Stopped and grabbed a lobster roll box lunch from here. I got the tarragon mayo lobster roll. I've had better. The sandwich was small and I couldn't taste any mayo, let alone tarragon mayo. Get your lobster roll someplace else.

We searched high and low for a plain bagel and got one here. Also enjoyed the naked lobster roll because I HATE mayo and everyone else seems to use mayo.

My husband and I stopped to get a boxed lunch after we asked a park ranger where we should go, ugh we shouldn't have listened. We paid $30 for 2 turkey and cheese sandwiches, 2 small bags of greasy lays potato chips, 2 cookies, and 2 MINI bottles of water. What??? We should have gone to a restaurant and actually... More

I should have paid attention to the reviews. I found the staff unfriendly and they got both of our orders wrong. Needless to say we were disappointed.

Stopped in the deli to grab a quick bagel and cream cheese. The gentleman who took our order was nice enough however he dumped our bagel in a bag and sent us on our way. Once we were outside on a bench and opened up our bag, our request for a plain bagel with cream cheese, not toasted, cut in... More

Sorry about the title...but I was so happy to find a place that had lobster rolls without mayo on it. This place offers a lobster roll plain (naked), and hot with butter. It's not a huge lobster roll, but I could have gone back numerous times to have a naked roll. The service was excellent, and the food tasted fresh.... More

Wanted a quality lunch to go and was thinking Lobster Roll. Pleased to find six varieties. More than a few folks want the option of no mayonnaise and they have it. I chose the Classic. It was excellent. I also had a side of fresh fruit. I was in and out of there in 5 minutes with a delicious, fresh,... More

This review is actually for their sister spot, the Pink Pastry Shop. I heard that you have to try a Whoopie Pie while in Maine so since this place had them calling me from the window, I figured I would pop in and try it there! It was moist with a delicious creamy filling and everything a whoopie pie should... More

Walked in and found the menu to be extensive. I ordered a chicken avocado ranch wrap. The chicken was real white meat that they had cooked and cubed and it was a generous portion. The wrap came with a pickle spear and bag of chips. I also ordered a side of pasta salad which was outstanding. I took my lunch... More
