Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier

16 Chauncey Creek Rd.
Kittery Point , ME , United States
(207) 439-1030

Just a short drive off Route 1, yet eons away from Kittery’s outlet-mall madness, Chauncey Creek has lured the faithful since 1948 while blissfully remaining off the maps of northbound tourists. No ocean views here—just a quiet tidal river amid a thick spruce forest. The policy is bring-your-own-everything: regulars show up with coolers full of beer, wine, salad, foie gras, you name it. Chauncey Creek supplies the lobster; there’s also a raw bar with Malpeque oysters and cherrystones from Prince Edward Island. Choose your own lobster from the tank, commandeer a brightly colored picnic table on the dock (or, if it’s a buggy evening, on the screened deck), and wait for your order while the river drifts by.
