Hot or cold, served up in a buttery roll with some mayo or lemon, nothing hits the spot quite like a sandwich packed with lobster or should we say lobstahhh. Whether you're seaside or inside, you can't go wrong with ordering this dish off the menu at these restaurants! Check out our five favorite places to get a lobster roll this summer.
1. Belle Isle Seafood - Winthrop, MA
This happening spot was featured on the Travel Channel and named one of the best by Improper Bostonian and Boston Magazine. We trust their reliable tastebuds! Belle Isle's lobster roll is comprised of a heaping pile of tail, claw, and knuckle meat and a tad of mayonnaise on a crisp hot dog bun. So good!
2. East Boothbay General Store - East Boothbay, ME
East Boothbay serves up their lobster on an artisanal roll instead of the traditional hot dog bun, setting them apart from other local eateries. Their roll is packed full of lobster and is topped off with mayo, lemon zest, and salad greens. So fresh!
3. Abbott's Lobster in the Rough - Noank, Connecticut
You might be surprised to find a good lobster roll in Connecticut but we'll tell you, nothing beats this glorious creation! Served up both hot and cold, the mound of lobster meat in this sandwich takes center stage. You won't find anything like it anywhere else!
4. The Beach Plum - North Hampton, New Hampshire
Voted five years in a row as the best lobster roll in the state of New Hampshire speaks volumes for The Beach Plum. Their overstuffed roll comes in different sizes (six, eight, 10-ounce or foot long) and is packed with flavor. You can't bite into this one without losing a few good pieces!
5. The Bayside Restaurant - Westport, MA
These lobster rolls are served "naked" with mayo and butter on the side so you can prepare them to your liking! With a generous amount of lobster served, this overflowing sandwich doesn't even have room for condiments. Enjoy each bite, it's so worth it!
