Additional Date Information
In 1968, for $7,562, Martha Porch's parents bought the Two Lights property in Cape Elizabeth where The Lobster Shack sits, including the going business. Some 1,500 people a day are served in July and August in what is now a grandfathered commercial property in a residential zone. Martha, her husband Herb, son Jeff and his wife Katy are the owners, and granddaughter Olivia works there. Daughter Michelle helps Martha's parents, James and Ruth Leadbetter, run the gift shop. The .74-acre lot is assessed at $1.01 million, but none of the family is planning to sell. Employees of five or more years are treated to a trip to the Cayman Islands in the winter.
