Thurston’s Lobster Pound – Bernard, Maine

Lobster Roll Thurston's Lobster Pound Bernard, Maine

Cool little lobster pound hidden back off a hidden road.  This is what you picture when you go to a lobster pound in Maine.  Steam coming out of the cooking area, very authentic.  It overlooks a lovely bay, but we went on a rainy day, which lends to the Maine ambiance, but isn’t quite as pictuesque, especially when everyone is squishing in to the indoor dining area.  It seemed a bit cut throat to get a table.  Thank goodness we arrived right before the dinner rush.  Obviously very fresh meat, large chunks of cold, nicely mayoed tail and claw.  They definitely could have used more lobster meat, it was a little skimpy.  When I moved over the meat to make an ideal meat:bread ratio, bread was left over, not ideal.  I would say that the standard hot dog roll was over grilled, crisp to the point that it was scratching the roof of my mouth with each bite.  I want to go back on a nice day to sit outside and try a lobster meal, but I wouldn’t bother with the lobster roll again, nothing special.
