We ordered through Ubereats and got the food really fast. The tots were delicious. The bread was good. The lobster roll itself was meh. I got the Connecticut one with butter. It wasn’t warm at all. Not sure if it was supposed to be. I haven’t had a roll in 6+ years.

My child got a gluten grilled cheese which was on the fluffiest bread I’ve seen in ages and was also yummy, not that I’d know.

I was walking by and saw their sign for Gluten Free menu so I gave it a try. The tatter tots are even made in a separate fryer so they’re gluten-free as well. They use a gf bun which was pretty good. This place is very pricey but the taste was good. I didn’t have any issues.

I was so excited to eat here that I didn't even look at the price before I ordered. They serve lobster rolrolls, and all the fillings are gluten free. $33 for a lobster roll with tator tots. They forgot my bottle of water in my to-go order. And the food wasn't even good. It was a microwaved Udi roll, not even toasted with butter, and the lobster was chewy and also not buttery (I got the Connecticut Roll, which supposedly has herbed butter). The tots were mushy. I was so bummed. No need to go back.

I was at a convention nearby and wanted to see if I could get good seafood. This place popped up on a search. I decided to try it even though there was no gluten free rating. While they have no gluten free lobster roll options, over a couple of days I had all three of their soups, which are gluten free (Lobster bisque, clam chowder, and crab soup). They also have lobster salad and shrimp salad, which are gluten free. I asked on my initial visit if their soups were gluten free, assuming they weren't but the clerk said it was. On the second visit, I asked about the crab soup being gluten free, and the cashier didn't know, but found out for me, and it was, so I had a bowl!

I didn't verify how much they work to avoid cross-contamination, so if you are very sensitive, you would need to check that out, but this is a place you should definitely try if you are nearby.
