I Want Another Lobster Roll!

I want another lobster roll, not just any lobster roll but one from Red's Eats.  I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon - I'm in Ontario and not planning on heading down Route 1 in Maine.  If you're lucky enough to be going that way, a stop at the little lobster shack on the side of the road in Wiscasset is very important.  Don't be put off by the long lines  - it'll be well worth it when you have that lobster roll in front of you...

We were there just after Labor Day - it took us about 45 minutes to get to the window.  That's me in the flowered top - edging ever so close.....

I've had lobster rolls before but nothing compares to this - first off, all lobster rolls should be on a top slice bun - hamburger buns or kaisers just aren't the same.    I've never seen anything like this - they advertise a pound of lobster in each roll, I believe it - my goodness - it's crazy - it was so big you had to eat it with a fork and knife.   Lobster rolls usually have mayo, not this one, it was pure meat - claws, tails, yummmm!!  And a little dish of melted butter!!!  We also tried the onion rings, which were homemade and oh, so good!!!  I wanted to try the clam cakes - we ordered two  - they were tasty too!!

We're spoiled now - no lobster roll will ever compare!!! 


  1. Wow! I'm drooling here!! And this is despite the fact that I ate 3 lobsters in 4 days in PEI last

  2. Looks delicious!!

    Happy Anniversary!!!!

  3. Just dying to go to Red's! I've had a terrific lobster roll in Montauk, NY (on Long Island), but I am drooling for a Red's roll!
