Sea Basket

303 Bath Rd., Wiscasset, ME - (207) 882-6581
Sea Basket lobster stew is exquisite: milk-rich but not thickened or heavy, it is loaded with hunks of knuckle and claw meat. Fish and clam chowder are similarly excellent; and the baskets of fried shrimp, clams, and haddock are all fresh and crisp. Sea Basket is a neat and tidy functional roadside café.

Don't let that cheap Styrofoam cup fool you: this is a high-class bowl of lobster stew, rich as Rockefeller.

Here is one instance where a high-quality bun actually detracts from the goodness of a sandwich. The lobster salad inside the bun is excellent, but the muscular character of the good roll in which it is served overwhelms the delicacy of what's inside. Still, the quality of the lobster is beyond reproach.

Sea Basket offers three different flavors of whoopie pies: raspberry cream, peanut butter, and the standard devil's food cake and marshmallow like this one.

Sea Basket has been a source of excellent Downeast fare since 1981. It is a humble roadside restaurant, but the food it serves is something to be proud of.
