter and family thought it’d be a great place to celebrate the holiday with one last crustacean indulgence, especially since it was featured in Bon Appétit in July. We arrived early under threat of impending rain but the deck was already full of happy diners and noisy merrymakers who seemed settled in for awhile.
We shared tasty appetizers and drinks that my son-in-law provided until our meal was served. With the attentive servers, mostly young college kids, it didn’t take long at all. Bibs tied on, napkins in place, these finger-licking goodies disappeared fast.
On Mother’s Day 2015, Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier will throw open the gates and again welcome diners to a lobster feast on the river as they have done since 1948. If you’re ever in this neck of the woods and have a hankering for good seafood and a lively atmosphere, hop on over to Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier in Kittery Point, Maine.
