Who doesn’t love a lobster roll! It’s pretty classic, but wildly pricey and definitely not worth the crazy hype. Get a lobster anywhere, as long as it says the meat is fresh picked, and I guarantee it will be just as good and better worth your money.
We waited in line for an hour but it was worth it! I had a delicious lobster roll but on a bed of lettuce instead of on even the GF bread. The staff said they do share the same grill as the gluten bread and told me that without me needing to ask. So I felt that they were knowledgeable about the seriousness of celiac and cross contamination. I also heard her say to the team that this order was celiac.
All GF bread is grilled on the same cooktop as the regular bread. After standing in line for 90 min, we placed our order for lobster rolls on GF bread. When asked if celiac, I said yes. Was then told that nothing was safe for me on their menu because of cross contamination. Why advertise GF if you don't actually have anything GF?
Offers gf lobster rolls on lettuce/tomato or on local gf bread. They will change gloves and such if you have Celiac's. They do not recommend using the gf bread since they can't avoid cross contamination on their grill. very knowledgeable though.
Cross contamination is very likely as it is a little stand on the side of the street but lobster roll was very good! It is not a traditional roll as it doesn't have mayo on it and is served with drawn butter. They had three or four different types of gf bread that she said was made in Damariscotta by a lady who calls herself the Bread Lady. I tried the buttermilk bread and it was spectacular! Outdoor seating! Great location! Staff was friendly! Very pricey but it's the first lobster roll I've been able to eat on bread and actually feel full after eating.
Don't pass on this landmark eatery by if you love lobster. Very sweet staff who took extra care to wash hands, putting gf food on diff tray, and creating a lettuce bed for more than 2 claws and 2 tails of meat piled high! Husband is convinced they felt sorry for me so gave more meet than on his roll! Yum!
By far one of the best lobster rolls there is. I've had them with the gluten bun and today had it with the Gluten free local bakery bread. Good buttermilk bread to go with, well let's face it, the star of the roll, the lobster!Not sure if celiac friendly, may be some cross contamination there. It is a small shack.
