Best lobster roll?

Answer by:

Hi Patricia,

If lobster rolls and chowder are on your bucket list, a visit to Dave's Lobster is a must.  The menu offers both traditional cold rolls and my favourite hot buttered lobster rolls, strawberry shortcake and white fish chowder.

After enjoying a morning at the beach, make your way across the road to the Covehead Wharf where you will find one of the most beloved seasonal locations on the Island.  Richard's Fresh Seafood has a small, but mighty menu.  Their lobster rolls is a thing of beauty.  The butter toasted rolls is jam packed with huge chunks of lobster, and just the smallest amount of mayonnaise and celery. The lobster is very clearly the star of the roll at Richard's!

When it comes to lobster rolls down east, The Lobster Shack is among some of the very best on the Island. The lobster is fresh and sweet and is stuffed into a butter toasted bun and served with a side of pickles and potato chips.  The restaurant is right on the water and really adds to the Maritime experience.
