Mid Coast Maine Lobster Crawl starting with Red's

chuck s | Jul 9, 2002 07:11 AM

Just got back from a 5 day trip to Mid Coast where my daughter is in camp. We started with lunch rolls at Red's Eats, a must stop. I had a succulent lobster roll, straight lobster on a butter grilled roll served with butter or mayo on the side. I had a half with each. My wife had the Maine crab roll, wonderful and tasty and perhaps under appreciated because of the lobster. Then on to the Lobster Pound in Lincolnville Beach. Steamers were very good, lobster was good although it seemed smaller than it was supposed to be. My wife had the fresh (not farmed) grilled salmon special which she really enjoyed. Next day lunch at Miller's, a simple lobster pound on a dock in the most beautiful Maine cove. Excellent steamers, but I was disappointed in the lobster roll. Should have gone for the whole thing. Had a so so meal at the Waterfront in Camden. Great mussels, fair crab roll, slow service, but a wonderful view of the harbor. The next day we found ourselves in Belfast and had the best lobster experience at Young's lobster pound on the other side of the harbor. Truly amazingly fresh and delicious lobster and steamers plus a view of Acadia. We capped off that evening with a delicious crab roll at the Camden Deli.

If that wasn't enough, we stayed at the Blackberry Inn in Camden, a delightful inn with wonderful breakfasts. We also managed to hit one of the local strawberry festivals, this one was in Washington ME, for remarkable strawberry shortcake and pies. My friend thought the shortcake was the best ever.
