I check out menus of places before I visit and I came to Oliver's for the hot lobster roll, and it sure didn't disappoint. Instead of just a regular roll, they use a section of soft Italian bread that they cut out of the loaf. Then they slice that big piece of bread almost in half in the middle, butter and grilled up the outside, leaving the inside soft and fluffy. Then they heat up the lobster in hot butter and ladle it all into the toasted bread and OMG! It was to die for, it was exactly the way I dreamed of eating a lobster roll before my visit. The soft interior soaks up all the juices and the outside gives a hot buttery crunch. No other lobster roll I ate (and I ate many!), even came close. The martini was perfect and the oysters were pricy, but the best I have ever had (and I don't say that lightly!) Take the drive over from the hustle and bustle of Boothbay Harbor and enjoy the view and the food of Oliver's, wow to all.
