We were fortunate to drive by Red's Eats late in the afternoon on Memorial Day Weekend and see that there were only about 10 people in line, so we quickly parked and joined them. We're so glad we did. The lobster rolls were delicious, overflowing with large chunks of succulent lobster topped with warm melted butter. It doesn't get much better than that! The whoopee pies are also pretty darn good! Can't wait to return!

Leaving Boothbay Harbor, we decided to stop at Reds for the lobster rolls. Boy, am I glad we did. We had a 45 minute wait in line, but it was worth waiting. Big chunks of lobster are stuffed into the roll with no extra filler provided. We were in heaven!!

Great food....the lobster roll is plain lobster with choice of butter or mayo...not my favorite style but plenty of meat! Amazing fresh homemade Cole slaw! Superior fried scallops....worth a wait in line for!

Bragged about Reds to my friend on the way to Booth Bay. On the way home we looked forward to stopping there. Although we did not have the famous lobster we ordered fried clams. We "tried" to eat them on the way home. They were the most worst fried clams we ever had. Batter was dark brown and very thick, they stuck together, there were clam bits inside; never a whole clam. No taste of a clam at all. We threw them out. If you are going to sell fried clams, they should be edible. Will not go back.

A friend highly recommended this Lobster Shack so as we were driving toward Booth Bay we decided to get some fried clams. I know this place is known for it's lobster rolls but figured the clams had to be pretty good as well. Boy, we were so disappointed and angry, since clams are not cheap! What we received was clumps of dark greasy batter that was spongy. There were very few clams pieces hidden in the batter and what was there was very chewy. We ended up throwing the whole thing away. They were the worst fried clams I have ever had in my life and I would not recommend this place to anyone.
