Five Islands Lobster Co. is ranked as Travel Channel’s “101 Tastiest Places to Chowdown.” However, it’s also ranked as Window to the Wood’s “Best View of a Working Fishing Pier.” Famous for their seafood and lobsters ranging from 1.5 lbs. to 4.5 lbs (for the latter, they give you a rock to crack the claws), plus outdoor seating with a spectacular view. This lobster pound is worth the trip though, no matter the season. If you drive out to Georgetown during the operational summer months, you’ll be another face in the crowd admiring the coastal scenery and enjoying fresh, buttery lobster tails. If you drive out during December, you’ll be the only one there (and slightly cold), BUT, even though the lobster pound is closed until spring, it’s worth it! The closer you get to this small ocean village from Bath, you’ll begin to spot towers of lobster pots in front of quintessential cottages lobster boats in the driveways. Before long the picturesque rugged coast comes into view and you suddenly realize it’s worth the trip.
