Maine Lobster Rolls & More

Just back from our annual "Lobster Roll" trip to Maine.
We found really good lobster rolls at the Lobsterman's Co-op in Boothbay Harbor.
Thanks to all of you who suggested this place.
The Pemaquid Lobsterman's Co-op was just a bit better however as we liked the light mayo flavor they added to the lobster rolls.
Shaws in New Harbor were the biggest rolls of all and they were good also.
Larsen's Lunch Box,who used to have real great(and huge lobster rolls)reopened this year and they were the worst rolls we had.
A bun 1/2 filled with lettuce and then made to look like heaped with lobster meat was a good trick.
Since they had the cheapest($13.95/roll)prices maybe that is why they added so much lettuce.(LOL).
I believe that all of these places have closed for the season.
Everyone has a different opinion about what the 'best'lobster roll is anyways.
We did manage to drive right by Red's in Wiscasst on the way up however.
The line at Red's was long,the traffic through Wiscasset was slow as usual,and we just didn't want the hassle.
I don't think their lobster rolls are worth the wait!
Thanks for the Sea Basket adive also!
We too now agree that their chowders are among the best we've ever had.
We also tried Karen's just North of Wiscasset on Rt. 1.
Great little diner;homemade foods and a nice local crowd.
We also had our usual gourmet dinner at the Bradley Inn at Pemaquid Point.
The food is purely gourmet but bring lots of $$$$$ as everything is ala carte.
We got to try Polly's Pancake Parlor up in Sugar Hill,N.H. thnaks to you all you told us about the place.
I have to agree that the pancakes were about the best I've ever had and the smoked meats were out-of-this-world.
We had lunch and dinner at the Mt. Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods as well.
An elegant place with 1st class food.
Both meals were great and the view was outstanding as you looked out on the Cog Railway climbing Mt. Washington.
This place is not to be missed.
We also tried the Grand Hotel in Whitefield as was mentioned by a few here but it took forever to get anyone to serve us a drink.
Several other couples at the bar left in dusgust at the slow service.
The drinks were fine but since we didn't see anyone else eating,or even attempting to eat there,we left too.
The Littleton Diner is still serving about the best breakfast around imo.
Tht homemade hash is still the best going.
