STEVE KINGSTON

Owner & King of the Lobster Rolls

Steve grew up summering at Goose Rocks Beach and got his entrepreneurial start with a lemonade pushcart when he was a Bates sophomore. He likes to say that even though he works 18 hour days for six months straight every year, he hasn’t worked a day since he and his wife Jeni bought the place in 2000. He likes the lobster roll with both…after all, he invented it. He is our number one taste tester and seafood fan and would probably eat our fried clams for breakfast. Steve is extremely proud to have all three of his daughters working with him at The Clam Shack.

If Steve is not here, it means it’s off-season and he’s either traveling with his family, visiting a daughter at college, or scheming about a winter project that will just get completed the day before we open!

BETSEY MAHONEY

Assistant to the King

Betsey Mahoney fell into her position in the midst of realizing that she really needed a job on the water. She calls the Clam Shack her happy place, and her favorite job ever. She would choose a lobster roll with both, but is partial to our scallops and our boiled lobster. When not at work she can be found thinking about what she needs to get done the next time she is at work!




 MIKE CYMBRAK

 Seafood Extraordinaire

We were lucky that when the Kingstons bought the Shack in 2000, Mike came along with the place. While teaching foreign languages at Biddeford High School, Mike worked summers at Clam Shack Seafoods. When he retired after 38 years, he kept his summer gig with us and is starting his 23rd season here. Affectionately known as our mothershucker because of his speed and skill, his favorite memory of the Shack is shucking for 10 hours straight while preparing for NYC’s Lobster Rumble. His favorite seafood here is the lobster he sneaks while shucking, and tootsie rolls are his favorite candy.

Laura Burne is our revered book keeper, a recently delegated and much appreciated position. Laura grew up in Maine and she and her family live on a small farm in Kennebunkport.
