I spent several months looking for the best lobster roll in the DC area. While I only got through 8 locations, this was my favorite by far, including the one in downtown DC. The meat is meaty, not over-seasoned, I prefer the cold mayo version....More

Small venue with big flavor. I tried the crab roll first only because I was in Maryland. It was small but quite tasty. Well I was not full and could not wait for the next adventure so the Lobster Roll it had to be. Scrumptious!...More

We had the seafood trio (lobster, crab meat and shrimp) all served on half of a hot dog bun. All we fresh and tasty. For the portion served believe it was too expensive.

I had heard this was the place to go when in Bethesda. What I did not know that eating here would break the bank. We ordered three rolls, three drinks, two bags of chips and the total was $72.00. Yikes! We expected the rolls to...More

There are tables with benches outside. There is no area to eat inside. Excellent lobster rolls!

Response from Jonathan S | Reviewed this property |
It''s outside seating only. They could accommodate up to 20 people I think. Keep in mind the portions are very small and it's quite expensive. More like an appetizer or snack, than a meal.
