Lunts Gateway Lobster Pound – Trenton, Maine

Lobster Roll at Lunts Gateway Lobster Pound Trenton, Maine

This place really puts the salad in lobster salad roll.  The iceberg lettuce actually comes up to the top of the bread.  I know lots of people are into lettuce on their lobster roll, I’m not, but I imagine this one would be a bit much even for the lettuce lovers.  It actually tasted like eating a salad.  The meat itself was good, tender, tasty, but there didn’t seem to be much of it.  There were large chunks of tail and claw and too much mayo.  Once I took the test bite, as is, then I got rid of the lettuce and only got a few bites with the right amount of lobster, lots of bread left.  The bread was your standard wonder type roll, barely grilled, not even a little crisp.  Not my favorite, but there is some tough competition in the MDI area.  A note about the restaurant ambiance.  I just got takeout from the restaurant, the window was closed.  This is one oddly decorated place.  It looks like a tag sale of a ton of kitchy junk, toys, chotchkies, all manner of crazy stuff.  Mind you, I don’t mean in the charming way that some places decorate with vintage kitch.  I mean genuinely cluttered and without any rhyme or reason to it that I could tell, kind of like a reformed hoarder style of decorating.  I wish I had taken a photo, but sadly, you’ll have to check it out for yourself, or not.  I notice there are no photos of the interior on their website.  I’m also noticing that the lobster roll on their website doesn’t even have any mayo, wonder which one I got.
