A good lobster roll near the Kittery outlets?

I am going to the Le Creuset outlet in Kittery, ME tomorrow evening and would like to go out for lobster rolls as well. Any suggestions?

  1. Bob's Clam Hut has a decent lobster roll, actually, for a decent price. I know they've been slammed recently by many, myself included. But I was up there a few weeks ago and stopped in, and the food was better than I'd had the last time I was there. Fish-n-chips nice and fresh, crisp. Lobster roll good too. If you are willing to drive a bit farther north to Wells, Fisherman's Catch is outstanding.

      I didn't order a lobster roll, but the fried clams at Bob's a few weeks ago were the best I've had there and better than the clams earlier in the week in Ipswich and Essex. An anomaly, perhaps, but a pleasant surprise.

        Before considering Chauncey Creek for a lobster roll, I suggest you look at this thread:

      2. I highly recommend the jumbo lobster roll at Robert's Maine Grill, across the street from Bob's, on the northbound side of Rt1 near the Banana Republic/Gap outlets. It was really good and worth the $$ to upgrade from the regular. I was so awestruck by its beauty, I took a quick picture with my cell phone and emailed the manager a day later with my high praise. The onion rings were also impressive.

          BTW, Robert's is owned by the same folks who own Bob's across the street. I'm suspecting the lobster roll is probably identical, the only difference is it is served on a nice china plate in a sit-down atmosphere (nothing wrong with that, of course!).

            Thank you all for the suggestions, we wended up at Bob's and had a nice dinner, no complaints.
