MAINE

Avoid the Table by the Bait Shack Door

Welcome to Five Islands Lobster Co. We’re located on the wharf at Five Islands, a fishing village on the island of Georgetown, Maine. Five Islands is known as the “prettiest harbor in Maine”, and is truly one of the most picturesque spots anywhere on the coast. Our part of Georgetown sits on Sheepscot Bay as it opens up to the Gulf of Maine. The waters are some of the deepest and coldest on the coast which make for the most sought after lobsters anywhere. The wharf at Five Islands is a working wharf used by our local lobstermen. While you’re here you can watch them baiting their traps, selling their wares, or if you happen to be here in the evening, watch as a huge tuna is brought in. You can take your food to nearby Reid State Park, or sit at one of our picnic tables and take in the sights of the islands, lobster buoys and the open sea, and the sounds of the gulls and lobster boats pulling away from the dock. It’s everything you imagined the unspoiled coast of Maine would be and more. Bring a cooler and some friends, dining is as casual as Maine gets, and food’s great. We strive to provide great food that stands up to the experience of visiting Five Islands. Visit us once, you’ll become a “regular”.
