Brown’s Lobster Pound in Seabrook, NH, Reopens After 2017 Fire

by Marc Hurwitz

A decades-old mainstay for seafood is open once again more than a half year after a fire shut the place down.

According to a Facebook post from the restaurant, Brown's Lobster Pound in Seabrook, NH, has reopened, with the note saying that they were open over the weekend and will also be open this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with regular hours apparently on the way starting Friday, April 13. The post from Brown's goes on to say "Thank you all for well wishes and support during this very difficult time. We ask that you be patient as we are dealing with new equipment and trying to get back into the swing of things. We can't wait to see you all for another great season!!!!"

Last August, Brown's suffered major damage from a fire that destroyed the kitchen and the rear of the building, with the dining room also suffering smoke and water damage. The restaurant--which first opened in 1950--had hoped to open late last month but the opening date was pushed back due to bad weather and delays in the delivery of equipment.

The address for Brown's Lobster Pound is 407 Route 286, Seabrook, NH, 03874. Its website can be found at
