I woke up bright and early and saw a lobster roll on the Thrillest.com. I went back to sleep and dreamt about getting this sandwich, which I forgot to order because I was making a prosciutto sandwich right in their restaurant and my dad was driving me in a van and was peeling out and doing donuts like a Penny Racer. Anyway, I woke up in time to get there when the restaurant opened.

Lobster rolls at $8small/$14large is a pretty good deal from what I know. They give you a pretty good amount of fresh tasting lobster in the large.

I chose the Lunch Box special – large 14oz Lobster Roll, 1 Empress Crab Claw, Miss Vickie’s Chips and a Maine Root soda (I chose Sarsaparilla) – $19.60 after tax. It seems like their going for the simple approach – little use of mayo and seasoning so perhaps you taste the lobster more. The only problem is that I don’t think lobster taste like much without seasoning or mayo. Same thing with the Empress Crab Claw, pretty bland. It all tasted fresh, but I could’ve used some hot sauce, melted butter, more mayo or fancy sauce. Time to go back to bed.

    If you’d like your money’s worth and find yourself in redhook at fairway… their lobster roll (comes in a hotdog bun, hefty lobster meat, chips and a pickle) is a great deal. 10 bucks last time I was there. Also you can hit up the vendors by the park for tasty mexican treats.
    p.s. I love your blog
