“Get the lobsta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013 via mobile

Both types of lobster rolls were awesome as was the lobster mac and cheese. My wife's softshell crab sandwich was a bit bland. Other than that it was a great lunch

“Unforgettable 2lb lobster”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013 via mobile

The 2lb lobster is a real experience, it's huge and incredibly tasty. Bear in mind that it has to be eaten by hand, with little support of a nut cracker, therefore go for it if only if you feel comfortable with that. The place is very simple, friendly and absolutely inexpensive.

Called them at 8:45 on a Friday night and asked for acres. The guy says they don't take reservations but seatings not a problem. I said we were driving over from Cambridge and we'd be there about 9:15. Fine, the guy says. We arrive at 9:15 and we are informed they close at 9. Jerks.

“Guy Fieri does it again”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

Once again we listened to Fieri's review on Dives, Drive-in's and Diners from the Food Network. He is a great salesman! Arrived early to beat the Saturday night crowds. Ordered lobster in macaroni and cheese and calamari. My husband really enjoyed the calamari because it wasn't overlooked. Came with slaw and fries. I had the lobster and Mac 'an cheese. It was Just OK. Bland cheese, overlooked macaroni and minimal amounts of lobster. Not bad but not the rave of Guy's review. $29.00 for the two meals, no drinks. We choose to sit inside, it was OK. Paper plates, plastic utensils, a real casual setting. Probably won't go back even though there was a line out the door when we left. This is not the first time that Guy's review did not pan out for us....he's a great showman.

“Triple D wasn't wrong!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

The desk clerk at our hotel recommended Yankee to us as her favourite place to go after work. She warned us that there might be a really long line to get in. Lucky for us, we got there before the rest of the crowd. I was thrilled to learn that it had been featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives - it would qualify as a dive I think, but there's nothing wrong with the food! I hadn't had a lobster roll in about 35 years and was absolutely delighted with the one I was served here. It held what seemed like a ton of fresh lobster, a soupcon of celery and only enough mayonnaise to keep it from falling apart. Delish!
