For years, I subscribed to Yankee Magazine and often read about Lobster Rolls. It seemed that every so often, Yankee did an article featuring the best places in Maine for Lobster Rolls and other lobster cuisine.
I wondered: What exactly IS a Lobster Roll? I found out when I camped in Wells, Maine.
According to Wikipedia, a lobster roll is “a sandwich native to New England made of lobster meat served on a grilled hot dog style bun with the opening on the top rather than the side. The filling may also contain butter, lemon juice, salt and black pepper.”
A local at the campground recommended Fisherman’s Catch for lobster rolls.
I ordered the special which featured a lobster roll at market price, French fries and coleslaw. Market price turned out to be pricey, but hey, how often am I in Maine?
The restaurant had a cute outdoor eating area arranged around a boat, so I perched out there to enjoy my dinner.
A couple from Massachusetts joined me, and we struck up a conversation about their state. They were visiting Maine for a few days and, like me, had also decided to have the lobster roll special.
