If you are looking for a delicious lobster roll then be sure to stop at Larson's Lunch Box on Business Rt 1 in Damariscotta. Their rolls are full of chunks of sweet lobster in a perfectly toasted bun. Not a lobster fan? They have crab rolls, chicken sandwiches, hot dogs and great sides including fries, fried pickles and fried zucchini.... More

Larson's has been a staple of the region for a long time. You can eat outside at picnic tables. The menu has many seafood items including a yummy lobster roll. Outstanding burgers too. I enjoy the bacon cheeseburger. This is counter service. Not too scenic as you are right on Route 1 Bypass. Opt to get takeout & picnic by... More

Such a great find! Had a lovely lunch with my husband while vacationing in New Harbor and decided to head to Damariscotta. Driving by Larson's Lunch Box was so inviting. We stopped and ordered the lobster rolls with the bean salsa and coleslaw. It was delicious and loved the picnic area next to the Lunch Box. Extra added bonus was... More

Everything looked great. We had a crab roll and a lobster roll and they were outstanding. Hamburgers and other sandwiches looked great. We really enjoyed the rolls. Some of the best we ever had. Fun casual place to eat or get take out.

I was passing through the area and was hungry, so I found this cute roadside stand with a Google search. It was SO worth the stop! I had a lobster roll with balsamic beans as a side. The lobster was chilled and tossed in Miracle Whip served on a traditional toasted split bun. It was all prepared to perfection; the... More

I stopped at Larson's for lunch. I was lucky to find space to park, the place was mobbed. The lobster roll was the best I can remember ever having anywhere. There are shade umbrellas on many of the tables, much appreciated as it was a very hot day.
