Growing up on the Bay of Fundy I've had more than my share of lobster but that did not prepare me for my meal. Drove past the sign of Phil and Mike's that was advertising $9.99 lobster rolls and assumed they would be minuscule-WRONG!! We...More

The sign says $9.95 lobster roll. Looks clean, why not? Stepping inside is like entering someone's very clean kitchen, and the menu is simple, straightforward, and reasonably priced. Everyone has an opinion about what a lobster roll should be...if you lose your pretentions and can...More

For only $9.99 we got these freshly made scrumptious lobster filled grilled buttered rolls from a roadside stand. There was a bit of a wait as Mike took the orders, cooked and served. The wait was well worth it!

We found this piece of heaven on earth a few years ago by chance and have been returning ever since. Mike opens at 11:00am and closes when he has sold out which can be early afternoon. You cannot beat the $9.95 price for his lobster...More

First let me say this is now called Phil & Mikes. Mike opened this year on Father's Day weekend. You step directly into his immaculate, spotless kitchen to place your order & pay. The $9.95 lobster roll contains chopped/shredded lobster & is packed on a...More

Stayed here for a week and just found it on the way out of town. Worth the stop in or out. But making the trip will save you half what they charge in Boothbay.

This is a basic lobster roll shack on Route 27 just north of Boothbay Harbor with no dining room seating or wait staff. They offer a great lobster roll at just $9.95. It’s easy to understand why this place is so so busy. The lobster...More

We stopped here on our way out to pick up our last lobster roll for lunch before heading home. Very good, but also different. The lobster meat is shredded, but packed in to the roll so you get plenty. They are closed on Tuesday, open...More
