Red'sEats did not disappoint in regards to lobster roll...lobster roll jam packed with greater than 1 lobster in each roll. Onion rings were not piping hot and a tad soggy....Choice of drawn butter or mayonnaise for the lobster on a grilled hot dog roll. Outside tables limit the seating available. Wait time being early in the season was only 30 minutes....would recommend port-a-potty for guests given wait times can certainly exceed 1 hr in summer months. Public restroom is about 1/2 mile away.

Drove from Long Island, NY to get the lobster rolls and it was totally worth it! Some of the best lobster I have eaten. Nice and fresh. Got 2 of them because they were so good. Waiting on line the workers offer cups of water and samples of sweet potato fries. Amazing food and service!!! Can't wait to go back.

Excellent, loaded lobster rolls served overflowing the roll. Definitely the largest I've eaten but the price is high (for Maine) but the value is there. There is no celery or filler and no mayo. When you order they will give you mayo and drawn butter on the side to mix on your own. For me the butter is good, I sued no mayo. They have other roadside stand options.

We've passed Reds several times on our scenic route to Boothbay and Bar Harbor over the years. This time we said to each other... we are going to find out why there is always such a line at the window. Wow, did we ever find out. At first we split a lobster roll but we ordered another one as well!! It was 100% pure fresh lobster...nothing else, and so fresh. If your near Wiscasset on your travels ( or not near ) it definitely is worth the trip to Red's!!

I go to Reds Eats every time I'm visiting my son who lives near Wiscasset. Not only are their lobster rolls to die for, the owners and staff are very accommodating. I've been standing in a long line when they pass out fresh fried shrimp to the customers, cold ice water, and umbrellas if needed! The line is long but it is well worth it. There is outdoor seating in the back and even though the line is long, turnover is just fast enough that we have never had trouble getting a table once we get our food.
