If you want a great lobster roll go here. You get fresh lobster meat not shreds. The roll is piled full of lobster claws and tails. Also get fries for $20.50

We have been coming here to buy seafood for many years. They have a broad selection of fresh caught fish from the waters off Cape Cod. This week we purchased steamed lobsters. They were perfectly steamed and cracked to make it easier to eat. We...More
