Red's Eats review 7-16-08 - Wed, 07/16/08 11:34 PM

Am I missing something here??? The review shown today of this very well known lobster roll place lists the prices as of June 2005. A visit here is always warranted; Wiscasset isn't that far from Georgetown, Ct. How is Red's now in 2008?

They did not really review anything, they only added the picture of the menu front, but this means the overall review was updated, so it bubbled up to the top of the list of be eatery of the day

Can anyone tell me (a hater of mayo) if Red's lobster roll contains any mayo, or alternately if it is possible to get it with no mayo?

As I read the article, it comes with melted butter(or mayo)

I was there over Memorial Day Weekend

The lobster was served cold- but comes with melted butter on the side

Why bother going all the way up to Maine? Stop in Connecticut and get a really good hot, buttered (no mayonnaise within 42 miles) lobster roll -- a Connecticut lobster roll as invented at the long-gone (and seriously missed) Perry's in Milford, Connecticut back in the 1930s?

Assuming I ever get the opportunity for a "swing through the coastal NE" vacation, MH :-)

Come on. It would be good for you to get out of Cincinnati and see where this nation began. After all, if not for New England Ohio would be British.

I agree

However, the wife and kids are not nearly as interested in battlefields, monuments, and lobster rolls as I :-)

Forget the battlefields and monuments. Consider the apizza, hotdogs, fried clams, steak sandwiches and lobsters.

And in New Haven you can see where Benedict Arnold of the Governor's Footguard demanded the keys to the powder house from the governor so he could lead the guard to Lexington to fight the Redcoats.

Ah, but you surely know my wife and kids philosophy on eats by now.....ie....why drive 800 miles to Pepe's when Domino's is just a half mile away, and delivers?

Maybe if you could talk Frank into delivering to Cincinnati.....

(and now....back to the Red's Eats topic already in progress)
