Lower price on lobster.

I heard on the news that there is a glut of lobster in Maine right now and it is making the prices cheaper. Is that true? What is the best place to get lobster and lobster roll near Bar Harbor? We will be the 8/24 to 9/1. Yay! We are flying in o Bangor and driving to BR Harbor.

In Ellsworth there's the Lobster Pot, but I don't think it meets your request for "cheaper".

www.lobsterpot.com

You might be able to get a lobster roll before you even leave Bangor. Call the Friar's Bakeshop on Central Street and see if they've got their lobster rolls on the lunch menu for Friday. 207 947 3770. The place is unique, and you can also pick up some bakeshop treats for your hotel room so don't forget to pack a couple of ziploc bags! Have you ever had a maine whoopie pie?

Just so you know, I don't think it's the restaurants making all the money off of the lobsters. They are still buying at a higher rate from the middle man. It's the middle man buying cheap from the lobsterman and selling high.

To everyone who gave comments... Many thanks!!! We are not necessarily looking for cheap lobster, just good lobster. The lobster roll we ate at Reds in Wiscasset was unbelievable. If anyone knows of a place similar to that in Bar Harbor or Ellsworth....we would go there in a heartbeat!!

Again, thanks to all of you for responding!!!
