When the Ray Family re-opened the newly renovated Weirs Beach Lobster Pound in 2008, they continued a legacy that dates back to 1973. That was the year that then-owner Skip Maclean steamed his first lobster, turning a small eatery into a local favorite for fresh seafood. Today, the restaurant's Maine lobsters continue to attract diners, whether they're served whole or transformed into bisque, classic rolls, or decadent mac 'n' cheese. Weirs Beach Lobster Pound also serves hand-cut New York strip steaks—the seafood of the land—and Italian dishes such as house-made pasta and thin crust pizza. Should the aquatic fare make diners dream of the water, they can stop by the restaurant's roof deck patio to take in views of Lake Winnipesaukee.
