“Gotta be the best lobster roll”
Reviewed 27 October 2011

Libby's Market is about as unpretentious as eating establishments get. It is really just a counter in a convenience store. Do not let this deter you from going as you will be in for the best lobster roll ever at a decent price. You can believe all the rave reviews and the service is fast and friendly as well.

“Best Lobster Roll”
Reviewed 25 October 2011

We tried several lobster rolls during our trip to Boston and Maine, but this was BY FAR the best lobster roll we've ever had. After reading all of the great reviews, we had to try it. Libby's Market is more of a small convenient store, but they make the best lobster rolls! Make sure you get there before 6:30pm, the last order goes out around then. We were only in Brunswick for a little over 24 hours, but the lobster rolls were so good that we went there twice! We crave it all the time now, so beware! Once you've had Libby's lobster rolls, you'll always want one!

“Worth the walk”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

The restaurant we planned to eat at was closed so I checked TA, found the reviews for Libby's Market and headed over from downtown Brunswick. The lobster rolls were terrific, sweet and delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back!

“Really, it is the best lobster roll.”
Reviewed 2 October 2011

Without repeating all the other reviews that tell you how great the lobster roll here is, I will just say that if they had a lobster roll Olympics, Libby's Market would take the gold in every event that matters.
Quality of lobster: fresh and sweet.
Quantity of lobster: a lot, but not so much that you can't eat the lobster roll as a sandwich (which is what a lobster roll is, after all).
The bun: Oh my...toasted and buttered. So good. And a tasty bit of bread, not just some fleshy white vehicle for the lobster.
Before going to Libby's, I thought the best lobster roll in Maine was at the Tidal Falls Lobster Pound in Hancock. Sadly, it closed a few years ago and I've been eating "almost but not quite" ever since. Jordan's in Ellsworth is good. I found Red's Eats in Wiscasset unpalatable. It's supposed to be a sandwich. If I need a fork I consider it a failure, no matter how tasty.
Libby's is about two minutes from downtown Brunswick and if I could have their lobster roll every day I would.

“The best Lobster Roll in Maine”
Reviewed 22 September 2011

During the past 7 years we have visited Coastal Maine, and eaten at many restaurants. Last year we discovered Libby's Market. It is not your typical restaurant, being a small neighborhood market that makes and serves delicious food. We were told they made great lobster rolls. That recommendation was an understatement. Tina and Dan Libby work together to make the best lobster rolls we have had, and we have tried many highly rated places. On our last two trips to Maine, we not only ate their rolls for several lunches, but even carried them home in a cooler bag to share with our grown children, who loved them. As other reviews have said, don't go for the ambiance. They have three picnic table out next to their parking lot, and one inside the store. This years we ordered our lobster rolls to take out and had picnics in the park. It is an "off the typical path" location that provides the most delicious lobster rolls we have eaten
