The Menu

From soups and sandwiches to small plates and sushi, Mine Oyster’s menu has a little bit of everything. Diners may choose from a variety of succulent seafood entrees, or change it up and order a meat dish. There’s even a vegetarian/vegan option. Some of our favorite meals include:

  • Fish & Chips: Perfect for lunch, this dish features breaded, deep-fried haddock served with hand-cut fries, slaw, and malt vinegar tartar.
  • Lobster Roll: Fresh lobster, smoky mayonnaise, and a grilled, buttery roll make this New England staple a must-try.
  • Duck Fat Fries: The duck fat fries at Mine Oyster are a local favorite. Order a beer and enjoy hand-cut Maine potatoes dripping in duck fat with whiskey ketchup or aioli on the side.
  • Wood-Grilled Seafood Extravaganza: The name says it all! Maine lobster tails, local oysters, scallops, shrimp, and Swordfish make this seafood extravaganza perfect for two. Grilled vegetables and garlic butter complete the meal.
