Lobster in Portland, Maine?

ConsApi | Jul 9, 2012 07:11 AM

I'm going to be up in Portland at the end of the month, and I have a craving for lobsters (and maybe a lobster roll for lunch the next day). I'm staying at the Clarion, midway between the airport and downtown. What I'm looking for is what we used to call a "lobster pound," a joint where you can get a platter of lobsters, steamer clams and maybe some sides (corn on the cob, slaw, etc.), and eat them outside (or maybe better, a screened porch) on a picnic table. The best atmosphere is, of course, a place right on the docks.

Anyway, I know of a place in Freeport that meets the description, but I wonder if there are any closer to Portland itself. Haven't had a good lobster dinner in a while, and want to indulge.
