You may also want to see our 2012 update, Secret Lobster Shacks of Maine, with more info, photos, and an updated map!
Update: We've received suggestions for additional spots, so we've removed the "12" from the title, as that number is no longer correct - there are more!
Not too long ago we wrote a post about lobster in Maine (Visiting Maine Part 4 - Lobster, Lobstah, Ahhh, Heaven). In that post we mentioned an article from Travel + Leisure magazine from a few years ago, called "10 Best Lobster Shacks in Maine." We noted that a couple of our favorites were missing from the list.
We've also posted previously about the seasons for lobster, hard and soft shells, etc., in a post called "Where Should I Go for Maine Lobster."
Little did we know, but Travel + Leisure has updated that article with a June, 2009 version of "10 Best Lobster Shacks in Maine." There are some wonderful places for lobster in that article, but we still think they're missing some good ones.
However, one of the questions we most frequently hear is, "Where should I go for a lobster dinner?" Consequently, we've put together a map of the top 10 from Travel + Leisure, plus a couple of our favorites, and release it below as a public service :^)

If we missed your favorite lobster shack or restaurant, please let us know in the comments and we'll see if we can add it for future reference.
