Where are folks finding the best lobster rolls this season? Sesuit Cafe has failed miserably in portion size several times this summer. Need my fix end of August. Am doing a lobster roll crawl with my foodie friend and we are planning the route. Thanks
Mid Cape to Lower Cape all the way to P Town.....
My vote is Friendly Fisherman and Chatham Fish Pier Market. I prefer Chatham because you can spread a blanket and eat on the beach next to the parking lot.
I had 3 lobster rolls on the Cape recently...
The Raw Bar in Mashpee: stay away! Huge, but too much shredded lobster meat and zero flavor.
Moby DIck's in Wellfleet: decent size, lots of flavor, little to no shredded meat.
Friendly Fisherman: $18, good size, lots of tail meat, claws and knuckles (yum), fresh and full of flavor. My recent favorite.
thanks all..I know this goes without saying but I am seeking reviews from this summer please..thanks SOOO much..love the idea about the fish pier..never had a roll there,..MD in 'Fleet was good in the past but a tad bit tourista for me...of course I won't be going until Sept. really..CCG shared the meat at Raw Bar is frozen, hence, no flavour.
Is FF BYOB, please? I cannot recall..
My opinion is also based on recent experience from this season. I don't tend to eat too many lobster rolls out as it's so easy to make one at home to my liking and I can get double the size for the same $$$ if homemade. That said, when company HAS to have fried seafood and I want to eat a bit cleaner, the lobstah is the way to go! (And Ann, I've avoided doing so at Sesuit due to your reports. Thanks)
CCG, Jillian went to Sesuit this week and had good sized portions..my daughter has been going weekly and continues to have mediocre size portions..go figure..she loves the lobster Caesar and it's her go to spot to bring out of town friends...Sesuit always been inconsistent IMHO BUT the views are amazing, BYOB and solid raw bar.
Thanks for the updates..
