Maine Lobster pounds/alcohol

We are getting ready to embark on a road trip through New England, and are particularly interested in hitting as many Lobster Pounds as possible (many of those mentioned on this site)....just wondering that, since it appears most do not serve alcohol, is it permissible to bring wine/beer ourselves to enjoy with our meals?

Thanks!

    Sure! Well, at least at Young's it was ok -

    Make sure you search the forums for other threads on Maine - we went last year and there are excellent suggestions! Have a great time and report back! I'm jealous! Sue

    Yeah, most places let you BYOB on the picnic tables out back. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Thanks guys...yeah I know, there seem to be sooooo many cool sounding places....don't really know where to start, but will try to hit the highlights per Roadfood....

    My only other concern is that most of these places are open for the season, since we plan to head that way (from Chicago) starting tomorrow

    I'm not sure whether you'll be in the neighborhood (the title of your thread says Maine, but your post indicates a trip through New England), but in case you're interested Abbotts in Noank, CT is currently open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. They allow you to BYOB and lots of people do.

    A good solution would be to visit J's Oyster ... right on the waterfront in Portland. Nice, rustic seafood in a bar setting. One of my top favorites.

    Try the Chauncey Creek Lobster Pound at Kittery Point, Maine. You may BYOB, and the setting and food are great. I think they might be open now for the season.

    I second this recommendation! This place is quite good and the setting is also magnificent.

    I LOVE Chauncey Creek too,I have seen people bring picnics-salads bread etc too to go along with their lobsters and steamers. Further up the coast are several we enjoy- in Round Pond , I forget the name ,it is the only place on the water (except the Anchor Inn which is a more formal resturant right next to it) but they have a lovely setting on the harbor and it is BYOB. The Pemaquid Fisherman's Co-op is fun also and is BYOB. For a more diverse menu, Shaw's in New Harbor has a bar and land lubber items and is right on "New Habah Habah" where "Message In a Bottle" was filmed. (Let me know if you need translation)

    Hi all...just got back from 20 day trip thru New England, and boy are our heads spinning from the great Roadfood...sought many out, and stumbled across some by pure accident (the Clam Box in Ipswich for example...WOW!..never knew fried clams could be this good..not to mention the scallops!)

    And yes, we sought out Chauncey Creek one afternoon...although it was raining and chilly, still a fantastic experience right there by the river...sat inside the sheltered area, and enjoyed brilliant lobster...truly a dramatic, memorable day in Maine..

    Thanks for the tip!

    Boy, everyone has clams on the brain this afternoon... see also Fried Clams thread under seafood and Roadfood News.

    Thanks... it really was....

    Forgot to mention the heavenly white clam pizza at Don Pepe's in New Haven; the lobster roll at the Clam Shack in Kennebunkport; and the "Pitza" in Hazleton, PA!
