The 9 Best Lobster Shacks In New Hampshire You’ll Absolutely Love
There’s nothing more classically New England than eating a delicious, dripping lobster at a lobster shack. Fresh seafood, summer sun – what could be better? These 9 spots, in no particular order, are all amazing spots for lobster. Don’t hold back on the drawn butter!
1. Brown's Lobster Pound, Seabrook
Brown's Lobster Pound has been providing the classic New England lobster experience since 1950. Nothing fancy here - just good lobster served on a waterfront deck. Brown's is BYOB, which also helps keep costs down. Visit at 407 Nh Hwy 286
Seabrook, NH 03874.
2. Sanders Lobster Company, Portsmouth
This place is the real deal. It's primarily a spot to buy freshly caught lobster, but pay an extra $2 and they'll boil the lobster for you and you can eat it right there by the water. Bring your own butter! Enjoy the experience at 54 Pray St Portsmouth, NH 03801.
3. Markey's Lobster Pool, Seabrook
Across the street from Brown's you'll find Markey's - and all the locals have a favorite of the two. We think both are worth a try! Markey's is a little smaller but no less delicious - and they serve beer. Stop by at 420 State Rt 286 Seabrook, NH 03874.
