    The Weathervane: Not Leaving Hungry!

    by painterdave Written Feb 14, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hungry?

    When arriving in Belfast this was the first place I tried for lobster. I was not disappointed. They serve you a lot of food while having fun. The Weathervane was started years ago and has been a well known mom and pop restaurant that has blossomed into many restaurants owned by the family.
    Regardless of the multiple restaurants I found the food to be better than expected.
    Atmosphere, kind of sea faring--yoh ho ho.
    I ate there more than once.
    See their website for menu,prices and photos.

    Favorite Dish: They specialize in seafood, but lobster was my pick.
    I shied away from ravioli... as I think it could have been made off premises for all their restaurants.
    They have a good children's menu that any finicky child would like.

    The Three Tides: Fancy Diggings!

    by painterdave Written Feb 14, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have eaten here twice, liked the ambience, the staff and mainly the food. They have some great appetizers besides the seafood fare that is the standard for coastal Maine. The Tides has two eating areas, one lower kind of for groups, and one upper on a deck.
    While the view isn't as good as the Weathervane around the corner, the food was a touch above.
    If you are looking for a romantic situation, this is the one you are looking for.
    Sorry no photos, but their website has a view.
    Worth a consideration, if you like food preparation upscale. It is not a mom and pop kind of place but has an owner interested in slow food.

    Favorite Dish: Their tapas:
    Garlic pita chips and salsa
    $3.50
    Andijeto
    $4.00
    Hummus Plate
    $6.50
    Small dish of mixed olives
    $2.50
    Fresh Mozzarella, tomato, and basil salad
    $8.50
    Baked mozzarella sticks
    $4.95
    Pear, goat cheese and greens
    $7.00
    Sandwich or Paninni
    $8.50
    Swedish meatballs
    $7.50
    Veggie Quesadilla
    $8.50
    Maine crabmeat quesadilla
    $9.95
    Chicken Quesadilla
    $10.50
    Stuffed mushroom caps with crabmeat
    $6.50
    Pemaquid Oysters
    $12.00/6 22.00/12

    White Cottage Snack Shack: Seafood and Fries

    by painterdave Written Feb 13, 2011
    Oh so good!
    2 more images

    South of Belfast is the small village of Lincolnville and when you drive past the big white restaurant called Lincolnville Lobster Pound look to the left and there is a spit of land where a small cottage sits. Here is a cheaper seafood place where you can order and sit outdoors at picnic tables.
    The view is good and I enjoyed eating here.

    Favorite Dish: I had friend clams and fries. It was good.
    A cute diversion to the indoor experience of most seafood places.

    Young's Lobster Shore Pound Wharf: Get Lobsters Here

    by painterdave Written Feb 13, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Crack!

    This is my favorite place to get lobster in Belfast. I tried three different restaurants, and this place came out tops, not only because of the fresh lobster direct from their own holding tank, but from the view.
    When you arrive at Youngs you walk through a barn kind of structure where they have different pools holding different sized lobsters. After you order by size, you go out on the wharf and sit at picnic tables and enjoy a wonderful view across to Belfast. Everyone there is in a party mode and getting to know all the folks who came to have a lobster is a lot of fun. The chef will call your name and you come and get your food and return to the table.
    The lobsters here are really fresh and priced as reasonable as any one in the area.
    You can bring your own bottle of wine or beer, and other picnic items. They don't hassle you on this sort of thing.

    Favorite Dish: Lobster, of course. 2 pound size.

    Young's Lobster Pound: Eat at a lobster pound

    by Dabs Updated Sep 30, 2007

    Lobster #4

    Maine is famous for it's lobster pounds, I'm not sure if they are all like this one but I suspect they are similar. This is absolutely no frills dining, you park in the dirt lot, enter what can best be described as a hangar, look around at rows and rows of sea green containers crawling with live lobsters and other shellfish. You order at the counter, they give you a number, they go pick out your lunch from the large tanks of lobsters and in 10 minutes or so lunch is served.

    There's an outside upper deck where you can eat or picnic tables on the water looking across at Belfast, you can bring your own beverages and lobster cracking tools or the server can whack your lobster with a knife several times to crack it.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered, what else, lobster, I believe it was 1 1/4 lbs. for $17.99 and included a side of butter and chips. Robert ordered a seafood sampler including snow crab legs, peel and eat shrimp and crab salad. My meal was very good, Robert's was OK, I think if you are going to go to a lobster pound that you should stick to what they are known for, lobsters. I saw them bring Robert's crab legs out and they appeared to be frozen, you know that the lobster is fresh.
