Where should I go for the best lobster roll? (Meaning the most abundant amount of lobster used, that is delicious, and not a complete tourist trap? I have read that Legal Seafoods is not the place for it)...I am staying in Back Bay, but don't mind venturing out a bit....Also, I love to eat at old, classic, locally "famous" restaurants when I travel..I am tempted to go for dinner (not much of a lunch girl), to Locke Ober...I have not seen a lot of positive feedback concerning the food, though...I know that it is expensive, but that does not bother me as long as the food, place, and service is wonderful...Thanks in advance....
A quick perusal of the board will show you the hounds are roughly split between Neptune Oyster House and B & G for lobster rolls. I've only had Neptune's (cold, w/ mayo - also offered hot, w/ drawn butter) and it was fantastic.

I would definately try Locke Ober. It's a throw-back, and is lots of fun. Dress up and get ready for an old time Boston dining experience. Interesting wine list.
