Said they have gluten free rolls, but they only have one griddle that they just “wipe down”. Didn’t feel safe enough, so didn’t end up eating here

My first lobster roll! Really delicious. GF bread was so buttery and good. Lobster was very fresh. Wish it was bigger though- pricey for a small sandwich. Staff ask if you have an allergy or if it’s a preference, then change gloves and wipe down bread toaster before preparing your roll.

Underwhelming experience. Went on a Saturday and asked about GF rolls, was told "oh, we'll have those on Monday." Opted for the option to put the seafood meat on a bed of lettuce but then you don't get any of the butter and seasoning that add to the flavor.

The best bread I have ever tasted.  I had to double check it was actually gluten free.

Walked in the snow today to get a GF lobster roll and they were out of GF buns :-(. So I got the clam chowder, and while it was ok and had a decent amount of clam pieces, it wasn't worth $10. The potatoes were a little undercooked and the soup base wasn't very creamy. Wouldn't get the soup again for that price, but wish I could have tried a lobster roll!!

And they put regular oyster crackers in my bag after we had just confirmed that the soup was truly gluten free.

The gf bun was delicious and the lobster sweet and tender. The only thing that could have made this meal better would be a gf beer.

Maybe it was my lucky day. They had GF bread and lobster roll was super. Never thought I would ever find a GF one. They wore gloves and wiped down bread toaster.

Not interested in GF customers. GF bread is out for weeks at a time. Food is good and no CC just hard to support business that does not. Are about GF customers.

GF LOBSTER BISQUE!!!

I’ve been looking for gf lobster bisque for years and finally found it! And gf clam chowder! All their rolls (lobster, shrimp, crab) can be made in GF buns that are pre-packaged. They asked if it was an allergy or preference too bc they’ll wipe a prep surface if it’s an allergy! Super nice people too!

Best lobster roll ever! Staff is knowledgeable about gluten free - they cleaned grill and changed gloves. They even brought us lobster and corn chowder to sample. Loved it!

So, no dedicated grill or anything but they do have tasty gf rolls and soups. A bit on the expensive side and they charge $2 more for gf. Also I was sad they put packages of glutenful oyster crackers in my bag...

I love lobster, but as some with a gluten intolerance (not celiac), it has left me on a constant search for a GF lobster roll. I had yet to find one, until today! I had an incredible GF lobster roll. The bread was perfect, a true feat for any restaurant trying to offer gluten free. It was moist and toasted perfectly. A lot of GF bread I have had at other sandwich places tends to be smaller than my peers that eat gluten. This was NOT the case here. The roll was as big if not bigger than my friend who ate the same roll with gluten.

I ordered the gluten free lobster roll. Best $27 I ever spent. Honestly, you need to eat this. Let them know that you're gluten free request is for an "allergy" and they'll change their gloves and prepare your order in a completely different area of the kitchen. In LOVE with the sandwhich. QUALITY!! The toasted roll they use is FANTASTIC!!! Not something you can usually say of a gfree bread. I did not get sick at all. Great experience!!! Will eat here again!!! Highest recommend!!!

My first time visiting Maine and I am SO GLAD that I could try a famous lobster roll! The gluten free roll was soft and tasty and the lobster was so fresh and delicious. The servers were knowledgeable about celiac/gluten free and my meal came out labeled as an allergy. There was a long wait to get a table, but it was worth it! I have celiac and did not get sick.

Owner’s daughter has celiac so the staff is super knowledgeable. We had to wait a bit while they cleaned the kitchen between our gluten and non-gluten sandwiches. (Yay!)

The GF bread is soft but a little tasteless. (When isn’t it?) The clam chowder is AMAZING. They use potato starch instead of flour so all the soups are GF. When was the last time you had a creamed soup?!?

We’re from out of town, but I’d be here often if I could. Myself and daughter are both celiac and neither of us got sick.
