      Great list! Can't go wrong with any of them.

        Definitely Red’s Easts in Wiscasset – it lives up to the hype and is well worth the wait time. The lobster to bun ratio is perfect and the side of drawn butter puts this over the top! Order a side of onion rings and a whoopie pie for the complete meal experience! ;-)

        great list!! add Chauncey Creek in Kittery Point, maybe the prettiest, and great pie.

        Another for Red's. Hey, if you're willing to go somewhere OTHER than Red's, just remember........You can get a lobster roll at McDonald's. That doesn't make it good. ;-)

          There are many great lobster rolls in Maine, one needn't stoop to McD's or wait in line for Red's.
