Claws

Rockland, Maine is nicknamed the Lobster Capital of the World. Here is where you will find Claws, a fun and casual outdoor lobster eatery perched on the edge of the harbor, right along scenic Route One, just north of downtown Rockland. This "lobster in the rough" style of eating was made famous during the 1970's by the Boothbay Region Lobstermens' Co-op of Boothbay Harbor and is the inspiration behind Claws. With amazing views of the inner Harbor and the Breakwater lighthouse and the comfortable seating area under the covered and heated expansive deck, diners are able to enjoy watching the boats motor by and see the goings-on at the Rockland Community Sailing Program next door all while feasting on award-winning seafood (and land-lover, too!) dishes and local craft beer and wine. Claws has won several culinary awards during the past 9 years, including 1st Place - Lobster Dinner, Best of the Best Knox County 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022; 1st Place, Professional Chef 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 1st Place - People’s Choice, Maine Lobsterpalooza Lobster Mac ‘n Cheese Competition 2016; 1st Place - Lobster Roll, Best of the Best Knox County 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022, and Business of the Year of Knox County 2017 and 2021....and many more. Owners Steve and Luanne Stinson believe that the key to success is for them to both be hands-on every day. Their three main goals for Claws are to keep business local, to buy locally harvested seafood and provide affordable family dining. All the while, they also strive to offer a high quality menu with both traditional and newer, more creative dishes, which may come as a pleasant surprise! So come on in, pull up a stool or picnic bench and dig in to some of the best local eats around! Claws is open seasonally, from mid-May until mid-October. 11:00 am to 9:00 pm, 7 days a week.
