I am glad I chose this place to order my first lobster roll. I ordered the naked lobster and very much enjoyed how tender the sandwich was.

4 options for lobster rolls. Delicious. Sandwiches are large and fresh. The blueberry pie could not have been better. Easy to get the box lunch and find a nice spot to eat. Why waste time having a long sit down lunch at a restaurant?

WOW! Great place to pick up lunch for our Acadia National Park tour! Great assortment of fresh sandwiches with the lobster roll being a hit and the brownies were delicious!

Good place to grab a bite to eat for the road. No indoor seating. The food was very good! Don't go and not get one of their incredible brownies. They are well worth the money. We ate here twice while we were in town.

Cute little Deli. Had Lobster Rolls...very fresh and affordable! There were four choices: classic, hot, tarragon and naked. I loved the naked...just chunks of lobster in the roll. Didn't see that choice any place else. Sat on bench outside to enjoy.
