On our way up to Kennebunport for the weekend, we stopped in Portland for lunch. Located on a fence between Long Wharf and the Portland Lobster Company on Commercial Street in the Old Port, people put padlocks (love locks) to symbolize their love for one another.
We order inside at the counter and they give us a lobster buzzer. We scope out seats – while it’s sunny outside, there is a cool breeze, but in the end we decided it would be a waste not to eat outside.
The lobster roll was pretty good. What threw me off is that the lobster meat was cold but they pour warm butter over it, so if you don’t eat the lobster roll quickly, the butter starts to congeal. The Portland Phoenix voted Portland Lobster Company’s lobster roll the best lobster roll in 2014. In addition to lobster they have a good selection of fried food, salads and wraps. And don’t forget about dessert! Try the locally made blueberry pie.
