A roadside attraction with amazing seafood. Busy but ok during the week. Service was quick and good. The Lobster Roll is a mainstay but also getting a bit of a boost from the show "The Affair". Quite a nice and homey seafood experience.

Years and years of having lunch/dinner at this place and it never fails. The lobster roll, both hot and cold, is a classic. Delicious. I don't like that they charge for each soda. In my opinion, the food is expensive enough. How much could it...More

"This is where Summer begins." The Lobster Roll Restaurant, also known as "Lunch", is a nostalgic beach shack serving lunch and dinner to locals and guests from around the globe. Our critically acclaimed family restaurant serves beach-side favorites like lobster rolls, chowders, steamers, fresh seafood, chicken, burgers, sandwiches, steak and homemade pies. We also feature a full-bar, gluten-free menu, and an extensive children's menu. Our famous lobster salad is made with 100% pure cold water lobster meat, using the same recipe we created almost 50 years ago! Our lobster salad contains no imitation seafood products, no fillers, no preservatives, and no artificial flavorings. It's all about quality! We have indoor and outdoor seating amidst sand dunes, gardens of summer flowers, umbrellas, beach balls, picnic tables, and plenty of smiling faces! By popular demand, our entire menu is available for take-out. We can also cater to you!
