Super fresh seafood. Choose with care. Don't let the kitschy truck scare you.

Tried a bunch of stuff. Some items, fried clams for instance, were as good as any I have ever had and I've had plenty. Excellent lobster roll, no surprise. Big miss was the swordfish sandwich. Not because of the swordfish, that was really excellent, fresh as could be and perfectly cooked. Way... read more

On the side of the road, (RT 1 north) just passed the Hannafords, look to the left for people lined up waiting for all seafood things fried. With the exception of the lobster roll (very good) and the requisite hot dog, everything else goes into the fryer. Haddock (husband liked a lot) swordfish chunks, whole belly clams (the only kind...

Best lobster roll that we had in Maine, and we tried quite a few (including Red's Eats)! We went with the Hot with Butter option instead of Cold with Mayo, and it was exactly what this mid-westerner wanted in a lobster roll. The kids had clams and haddock, which were great as well. Even the cole slaw was worth the... More

We stopped while camping in the area for a few weeks. My husband had the lobster roll and I had the fried scallop roll. The bed was beautifully toasted and the lobster was fresh with just mayo, as it should be. The scallops were golden brown and very fresh. The prices are reasonable and comparable to other seafood places. We... More

Hot lobster rolls - fantastic Swordfish - 👍🏼 Fried clams - oh yes. Service - with a smile. For a foodie truck, this place is awesome. Four umbrella picnic tables on wooden platform completed this roadside gastronomical attraction.

Made this the last stop before heading back to CT. We enjoyed a lobster roll and crab cake. After we were finished devouring the food, we looked to find the lobster traps as we swear the lobster was just pulled from the ocean. If you're looking for an amazing lobster roll, look no further than the intersection of Ross Road... More

Stopped at this roadside food truck and what a great surprise!! My girls got the hot dogs which they liked and my hubby & I got the twin lobster rolls which were delicious...fresh, overflowing and cooked perfectly. They have a nice decked picnic bench area to the side. Just what we were looking for. Will definitely be back!

Fantastic food, great pricing, and the freshest seafood you can ask for. They also have burgers and other items for non-seafood eaters in the family. Their 50/50 burger (half burger and half bacon) is delicious. My husband is a huge fan of their fried clams.

Just stopping to see this old truck is worth it, but the seafood is mouthwateringly delicious. Ample food portions, even for sharing. This is our summer treat, fried clams, fries, iced tea at the red picnic tables watching the tourist traffic roll by.
