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)

Foursquare Tips

  • 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.
