After reading an article in CT magazine, I decided to try this place out. I checked out their website and watched their video on making the perfect lobster roll. It made me really want one. It looked like they used a whole lobster in the roll.
So, on Sunday I went with my buddy. We both got the lobster roll, but I was a bit disappointed. They only used claw and knuckle meat, no tail meat as shown in the video. I probably should have asked when I first got the roll, but I didn't.
It tasted very good, the French fries had a light coating, were very crisp and tastey, and the beer battered onion rings were very good and had a slight hint of beer tatste to them.
I think if I go next time, I will ask about whether they include tail meat. If they don't I won't get it again. There are other places around that serve tail and claw rolls.
