Drove out of our way to stop and try it. Def worth the wait and price. Get the lobster roll, you are basically getting and entire lobster and then some on a soft roll with a side of butter. Worth the $25. Cash only.

How can you beat a lobster roll with no filler and the equivalent of a 1 1/2 pound lobster. Hot dogs were great too and they will add anything to them you ask for. Would love to go back.
