  • The lobster festival is a tourist trap - beware! "Cheap" lobster for 10$/lb? Seriously? That same quality lobster costs 6.99$/lb in Montreal, just as tasty!!! This was the first time I went for the lobster festival and it will be my last time. Enjoy gouging tourists while you can, it won't last long. People will realize they're being ripped off. All the restaurants are extremely expensive, and the local motel owners will always refer you to their friends.
  • My kids loved climbing all over the lobster and posing for pictures on it. Nice area and several little shops around the area. It is made for tourists but it is a friendly place.
  • It's a giant lobster. There are some little shops close by. Enjoyed an ice cream sandwich by the water.
  • Best giant lobster I've ever seen. I felt right at home between its claws.
  • Well. Perfect postcard picture! Great souvenir shops around. Huge parking
