Depending on how you like your lobster roll.

I only gave the lobster roll 3*'s because I prefer it to be grilled, with a little mayo, celery and a little lettuce. With that said, if you like yours toasted and with only lobster meat in it, this is the place for you because that is how it is served. I know a lot of people prefer it this... read more

After LL Bean and many other outlets we were hungry. $20 something for a couple of jr lobster rolls and some soup isn't a great bargain but it was good enough to remember.

The best lobster bisque I've had. Large pieces of lobster, great flavor and no shells like are in many others. I tried the Lobster Roll also and it was delicious.

I rarely write bad reviews, but....my experience with Linda Bean's located on the LL Bean campus was terrible. I ordered the lobster roll and I will confess that my rating is based a lot upon what I saw at the ordering window. As my food was being prepared, I noticed how much time was spent putting the lobster on a... More

We walked out of LL Beans and noticed this establishment nearby, where we grabbed a quick, tasty lobster roll with delicious bread, slaw, pickles and chips. Also had good clam chowder.

Fresh bread, soft roll, slightly toasted, delicious lobster, pickles, light dressing- awesome! Bread has to be very good for a great lobster roll, and this was the freshest and best I had from Maine to Boston.

We were shopping at the outlets in Freeport and Lobster Roll at L.L.Bean wasn't open for the season. There was a sign on the window indicating that they weren't open until May. We were there on May 5th. We ventured across the street to L Bean's Maine Kitchen and had the Maine lobster tails of joy and lobster pockets and... More

Disappointed with quality and service. Lobster sandwich contained more dressing than the cheese and lobster when it was located; lobster taste as if it was marinated in vinegar. Supermarket tomatoes??? We felt rushed in mid afternoon when half the tables were occupied. While eating we were asked if we wanted anything else, not sure because we were in middle of... More

Stopped here yesterday for a quick lunch. Had a salad with baby spinach, beets and warm goat cheese.......mmmmmmm delicious. Then had a small portion of fried calamari and lemons. And ended with a scrumptious dessert of Chocolate Mousse Cake. I have to say it was one of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time. I truly... More

Tasting like lobster had been dipped in salad dressing. No lobster taste at all. Calamari was undercooked and disgusting. The staff was a nice as can be. Maybe they can get a job at a good restaurant.
