The Lobster Pool
The view of Ipswich Bay is about as good as you can get on Cape Ann, but don’t let that make you believe that is this establishment’s best feature. The self-service Lobster Pool offers a self-proclaimed “dining in the rough,” which is code for the focus being on the food and not the atmosphere. Who needs a fancy establishment anyway with a natural surrounding like this? Grabbing a picnic table may be difficult around sunset time, but well worth the wait and hassle.
