About Buoy Shack

Locally sourced. Locally owned. When you eat at Buoy Shack, you get Maine's freshest seafood, and your money supports other local businesses on Maine's working waterfront.
We're here, because we want to give locals and visitors a food experience that captures the flavor of the Maine seacoast.

Our Owners

The Buoy Shack was founded in 2022 by Badger's Island residents Will and Liza Banfield, with local restauranteur Joel Harris and local businessman Matt Junkin. The Buoy Shack is a special place that we are excited to share with the world.
Come experience island life for yourself, and a visit Maine Vacationland — even if it's just for lunch.
