Our Story

Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound® is located on Route 3 at 1237 Bar Harbor Road in Trenton, Maine, just before the bridge onto Thompson's and Mount Desert Island. It is hard to miss with the row of wood-fired cookers out front smoking away and the big sign on the roof that says, "LOBSTERS". At the present time, the seasonal eatery features boiled lobsters and steamed clams, clam chowder and lobster stew, lobster and crabmeat cocktails, lobster, crabmeat and tuna sandwiches, rolls and melted butter, with sides of potato salad and coleslaw. Crab dip as an appetizer has been added in recent years as well as Oysters. Blueberry cake and pie along with whoopie pies are available for dessert along with assorted ice cream bars. For those who are seafood challenged, peanut butter & jelly and ham & cheese sandwiches are available. Beverages include assorted sodas, coffee, hot & iced tea, beer and wine. Sorry, no fried or grilled foods. Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound® is grease-free!
