The best lobster roll on the cape, Young's Fish Market, Rock Harbor Orleans. Haven't had the lobster roll at the Barking Crab so I can't compare.

What's "naked" about a bread roll with Lobster on it?

My sister lives in the area. Visiting this summer we had takeout rolls and fried clams from Legal for a picnic on the common. Awesome lunch.

The non-naked lobster roll probably has mayo and small chunks of celery or onion. And, no they do not use Duke's mayo up north.

Yes, one of the extra items was definitely mayo. Forgot what the other was. May very well of been onion or celery just like you mentioned. I don't get lobster too often so I didn't want the extra stuff on it.

We don't care about Duke's, that's not how we do it up north.

When I went to school their, there was a restaurant called “No Name” in the harbor, everything they had was great. Especially the chowder.
Any of you know if it’s still there?
Sorry to derail

It lost its luster along the way and became more of a tourist destination. Like you, back in the late 80’s and early 90’s went a bunch of times and it was pretty cheap, not fancy and pretty good.

I would rather have just the lobster ,, bread is a side dish.

Last couple of times we went to Connecticut , we had lobster at some old restaurant ( recommended by everyone we asked ) in Hartford , a few miles from the airport.

The lobster was excellent.

All that being said , I like king crab better

Your mileage may vary

I suspect the lobster we're served in Pittsburgh has probably been frozen.
If I can’t smell saltwater I don’t order seafood. Ordering a lobster in Pittsburgh is like ordering a steak in Maine. Just doesn’t make sense.

As you may know, Barking Crab in on pilings. The department of health had closed them a many years back (and with frequency since), as the toilet flanges were leaking into the channel, right where the pick up tube was for the lobster tanks. That said, I've eaten (and drank) there many times....just a cool old place.

City seems to want it gone so they can extend the walking trails. For me, it's one of the few places left in the old fishing district that recognizable....that Seaport district has gone crazy with construction...

X2 on Red's in Wiscasset. Spent my summers as a kid in Dresden Mills and later, Alna.

I agree completely on the lobster, but do you think they don't have cows in Maine?

When its time for a nice piece of steak, head on up to Kittery and hit up Maine Meat. One of the few whole animal butchers that I can find in New England, and all locally sourced. Ground beef comes from one animal, and pretty much all of their steak is dry aged.

With your reasoning, a Ferrari is just a car.
Great response LOL
