“It was OK, just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

the people there are very nice however I wasn't moved by the food, which I felt was no more than OK. Lunch Box it is, for those of who remember from the 50's 60's and early 70's. Just was not expecting it to be so lunch box-ish! the menu is OK but the dogs seemed expensive especially after you add all the condiments. I didn't taste the dogs but they weren't Nathan's.

“great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

we stopped because we saw a line outside. Glad we did. Was excellent and worth the wait. Couldn't decide because everything looked so good. Got a mixture of regular and seafood. Great food. Will try to stop by again.

“No lines, nice folk, really good lobster roll!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

We had a very good meal- sides were really good, lobster roll good-
A new favorite place!. You sit at picnic tables with friendly customers- no hype, no stress, just good eating.

“Really top notch lobster rolls!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

I was glad to see the reviews of Larson's Lunch Box. It so happens that my husband, Maine and NY landscape photographer Harvey Spears, took this iconic shot in 2009 when we ate there, and we are both happy to see it get around. Larson's is truly a Maine experience, and I urge anyone who hasn't been there to do so. Be sure to check the hours in advance. We may be going back when we head up to Maine over Labor Day, and hope to see you there!
