Great Lobster In Maine At Beal’s Lobster Pier

Stu Snyder co-owner of Maine’s famous Beal’s Lobster Pier chats with Paul about what makes lobster such a treat in Maine. They also talk about seasonal differences, best ways to prepare and who has the best lobster roll. Beal’s is on a beautiful part of the Maine coast. Here’s some more about Beals in their own words.

A visit to Beal’s Lobster Pier is always a highlight – no matter the season.

At our working lobster pier in Southwest Harbor, Maine, you and your family will have a blast watching the boats coming in and the lobstermen unloading fresh Maine lobster. Hear the creak of rope on the moorings. Catch the scent of saltwater on the breeze. And enjoy the waterfront view. But make sure you bundle up if you stop by during the autumn and winter months!

Maine has so much to offer – even in the off season. From October’s vibrant foliage, to December’s beautiful, thick blankets of snow, you’re sure to see something that will take your breath away at our working lobster pier in beautiful Southwest Harbor.

Our restaurant is closed from October to May, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy fresh lobster from Maine’s pristine coast. Even when Maine is cold enough to freeze our beards and eyelashes, we’re still hard at work to deliver live lobsters, fresh and frozen lobster meat, and more to your doorstep. Use our Beal’s at Home service any time to order. Imagine a steaming stock pot, the fresh scent of lobster plucked straight from the salty sea, the satisfying crunch as you crack into this delicacy, and the sweet, succulent taste of a dish you thought you could only have in the summertime. So shake off those cold-weather blues and serve up a fresh Maine lobster dinner for your family – you know you want to!

Our Beal’s at Home service also offers a favorite cold weather seafood delight – scallops. When the temperatures drop, the scallop season begins, and we’re happy to offer you these delicious saltwater morsels in addition to your order of fresh Maine lobster – think of them as a side that can only come from Maine’s coast.
