Food is really good. Staff are very pleasant. Easy in and out with your vehicle. And you sit on nice clean picnic tables with umbrellas to enjoy your meal. A bit pricey. And would be nice if they offered a burger on their menu.

I must begin by confessing that I don't actually eat lobster, but Boyfriend was very pleased with his. I had a hotdog which was really good. The service was great and they also have very well-maintained picnic tables and umbrellas.

this is perhaps the best of the lot! A reconditioned Cold War-era Civil Defense canteen truck serves very tasty lobster rolls, whole belly and strip clams, scallops, haddock and other tasty seafood with all the "fixins". The take-out lobster rolls we ordered contained a good quantity of fresh Maine lobster (what else?) and just the right amount of mayo and... More

This is probably the best lunch spot for Maine seafood in Kennebunk. Located at the crossroads of Portland and Ross Road, this vintage food truck serves great food. The fried clams were juicier and had more belly than others we had in the area and the cold lobster roll and a great light mayo dressing that made it surpasses the... More

Don't let the vintage themed food truck throw you - stop and have a delicious lobster roll here on Rte #1. Bright red picnic tables with umbrellas provide a shady comfortable spot to eat there or take your food to go. Hot with butter or traditional and cold, lobster both ways was a plentiful portion and good. Large menu of... 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...

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 better than most restaurants but the standard sauce,... More

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
