Monahan’s Lobster Roll

Consistency, I think, is really key to calling a place good.  You need to know what to expect when you go to a spot or recommend it to someone.  This spot failed to achieve consistency even in the three lobster rolls at my table.  It looked quite promising upon arrival, a little shack with picnic tables by the sea, great view and a decent line waiting for food.   One red flag was the giant sign billing themselves as “The most affordable lobster roll in Rhode Island”.  At $15, that doesn’t seem accurate or enticing, really. 

Their sign and the gal at the counter said that the meat was fresh picked and cooked in salt water, always key to great lobster.  They have the option of hot or cold, so we ordered one of each.  They looked really similar, the meat tasted good and fresh.  I think the cold tasted better than the hot.  The weird part was that the three lobster rolls, two cold and one hot all looked really inconsistent.  Lots of tiny shreds topped with two whole claws on one, chopped up chunks in another and a little of both in the third.   Bread was butter grilled on the inside.  Overall, mine was fine, but I can’t say what you might get on a visit.  Skip the onion rings, no good, the whole onion came out on first bite.

Weighed in at 6.1 oz.
