I have been eyeing that Coveside place, the knuckle roll sounds good, the knuckles are my favorite part of the lobster, I will go in there next trip up, thanks for the tip!
As an aside, we introduced my daughter's Scottish boyfriend to Maine lobster this weekend, I am not too sure it was a hit, he liked the taste but disliked the shells (we got hard shelled) and would not let me help him. Needless to say, some bloodly fingers were involved...
I agrree on the Sea Basket, fresh, good food, have you tried the place on the wharf across from Reds?

    While in Maine, we had several lobster rolls, including one at the Cod End Restaurant on the municpal dock in Tennant's Harbor. Beautiful setting. The lobster roll was OK (a little too much mayo for my taste).

    I will try to find it on-line, but while we were in Maine, the Portland paper did a story on the best places for lobster rolls.

      Boston Magazine July 2006 has a "Lobster Blowout" section with top 20 lobster rolls within Boston's limits. Not all were Roadfood, but B&G Oysters were the favorite, SkipJack's is mentioned as a keeper and Neptune Oyster looks good too
      Unfortuantely, I have never been to any of the places mentioned, I need to get out more....

        Neptune Oyster is a fairly new spot in the North End on Salem St. Nice freindly and somewhat small. I haven't had the lobster roll but seen it served and it looked very good {I don't eat lobster} the clam chowder was very good and the raw bar was great. It's an ideal spot if you are dinning alone or with another person but not very codusive to large parties. It's two thumbs up on that spot. Chow Jim

          So many New Englanders have forsaken the Mud Season and moved to Southwest Florida that some of the finest Lobster Rolls are found here. Try Steamers between Port Charlotte and Englewood, south of Sarasota. Maybe not on the menu but they have them and they are great!

            OK, found my copy of the Portland Press-Herald from June 28, 2006. Here are the eight places they highlighted in central/southern Maine for lobster rolls:

            Bob's Seafood, Windham (won the 2005 title for "Maine's Best Lobster Roll from the Maine Lobster Promotion Council)
            The Good Table, Cape Elizabeth
            Miss Brunswick Diner, Brunswick
            The Lobster Station Restaurant, South Portland
            Nunan's Lobster Hut, Cape Porpoise
            Harraseeket's, South Freeport
            Two Lights Lobster Shack, Cape Elizabeth
            Red's Eats, Wiscasset

                To keep this ever-worthy subject alive and in view, I'd like to report that I had a really terrific hot buttered lobster roll yesterday at a place called Sam the Clam Pub and Grub in Plantsville, Ct. Large roll packed with claw meat and lots of knuckles, etc. Delicious! I don't know if this was unusual or not for the place as I,ve only been there a couple of times and always had fried food which is also great (whole bellies).
                Kind of pricey at $16.95 but it did include a load of curly fries and an insipid cup of cole slaw. Definitely not a dressup place and you can't wear your colors according to to the sign but the service was good and everybody was friendly.

                  Aarrgghh!! I live in NYC now and haven't had a lobster roll in a while, although I hear Pearl Oyster Bar and Mary's Fish Camp make pretty decent renditions. I used to go and pitch my tent on my aunt's lawn in New Harbor, ME (nor far from Red's Eats in Wiscasset) and she would get fresh lobsters from a boat in the morning. We would have lobsters, steamers, corn on the cob, salt potatoes for dinner (with drawn butter, of course) and then I'd eat cold lobster rolls (with mayo and celery, salt and pepper) for breakfast for 3 days. Such memories!

                      I know everyone goes to Essex, but try Yankee Lobster on Northern Ave. in Boston.

                            Hubby and I are going to the North End tonight for our anniversary. No specific plans, but I've wanted to try Neptune Oyster. If we do, I'll send a report card.

                                Hey KB, I was right on Pemaquid Point just down the road from the restaurant that is there on Capt. James Road. I can't remember the name of it, but my aunt used to hostess there.
