Here’s our story

In 1902, F.O. Goldthwaite founded what is now known as Goldthwaite's Pool Lobster. Back then, it was a fish market-turned-grocery store. Now, F.O. Goldthwaite's Pool Lobster is a little bit of everything. We're a general store, restaurant, and lobster pound, and we carry a variety of fresh Gulf of Maine fish, meats, and poultry by the pound. With its longstanding history, Goldthwaite's has prided itself on serving the Biddeford Pool community and beyond for over 100 years.
