My family and I were shocked that this place that we love for its lobster rolls now serves these sandwiches without any of the best lobster meat in them. They say on all of the signs that they use the meat of two 1 pound lobsters in each roll. Unfortunately none of the 4 lobster rolls we ordered at more than $17.00 each had any of the best lobster meat. They had the small flabby claws, and the little bits from the tiny (thinner than a straw) lobster legs (which are the least expensive and least tender pieces). No tail meat, no knuckle meat and not even a few meaty claws from a nice big lobster to make up in part for the removal of the best parts. The parts of the lobster they serve are the cheaper parts so they are cutting back on their cost but still charging a lot for the sandwiches. This place was such a great local institution. What a shame they are cutting corners to make more money. I will not bring people back there until I hear that they have gone back to their former quality standards. Hopefully they will smarten up and not take us consumers for granted. There are other places to buy a lobster roll around Boston including a gourmet lobster roll food truck I just read about that is like the amazing one in DC. By the way, if you want a great lobster roll in Maine, try Reds in Wiscasset. Worth the wait in line.
