There's often a line for the specialty lobster rolls at this long-standing red shack with a patio.- Google
"Best lobster rolls in Maine."
"The lobster meat--and there is a lot of it--is served cold and plain."

Eating MANY lobster rolls during our 1 week vacation through Maine, Red's was by far the best. The scallops - they were fantastic! The fried zucchini strips - terrific! The wait in line - well worth it!

This is the absolute best lobster roll on the planet. Long wait time? Yes. Every time I go it's nearly an hour in line. They bring you nice cold water with lemon while you wait. Worth the wait? Yes. Over a pound of lobster in each roll. Fresh and cold on a toasted bun. With hot butter or cold mayo or both. Pricy? Considering you get over a pound of lobster, not really. Do yourself a favor and stop by for a dining treat you won't soon forget.

Absolutely worth the wait! The best of the lobster rolls I've had on my trip through Maine. They are HUGE so come hungry or plan to share. The butter on the side is the best!! Everything else they were serving looked and smelled amazing as well. Would definitely go back again if I get the chance. The wait was very long but we expected it, so not a big deal. Definitely recommend this place!!!

The long wait is done on purpose. This is so that you are famished when you finally get your cold lobster shoved into a toasted bun. People say that the lobster rolls from here are the "best in Maine" - it's pure hype and nothing but. For $40 we got two lobster rolls with cold lobster, a side of awful onion rings, and a container of an awful mixture of butter and oil. The eating area is cheap in every aspect, cramped, and they want you to eat their expensive food and leave so that some other idiot can take your place.

Line was so long (which I expected) but the food wasn't worth the wait. It was still good but nothing special. I did it to do it but I wouldn't wait on that line again.

Superb friendly staff and a fun atmosphere. I get the histpry of this place. However, the "outstanding" fish and chips was not very good. The fish was soggy with grease and very brown. We waited 30-45 minutes to get 2 fried fish dinners that cost us more than a nice sit down meal somewhere else. So over-hyped and disappointing. ,

We first stopped here 2 years ago and have been talking about it ever since. We made sure to stop into Reds this year on our way through Maine, and it lived up to the expectation. The lobster is absolutely amazing and the amount you get is worth the money. The wait is long, but it's fun listening to everyone talk about the anticipation of the meal to come. The eating area is small but there is seems to be enough space for everyone to sit, and by the time you are waiting for your food, the others are finishing theirs. The quote on the side by Red seems to sum up the experience" You can feed anyone once and make them happy, but when they come back for more, you've done something right." (paraphrased) In my opinion, Red has done something very right, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is wanting an amazing lobster experience.
