Why is Red’s roll so good? As with The Clam Shack, they deliver a generous portion of unadulterated Maine lobster meat. Their roll comes with an entire one-pound lobster’s worth of nearly intact meat. This meat is served up in a grilled, split-top bun, with mayo or butter on the side. As with The Clam Shack, the lobster meat is hand torn. Beyond lobster rolls, Red’s offer a modest menu of hamburgers, French fries, onion rings and soft drinks.
Again, it’s a takeaway so there is only modest outside seating and no alcohol is served. Several years ago a book was written about the humble but famous eatery.
