Rockland Cafe is Rockland’s version of a local diner, and has the distinction of being one of the few restaurants in town that offers fresh steamed lobster dinners (single, double, triples) year round. They keep their tank right at the front of the restaurant. The owners’ nephew “lobsters,” so he keeps the restaurant supplied with a fresh catch. On occasion he hauls in a rare blue or orange or ½ blue/½ yellow lobster, and they will display it in the restaurant before it goes to the Maine State Aquarium.
If fried seafood is what you are looking for it is hard to beat Rockland Cafe’s fried seafood dinners. They come in small, large or all you can eat for very reasonable prices. One of the specialties is crab cakes made by with the owner’s mothers recipe. Another favorite is Wayne’s chowder the seafood chowder, which is wonderfully rich and full of clams, lobsters, haddock and scallops without potato filler. All of the french fries are hand cut, too! The rest of the menu is rounded out with a variety subs, sandwiches, meat loaf, burgers, pasta and seafood dishes.
Set in the heat of historic downtown, Rockland Cafe is open year round and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Hours of operation for dinner service will vary based on time of year, but we will be happy to check on this for you prior to your stay at our Rockland bed and breakfast.
