I usually am disappointed by over-hyped, crowded "best"' places that let their guard down and quality slip because of all the crowds showing up. Not here; it's really the best lobster I've ever had, anywhere before or since. There's a line in high season, no matter the weather. People wait patiently; the service is quick, efficient and still friendly given... More

Saw this place on tv several times, and it is better than even they proclaimed!! I would not wait an hour, but if there isn't much of a line: it's the best Lobster rolls we had on our entire Maine trip!!!! We did have a lot of lobster rolls on the trip, but did these are the best that I've... More

We couldn’t come to Maine and not visit Red’s Eats. We’ve heard about it for years and seen it mentioned on programs about lobster in Maine. We certainly were not disappointed but we personally don’t think this is the only excellent lobster roll in the state of Maine. We were there in off season (pre-Memorial Day) and there were still...

Seeing all the positive comments about the lobster rolls makes me wish I had tried that instead of Fried Clams !! My wife enjoyed her clams but I felt they were too strong and fishy for my taste. Also with the additions we had such as coleslaw, bit of cake and sodas the bill came to over $50 !! The... More

I'm so sad I'm gluten free now. I will miss you forever Red's, but don't think I'm not gonna try to bring my own rolls.

After having experienced eating at Red's, I firmly believe that in the afterlife, when we go to heaven, we are surrounded by our loved ones and holding a Red's lobster roll in our hand! It is that good! We went at the end of August, stopped there on our way from Camden to Bar Harbor. We saw the long line,... More

We were lucky to visit Red's Eats as their season was winding down in October. No line and no waiting. At $18 a pop for each lobster roll, it certainly wasn't cheap but what a delectable treat it was! Far from pedestrian, Red's Eats serves up a veritable mountain of sweet lobster on just enough roll to be legitimately classified... More

A bountiful lobster roll and fresh blueberry cake - both the BEST I've ever eaten, anywhere. Absolutely worth the wait - no matter how long the line!
