On second annual August mushroom hunting & fishing expedition through New England, added daily lobster roll to the agenda. Stopped by twice in a week for lunch with friend George at the widely acclaimed Fisnet in Blue Hill, Maine. Summary; excellent! My specifications: grilled roll, butter no mayo, lobster warm not cold. Exceeded expectations. Wonderful fried onions, minimally breaded. Service... More

For those of a certain age, your first view of the Fish Net will remind you of those iconoclastic take out shacks your parents took you when you were a kid in the early to mid 1960s. The building started as a window service joint that later added a tiny dining room. Even the washrooms are an afterthought. They are... More

Fast service for excellent lobster roll, and our regular stop for the best soft serve around. We only eat these items so can't comment on any other food items!

These are the first and best lobster rolls I have ever had, and if there is some sort of guide to the best lobster rolls in the state of Maine, I hope the Fish Net is on that list! All of the sides, from french fries to cole slaw are fantastic! It is a Blue Hill institution!!

I went here with my sister and niece who live in Blue Hill. My dog and I had just driven across the country from California and I was craving New England style seafood and lobster rolls. It was a beautiful day, and we sat outside, along with most of the crowds. The scent of freshly fried seafood was everywhere. My... More

When you want the real thing and don't need linen tablecloths or any tablecloths for that matter, this is the place to go. If you go at noon, be prepared to wait in line to order. It is worth the wait. Only the very freshest. Lobster, clams, fish. Personally my favorite is the Lobster Roll; a hot dog bun filled... More

We stopped here for a quick bite for dinner. The service was quick, employees friendly and helpful, and the lobster roll was delicious. The restroom was very clean. There are a few tables inside, but we chose to eat in our car. We would definitely go back.

This Blue Hill fixture has a large menu that covers a wide range of selections including deserts and fresh sea food. I love the scallop rolls. The double bacon cheeseburger is fantastic. I can only have one a year, but enjoy every second of the experience.

There really isn't anything bad one can say about a lobster roll...when in Maine, you've got to indulge. And the Fish Net has the best lobster rolls that we've tried. We keep going back when we're in the area...have been to no fewer than four or five restaurants to indulge in them in the Penobscot Bay Area and Fish Net... More

I took a sandwich to go, it was tasty, nothing to fancy, but if you are near by, you should visit this place. The service is good.
