Newick's Lobster House
Since 1948 Newick has been bringing the best and freshest seafood to New England. It all began on the bountiful waters of Great bay. My grandfather, John Newick, sold his surplus lobster catch at a roadside stand on Dover Point. As time went by more and more people began to come from all over for the famous lobster rolls. Eventually my father, Jack Newick, built a takeout shack where our Dover location now stands. The menu grew and so did the shack. Jack continually added more seating until a devastating fire in 1984. After that he built what may be the largest lobster shack anywhere with 650 seats. Today, with more than sixty years and three generations in the business, Newickac2s remains committed to bringing the best and freshest seafood to all three of our locations. Thank you for visiting us and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Never been impressed with the place. I could overlook eating in a cafateria if the food was decent. We've been several times( family members like to go there on their birthday for the $10 off). Tasteless fried seafood, average sized portions. I can see why they've closed the other locations
Its fried food with a view. Some snobs may complain about paper plates but they will just never get it. Its traditional fried NE food, good portions and a great view. You eat free on your birthday. (they check you)
Oct 2006: I had LIVE lobster!!!: The BEST lobster I've ever eaten. What are you waiting for?
P.S. I revisited the place oct 2007 and it was still awesome! I brought 2 co-workers, we all had the double 1-pounder and they fell in love with the place as well.
A good place to eat if you don't mind overcooked greasy fried seafood served on paper plates with plastic forks. The service is clueless and the place has all the wonderful ambience of a high school cafeteria
Ok.. this is MY town..and I know seafood...
If you saw my review about The Weathervane Restaraunt in Kittery, then this has to be 10 times better.
No one does it like Newicks...no-one!
They seat like what?...1000 people? and right ON THE BAY!
if the sun gets in your eyes, ask them to pull the blinds! (or do it yourself like I do heheh)
I remember th old place that burned down when I was a kid...how sad that was, but they got right back up and showed the Seacoast Area they were still #1...and they have doneso ever since.
Of course, my favorite is the Fishermans Platter (I never order Lobster in a restaraunt..thats stricly for tourists and lazy people) but the Lobster is Fresh!
Consider that there are only about 10,000 seafood restaraunts around here... but only 1 Newicks (yes I know about the other one)
Staff is friendly and professional..not too many newbies here, and as long as you can deal with the paper/plastic plates and utensils, you will Love it.
