A little tricky to find this kiosk, but it is down by the pier. The lobster roll is really to die for.

We have been going to the Muvbox (we call it the lobster shack) for several years. We loved it at first as we would bring our own wine in a sac, with some plastic cups, and sit by the river on the picnic tables to...More

The chowder was good, the lobster roll was average... Wasn't a bad experience, but wouldn't go out of my way to return. Great location, plenty of outdoor seating, different than your usual Old Port restaurants.

We went there specifically looking for lobster rolls and we were not disappointed. Maybe they are a little pricey at $14.95 but they are worth it. Full of lobster meat. Not too much mayo or sauce. They were delicious.
