    Sad that you chose to paywall your reviews behind the book links. I certainly don’t plan to send someone money who can already afford to eat lobster every day.

    I liked your reviews and felt they were informative, but locking them behind a graphic that says they are in your book just screams “pathetic cash grab by the already filthy rich”

  2. Boothbay Lobster Wharf has been owned by Todd Simmons for the last 8 years (maybe longer), and still is. It is fantastic! I have not tried Robinson’s Warf in Southport, but I’ll put it on the list.

  3. Thanks for a great review blog. You are a terrific writer! My wife and I are planning a 30th Anniv. trip to Boothbay in June. I was really looking forward to trying this place until I read on tripadvisor that there has been a change in owner/management, and has nose-dived. Please tell me their wrong! However, the reviews on TA are excellent for a place called Robinson’s Warf in Southport. Have you tried it yet?

  4. By reading your post it seems it must be the best Boothbay Lobster Wharf richly deserves to be considered among the best in Maine.And i love the food as you pasted:-p.

  5. LobsterGal, thanks for the review of the lobster roll at Lobster Fishermans Warf in Boothbay Harbor. I`m from RI but am now in Anderson, SC for the last 2 1/2 yrs!!! No luck getting a good Maine lobster never mind a good lobster roll here!
    I`m thinking of ordering some lobster from ME but don`t know which place is best and the cheapest?? Could you advise, please?? Boothbay Harbor places are very expensive, maybe Portland or any other areas in ME?? Somebody recommended Dock`s Seafood in Portland? 5 lobsters at 1 1/2lbs for $45. plus shipping?

    Thanks very much,


  6. I agree with you, this place should be featured somewhere. Thanks for taking the time to write this. I had a “pick your own” boiled lobster with two sides. My friend did also, but she also got the raw oysters (a shuck for a buck) and they make great margaritas to boot. A live country band also played on the deck. Would definitely recommend

  8. Thanks for the info. Bayley’s looks good, and if it’s the originator, so much the better. Not a grilled roll, though… Not like I need those calories, eh? I’ll check out Fisherman’s Grill on Urbanspoon, too. I appreciate the help!

  9. Also, Sanders Fish Market in Portsmouth, NH should be on your way down I-95 and is fantastic.

  10. Best thing to check out is on the right side of the page called “My Perfect Lobster Roll Finder”. Just enter the state and open year round and it will search for reviews in those categories. But, to save you the trouble, this time of year, I would check out Fisherman’s Grill in Portland, first choice, then Bayley’s in Scarborough, not far away and Mac’s Downeast Seafood in Auburn is also good. Enjoy, let me know what you think!

  11. Hey Lobster Gal — I’m enlightened and entertained by your blog. I’m an expat American living in Vancouver, British Columbia. I’m going to be on a road trip from Montreal down the U.S. East Coast to visit my aging, ailing mom in Maryland next week. Maine is one of the two U.S. states I have never set foot in, so I’m gonna divert east and tick that off my “must-do-someday” list. And I gotta have a lobster roll. I grew up in Maryland eating crabcakes, but I’ve never had New England’s signature shellfish dish. This is where I need your advice.

    Most of the lobster roll places seem like small, seasonally closed joints. I was going to try Red’s, just for the famous factor (read your lukewarm review of it) but I can’t tell if it’s open. Ditto for some of the other ones you tout, such as Muscongus. I liked what you wrote about Boothbay, but it’s a long diversion for a meal. If you were a manic traveler who likes to do madcap things like search out good regional food, where would YOU go in southern Maine for a worthy lobster roll that’s open at this time of year? I have a GPS and I am a fearless traveler, so I can reach most anywhere. But looking at the road to Boothbay, it reminds me of the “necks” along the Patuxent River in southern Maryland that took forever to reach. If you’re so inclined, you can e-mail at or just leave a reply comment on this post. I’ll check back. Thanks in advance.
