Lobster Rolls at Maine-ly Sandwiches | The Best In Town


Maine-Ly Lobster Rolls

With all the hype about the lobster rolls I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try Maine-ly Sandwiches. But the moment that I bit into the warm, “crispy-soft” butter toasted roll and that juicy, succulent lobster hit my tongue it was all over.  I had my hopes set on writing “Maine-ly” about my disappointment with this place! Though, now, all I want to do is go back.

LOBSTER ROLLS

First of all Maine-ly’s lobster rolls contain  REAL LOBSTER MEAT! I wasn’t expecting the lobster to be as fresh, soft and buttery as it was. It’s accompanying roll was simply stellar. Condiments like hot sauce and tarter sauce were available, but I couldn’t imagine covering up all those flavors.

My only gripe is the price of the lobster roll, which quite frankly could be the reason there are no prices listed  online. The half roll is $9.99 and the whole sandwich (it’s pretty huge) is $17.99. This does not include any fries or drink. I ordered the 1/2 roll, a small fry, a small drink and a whoopie pie. My total was $17.98. That SOUNDS crazy, but I wasn’t factoring in the price of lobster.

I will certainly return to Maine-ly, most likely around pay day so I am not counting my pennies and asking stupid questions like “How about I give you $5 dollars and you keep the roll but dump the lobster in my mouth?” That made me think of my favorite snippet featuring Chris Rock in the classic film “I’m gonna get you sucka”..

Sidebar: If you haven’t seen this film… you are in fact a SUCKA! 

In addition to tasty lobster rolls Maine-ly serves up other “Italian” styled sandwiches like: Spicy salami, roast beef, juicy turkey and meatball just to name a few. They also have a crab roll that looked good. Fried clams and clam strips are also an option for the true seafood enthusiast.

SWEETS

The best part about the visit were the sweet treats. Serving up the softest whoopie pies ever, how can you not resist? Never had a whoopie pie? Well, don’t go blabbing it to the world, but they will allow you to sample a mini-pie at no cost, frankly because they are sooo good they know you will buy one.. like I did..

PARKING

The parking at Maine-ly was interesting. There is a tiny lot in front where you can park for to-go orders or quick lunches, but a full parking lot in the back. Now, the lot in the back is all one way with no “around the back” exit, meaning when you pull in the only way out is to reverse and go back the way you came. Possibly difficult on a busy day but our lunch excursion parking was seamless.
