It looks like a roadside stand... Oh, wait it is. I think it's the best value if you want Lobster or Seafood rolls in the state of Maine!
Friendly and just freakin' delicious. If you want to feel like you've gone to heaven you need to try a cup of the seafood chowder. Oh my god. I would move there just for this.
Let me just say we ate there twice. Once over the weekend in mid-august and then we went back a second time to eat there again. And for me it's a seven hour drive. I can't wait to go back next summer.
I honestly can't say which is better-the lobster rolls, the Seafood rolls, or the seafood chowda. He also makes some wonderful clam cakes. Not greasy or oily. Very crisp outside with delicious clams inside. All locally caught.
Don't expect a place to sit inside. When you open the door you swear you made a mistake and walked into a restaurant kitchen but don't let that deter you. It's very clean, and well worth the wait in the small ordering area. Outside is a soda machine and some picnic tables for you to enjoy your delicious bounty. And I mean delicious!!!
My mouth is watering now just thinking about it. If you are in the Boothbay Harbor area make it a point to stop in and try this place I believe he is only a seasonal establishment so call ahead to check if he is open.
