Phil and Mike’s (formerly Phil the Baker) – Boothbay Harbor, Maine

Phil and Mike's Lobster Roll

A little building on the side of the road connecting Rt 1 and Boothbay beckons with a sign for $8 lobster rolls, 3 for $22.  Ah, why not, Ken was still hungry from a non hearty breakfast.  You walk in and the sign says “order at kitchen counter”.  Sure enough, the room is pretty much like walking in to someone’s kitchen.  I placed my order with the elderly gentleman at the counter.  I assume this was Phil since he asked Mike, the younger man to run my credit card.  I have to respect that a man of Phil’s age is still running the show and cranking out the lobster rolls.  The pre-made lobster roll gets pulled from the fridge and placed in the sandwich maker grill for a warm up.  Interesting technique for pre-made, really takes the overly cold edge off of a refrigerated roll and adds a nice buttery crisp to the whole thing.  This lobster roll is definitely not a looker.  It looks like shredded mayoed salad in a regular hot dog bun, not top split.  Like the way egg salad looks in a hot dog bun.  Honestly, it really wasn’t nearly as bad as it looked.  It really did have a nice fresh lobstery flavor and the sandwich maker grilling was a nice twist.  Hey, it was 8 bucks and despite its looks, it was not bad.

Weighed in at 3.9 oz.

    The only whoppi pie my daughter eats. So when I go to Boothbay I plan on orders for her. Went last week and got 2 dozen if you want a order like that call ahead or stop in ahead of the departure date. She is very happy best whoppi pie as far as her likes.

  2. Friends highly recommend your lobster rolls as “the very best”. I’ll be there this week to find out for myself. A Maine native tourist
