This may an old subject, but I am on a quest for the perfect "Lobster Roll" I live in New England and and have been trying these rolls at every "Roadfood" place I try. Here are some of my experiences:
Denmos- awful, rubbery,cold lobster the only good thing was the roll
Glenwood, Hamden Ct- I have not tried this yet, my daughter goes to school in Hamden, should I try this on my next trip?
Haraseeket Lobster, Freeport, ME- beautiful setting, ok roll
Chauncey Creek Lobster, Kittery, ME- pretty good, served on hamburg type roll, location was so nice
Sea Basket-Wiscasset, ME Really good lobster, different homemade roll, ICEBERG lettuce roll, fresh and tasty(I have not tried Red's yet because the lines are TOO LONG, this summer I'll call ahead)
Sarah's-Wiscasset, ME Ok, homemade roll was nice, the specialty here are AMAZING soups and homemade breads
Cooleen's Clam bar rt 130 Wiscasett, ME-a new place owned by former New Yorkers, good lobster, but "fancy" lettuce I took off and asked for melted butter, nice people , I will go back
Shaw's New Harbor ME: pretty good, I prefer the shore dinner here
Now last night we went to (although not roadfood)"Summer Shack" in Cambridge, and the lobster roll had cucumber, scallions and "Fancy" lettuce, YUK, I was very dissapointed, the roll was toasted and not grilled, but, the oysters were EXCELLENT and service great.
Kelly's- Natck, MA Ok ,I'd rAther have roast beef and FRENCH FRIES!
An Aside- the '99' makes a passable lobster roll
On with my quest!
