I timed our trip up Route 1 so we would be near Wiscasset, around lunch time. I had heard so much about Red's Eats, that I just had to try it. That is until I saw the line and the seating so close to the road. I pulled into the lot across the street, to decide if we wanted spend that much time standing in line. We looked up and saw that we were right in front of Sprague’s Lobster shack. The line of people was far shorter, excellent view right on the water and we were not standing in a line next to the road breathing-in car exhaust (like the people across the street) They may only take cash - I did not have a charge receipt.
Many of the people eating here appeared to be more of a local crowd than over at Red’s.
There was only one person ahead of us when I ordered. I opted for a crab roll (had a lobster roll last night). Being from Maryland, I had to try it. I was not disappointed. Perfectly cooked crab piled high, with just the touch of mayo, all on fresh roll. Not sure how it could be improved! Sitting away from the road on the big spacious deck next to the water, was a great place to enjoy our meal. Sure wish this place was closer to home - I would eat here often!
