We were traveling through Maine up Route 1 and getting hungry. We found Red's Eats is one of the top rated places for lobster just a few miles up the road. The reviews were not wrong in that Red's is a great place for a Maine-style lobster roll - large serving size of extremely sweet and tender lobster. What I... More

Thank you for visiting Red's Eats! I am sorry that we were closing in a couple days and did not have the items available that we normally do, but we do not restock certain items at season's closing. I am happy that you enjoyed our signature sandwich and we hope to see you again! Best wishes! More

Midwesterner's vacationing in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, and lucky enough to get to Red's on the last day they were open this season 10/19/16, a day that will live in infamy! Well close enough anyhow. The Lobster Roll was hands down the best ever anywhere, and will definitely be a destination on our next New England adventure. Sunny and... More

All who is driving through Wiscasset knows about this place. can't miss it and you shouldn't miss it. If you are a lobster lover - that's the place for your lobster roll and nothing else. seasonal place and a great drive from Portland to Bar-Harbour or the area

Red's is not really a restaurant. It calls itself "the world's best lobster shack", an apt description. You line up forever on the sidewalk (fortunately it was one of the last sunny days of fall), order at a window, wait some more until your number is called, then take your food around the back to eat at open-air tables. And... More

Don't blink as you pass through Wiscasset, ME, because you might miss this corner food stand. This late in the season, we were lucky to find, one, that Red's was open; two, that there was no line down the block; and, three, their famous lobster roll wasn't sold out yet. It's the first time I've had lobster, and I doubt... More

We were thrilled to find Red's was still open on our recent drive through Maine...while many items on the menu were sold out for the season, they still had their famous lobster rolls and fish sandwiches. The lobster roll is just as it should be...fresh, buttery and overflowing with tail meat. It's such a treat. The haddock sandwich (grilled) includes... More

My wife and I traveled from Arizona to the New England states this fall. First time for us. We sampled lobster rolls from NYC to Bar Harbor, Maine. The Lobster Rolls at Red's Eats have no competitors. They are in a class of their own. The folks at Red's Eats pile on the lobster and the meat is the best... More
