Amalfi on the Water
12 Water St
Rockland, Maine 04841
(207) 596-0012

Beautiful, chic and bright, Amalfi on the Water is blessed with the two things that make it one of the best Rockland restaurants: an ocean view and Maine lobster that will knock your socks off. For lunch you can try out the lobster roll, but dinner is where the main event comes. For those who prefer a lighter fare, the 1/2 lobster with gnocchi makes for an excellent appetizer. Or you can go all out for the steamed lobster, lobster risotto or seafood paella. If you're lucky you may even get to try the limited crab and lobster pie (only six are made per night). The prices are right for a thoroughly enjoyable meal of the freshest Maine lobster within a contemporary and sophisticated atmosphere. The restaurant is open from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays.

2 S Main St
Rockland, Maine 04841
(207) 596-0770

This sweet restaurant is much like your Rockland Bed and Breakfast, as it's set within a remodeled 19th century Victorian home. The chef/owner has brought an Italian flair to the coastal dishes that strive to use local food wherever possible, including its famous Maine lobster. Try the lobster risotto or the steamed, buttered lobster. Both are a delight to the taste buds. The food is fresh, simple and uncluttered, much like the restaurant and the chef herself. You can dine in any of the parlors or dining rooms, or reserve the upstairs rooms for private parties. Prices are considered moderate, and are certainly well worth the excellent cuisine. Opening hours are from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., with days being dependent upon the season. From June to October they're open Wednesday to Monday, excluding Sundays, and from November through May they are open Thursday to Monday, excluding Sundays. Primo is closed from January through April.

Suzuki's Sushi Bar
419 Main St
Rockland, Maine  04841
(207) 596-7447

For a totally different way to sample Maine lobster in Rockland restaurants, venture out of your Rockland Inn towards Suzuki's Sushi Bar. This restaurant has an Asian vibe that couples well with the coastal atmosphere while maintaining a contemporary feeling. They do Maine lobster in a variety of forms, including lobster nigiri, which features the succulent seafood atop an oval of rice. The lobster maki is also popular, being the typical western idea of sushi, a sushi roll complete with cucumber, lettuce and avocado. You can also try out their numerous other specialties that feature local food within Eastern dishes. Prices are decent and for lobster, as with most restaurants, are dependent upon the market price. Suzuki's is open from 5 p.m. every Tuesday to Saturday. You can call after 3 p.m. for reservations, or call earlier and leave a message.
