Shaw's Fish and Lobster Wharf
Shaw’s Fish & Lobster Wharf is a salty place with old-timers eating inside upstairs, and Red Sox bedecked locals drinking and watching the game at the bar downstairs. Makes Maine feel like Massachusetts’ backyard. The roll is butter-toasted, and layered with crispy shredded iceberg lettuce that adds little taste but some crunchy texture that works (and better than Harraseeket’s fancier lettuce). There’s a healthy portion of juicy lobster dressed lightly in mayonnaise, but you can still taste that great lobster flavor strong through it. — Arthur Bovino (9/20/2010)

Authentic Maine seafood served by locals for locals
A scarcely buttered hot dog bun cradles glistening chunks of perfectly shredded, bite-size meat, nicely chilled yet not overly so, with a touch of mayo & lemon that doesn't overwhelm the lobster.
Really good fried clams
Third on our quest for the best lobster roll this year.
Good prices this year .... esp for best lobster on the coast.
