Friendly's lobster roll
Just had a lobster roll from Friendly's and it was surprisingly good.
I would not compare it to any of the dedicated lobster shacks or sea food restaurants but it's only 1/4 mile from my office and worth $15.99 I.M.H.O..
Comes with decent fries and cole. There are usually $5-10 off coupons in the newspaper or on the internet.
Anyone else give them a try?
I've also tried the Panera lobster roll which I did not like as much. It was very good bread but all claw meat which is not so tasty. $16.99.
Thanks for letting me share!
I'm no longer near a Friendly's and our Panera doesn't offer a lobster roll, but I went to a Red Lobster here (in Oregon) in December 2011 and tried a lobster roll that was quite good for somewhere in the range of $15-$18.
Like the one you tried, it wasn't as good as many others I've tried, but definitely tasty and one of the better entrees I've had at Red Lobster. I believe it was a "lobster salad" type roll, with the mayo mixed in, not a hot buttered one. By the time I went to Red Lobster again, probably five months later, it was no longer on the menu.
You my friend are a far more brave person than myself to trust Friendly's with a lobster roll!! If you don't mind me asking what state or region are you in? I'm in NJ and I haven't heard or seen anything about lobster rolls at Friendly's and there is one only a couple miles from my office.
I remember a few years ago when traveling to Maine Mc Donalds there had lobster rolls as a part of their regular menu.....I'm wondering if this is a regional thing for Friendly's.
As much as I'd love a good lobster roll right now, the Friendly's near my house is not a place I trust. It's too bad, I have very good memories of eating at Friendly's as a kid.
I might check out Panera though, see if ours has lobster rolls. mmm...
