Never had a lobster roll? With some variation, it's a delightful mix of cooked, chilled lobster, mayo, lemon juice and herbs served atop a buttered grilled roll - the quintessential taste of summer. While this beachside staple is still primarily known and loved by East Coasters only, it turns out that cities nationwide are getting in on the craze by offering their own takes on the classic Maine sandwich. Check out some of our top picks for lobster rolls in seven U.S. cities in the slide show and a video of three of the country's must-try lobster rolls here.

    2. The list they provided pretty much loses all credibility by leaving Neptune Oyster off the list (B&G is a close second though), but Neptune should have been on before Belle Isle Seafood.

      There are a number of Maine restaurants that also would be required to give credibility to this list.

  2. You should come to Minneapolis and try to the Lobster roll at the Smash Schack. The best ever.

  3. Oddly, the best lobster roll I've ever had was in Las Vegas, not New England, at Lobster ME on the strip in the Miracle Mile shops. It had 1.5 lbs of lobster for just over $20, and was a million times better than a $37 roll I had in SoHo a few months ago. It's nice to know you don't have to be in Maine/Boston to get a decent lobster roll.

    1. Lobster ME on the Strip serves frozen lobster. I asked, then I went elsewhere.

  8. You really need to mention at least one place in Maine. There are dozens of great lobster rolls in the the State that invented them. I particularly like Cameron's Lobster House on the Bath Road in Brunswick on the former site of the old Bowdoin favorite, Ernie's Drive-in. Jumbo fresh lobster roll, $13.95.
