This is the way I remember great food. Nothing fancy, just great home cooked food. Hot dogs with the skin served on a bettered, toasted bun. My wife had their chili dog and the chili was excellent. They have 1/3and 1/2 pound hamburgers cooked to...More

We have always lived this place, quintessential roadside stand with great fresh lobster and crab rolls. Cash only, understandable. Usually they are the best, but today’s lobster roll was only just fair. It’s often generous, overflowing with well-picked meat and lightly dressed. The lobster was...More

Omg such great lobster rolls. You will either have to get it to go, have a seat on the picnic tables or eat in your car but it’s certainly worth the stop. I had the traditional with the Mayo toss on a toasted roll on...More

We just had the most tender lobster roll ever at Larson’s. It is so tender because they use only the claw and knuckle meat of the lobster. Definitely worth the stop. The fried zucchini was very good too.

Oh my gosh! This place has great lobster rolls and fresh burgers. Their chowder is really good too. The owners are sweethearts. The only drawback...they are only open during the summer.
