“The Best Crab Rolls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We always stop for Larson's crab rolls at this old fashioned lunch stand (hours extend 11 AM to 7PM. Closed Wed.). The very generous serving of sweet crab with just the right amount of mayo on a buttered, toasted bun means that we have finally arrived in Damariscotta. Haddock chowder is good too. The staff is very friendly and helpful--they even provide water and biscuits for dogs. Larson's also sponsors a lobster roll fund raiser for the local food pantry. all in all, a local business we like to support.

“Tasty, Quick and Satisfying”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Every vacation we stop at Larson's on the way back from Pemaquid Light and are delighted with their food. We always get different things on their menu and have yet to be disappointed. Fairly priced but always good. We always hit it in August but I don't know what you would do if it was raining and don't live nearby since the seating is outdoor uncovered picnic tables and the facilities are a portable potty. I don't mean to sound negative because the food is always worth the stop.

“Lobster rolls that are better than that place down the street...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Open "three seasons", Larson's has kept its good food even through a couple of different owners. The signature lobster roll is meatier than what you find at most other "well known" places on the midcoast. Their crab roll features sweet, fresh-picked meat. They are a cash shop, so be prepared.

“Delicious lobster rolls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

This roadside stand with picnic tables was the perfect stop for a delicious lobster roll on a great traditional toasted Maine hot dog bun. There were large pieces of claw meat although I prefer my roll without quite as much mayo/dressing. The haddock chowder was fine but I prefer lobster or clam. The side dishes we ordered--potato salad, Asian pasta, and black bean were fair but nothing special. I'd recommend this for the big pieces of lobster and the great location in Damariscotta.
