Barnacle Billy’s

0.72 mi. — Perkins Cove Rd, Ogunquit, 207-646-5575

Worth braving the summer traffic for this weighty roll – neatly dressed, loaded with meat, and dusted with paprika.

Billy’s Chowder House

4.13 miles — 216 Mile Rd, Wells, 207-646-7558

Billy’s has a reputation for testing how much fresh, sweet lobster a bun can handle before splitting at the sides.


The Maine Diner

6.79 miles — 2265 Post Rd, Wells, 207-646-4441

It’s all about “the Jim Nantz” – a combo meal with a hot or cold lobster roll with a side of mind-numbingly good seafood chowder.

The Clam Shack

9.93 miles 2 Western Ave, Kennebunk, 207-967-3321

Right on the Kennebunk River, The Clam Shack’s claim to fame is piling fresh lobster meat (cooked in saltwater) onto a round, toasted yeast roll – judging from the awards it’s racked up, no one seems to mind.

The Kennebunk Inn

10.03 miles — 45 Main St, Kennebunk, 207-985-3351

At this downtown Kennebunk gem (also famous for their lobster pot pie), freshly made mayonnaise elevates a pound of lobster meat, and the bun is griddled in tasty sea-salt compound butter.
