For those who might have been turned off by the food-truck setting of this business in older posts, good news! Joe has opened an indoor, sitting-down restaurant that serves the same great lobster rolls and now an expanded menu. It is in more or less...More

What a great place to grab a lobster roll for around $15.00 right now. Joe is very creative with different flavored mayonaise. He also makes a lobster BLT that I just cant get enough of. Fresh lobsters to go and you can get a burger...More

Joe Lane, great find. Look in the back street, or ask if you don't know D'scotta. One of the best Lobster Rolls (choose your mayo: cilantro/lime, or aioli !), and the Crabster (yes, Crab+Lob) Roll was SUPER. We'll be back, for sure.

Walk around the theater corner and look for Joe's lobster truck/set up. He is fun, the lobster is fresh and the roll is terrific - and much more fairly priced.

Best lobster roll in Midcoast Maine! I tried the BEST with just butter. My husband had Cilantro lime mayo on his, they are excellent!
