This is my 3rd or 4th review of this restaurant over the past 7 years or so. The first visit, mostly because of the server, was almost our last. Then we went there again the next year and were very pleased with both the service and the meal. And I believe that my most recent review expressed disappointment in the higher prices and lesser quantity of food than we had been experiencing during the previous years.
Well, we’re happy again. :) And that is because of their awesome Wednesday special, lobster roll. I am a bit snobbish about lobster roll as we always get them (and a lot of them) during our summer/ fall trips to the northern coast of Massachusetts and southern coast of Maine. I just figured that they couldn’t be any better than they are in that area, but I have been proved wrong.
A friend recommended the lobster roll, and she actually raved about it, so I had to give it a try. I was a little uncertain because the ingredients include Dijon mustard and I thought that it would overpower the delicate lobster. Nooooo. Somehow, that small amount of Dijon only served to enhance the lobster. There was just enough dressing to bind the large pieces of meat together, and a little chopped celery. It was incredible. Which is good because we will soon be permanent residents of the area and will probably not vacation in New England as much as we have been. At least I know that I will now be able to get a great lobster roll at Striper Bites!
Also, the fries were great; basic, crispy, not overly salted. Yum. And our server was very friendly and attentive. We hope to return in a few weeks!
