UMaine Dining brings back Luke’s Lobster to hungry Black Bear football fans

Continuing its dedication to providing local food to its visitors, University of Maine Dining announces that Portland-based Luke’s Lobster will once again be available at the Homecoming Black Bear football game in the concessions area.

Luke’s Lobster will offer its Maine-style 4-ounce and 6-ounce lobster rolls, 8-ounce bowls of New England-style clam chowder along with Cape Cod potato chips, maple and traditional whoopie pies and Pepsi beverages. Payments can be made with accepting debit and credit cards.

Luke’s Lobster Co-founder Luke Holden and Vice President of Seafood Company Operations Ben McKinney are active members of the UMaine Lobster Institute. The business collaborated with University of Maine Cooperative Extension when the business opened its processing facility, Cape Seafood, in Saco, Maine in 2012. This collaboration included educational resources and food safety guidance. Since then, Luke’s Lobster has provided internships for students and opportunities for talks and lectures.

There are several other local food options available to football fans at the game from UMaine Dining and local brews are available for those 21 and older at the beer garden. Available beers include offerings from Geaghans, Sea Dog Brewing, the Orono Brewing Company, and other local breweries. 

Fans will also enjoy traditional concessions favorites — popcorn, chicken strip baskets, pretzels, fried dough, hot dogs, hamburgers and beverages — can all be purchased near the stadium seating by the football field.

Luke’s Lobster will only accept cash for dining purchases. UMaine Dining’s concessions area and beer garden accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover credit cards, debit cards and cash. ATMs are available at the Alfond Arena near the ticket office.
