Bob's Lobster-Plum Island

On this beautiful day I headed to the North Shore with some friends. Rather than stopping at the usual places, Essex Seafood or the Clam Box, we had lunch at Bob's. Delicious lobster rolls, special today for $10.50, and the fried clams, the best I've had in quite a while.

    1. Although I think it is "Bob Lobster" - a name that should probably end up on one of those grammar websites.

      The scallops are always great there as well. My wife is always happy with the fish and chips.

      1. Bob Lobster is a hidden gem. Since we summer in Plum Island, it is a daily trip for us. Nothing says summer to me more. The lobster rolls are excellent, as are the clams. You have inspired me to take a trip up this week and see how our beloved Plum Island is hangin'! :)

        1. I love a combo of fried full bellies & oysters - so good.

          1. and for those of you who are pilots, it is coveniently located near the east end of Plum Island Aerodrome. Come by and visit us @ 2b2 !!!!! Like all the other comments about Bob's, I'll vouch for them. The food is great!

              We went to Bob's today for lunch since it was beautiful out.

              One of us had the lobster roll and I had a clam roll. Both were excellent. Clams were not greasy and I had to have help eating them the roll had so many clams. My only complaint would be the tartar sauce. It needed something. Maybe a bit of lemon juice? But all in all, it was worth the trip and definitely a do-again.
