Don't just drive by. Step back into the 50s, and have a milkshake or some pink lemonade and a fresh crabmeat or lobster roll, and perhaps the best onion rings you've ever tasted. Don't be in a hurry, though: it's usually crowded, and things are prepared to order. Midafternoon is best time to score a parking place. Sock hop mid-season.

Read about this place online and had to give it a try while we were in the area. Great fun to drive right up, under the canopy and turn your lights on for service. Never experienced anything like this in my life! Wait staff are friendly and although order took a little while to arrive, I was pleased that it... More

I love lobster rolls and this place just fulfilled my expectations. Lovely toasted bun with a succulent lobster filling with some gorgeous onion rings as a side. Washed down with a vanilla milkshake. Heavenly ! Waitresses were very helpful and friendly and look forward to going back there on our next Maine visit.

My goal in Maine was to eat as much lobster as humanly possible. We googled best lobster roll in Brunswick and Fat Boy popped up. It did not disappoint. Perfectly toasted bun, not a lot of extra stuffing in the lobster salad. I wish I had room to eat two. Kinda fun to be served in the car; makes you... More

This drive in is a Brunswick institution, and it's opening and closing, which roughly coincide with the beginning of winter and spring, respectively, signal the changing of seasons. The food is great - we really love the burgers and the seafood. The car service is a nice nostalgic touch. If you are in the area, i would highly recommend a... More

A local clued me in. Excellent lobster rolls, fried clams, onion rings, frappes, etc., in a genuine drive in from the fifties. Eat there or carry out. Not a chain. I don't miss this when in the area.

Old fashioned Drive In. Waitresses come out to your car. Food tray on your car window. Good fast food. Old fashioned frappes, shakes and hamburgers. Prices good

We stopped here on a brief visit to Brunswick, and read about the Drive In that has remained the same for many years....very interesting!! It is across from the old airfield at the Naval Air Station Brunswick, and you can miss it if you are not looking. The establishment has a few seats inside, but most are served from their... More

While on a family vacation from Wisconsin, we went past this drive in and it brought back memories from my childhood. We noticed the place was packed like a car lot. We enjoyed the food, especially the homemade onion rings. Staff was pleasant and we enjoyed our food within no time. Great little drive-in
