  • Fun place to see just outside the center of town. Giant Lobster that you can climb and take your picture on.  more »
  • Not much to see except the lobster! As for things to do... This is it! Makes a nice photographic subject to send back home! This reminds of the largest axe in mactaquac in New Brunswick!  more »
  • Fun! Cool statue and quaint shops. Great for a picture. A short walk to the lobster store. Nice stop along the road  more »

  • A great place to stretch your legs while taking in the attraction. You can climb up the provided stairs and have your photo taken with this giant sized lobster, butter not provided! LOL Souvenir shops offer lots of great memorabilia and clean washrooms on site.
  • Interesting figure. Memorable to say the least. It was an entertaining visit and easy to find!
  • While the lobster itself is quite cheesy and attached by tourists from all sides, the surround area is worth stoping for. It's a nice little park with a souvenir shop, visitors centre and very photogenic old sheds. Nice views and a huge parking lot.
  • Makes for an excellent photo. I also like how you can climb up on it.
  • This was a quality lobster. Best one I've ever posed with.
