We had some insider information that a place we were near had the best lobster bisque, so instinctively we had to run over and try it. Charlie’s Restaurant is a small place connected to a few hotels and from the outside doesn’t look like much. We ordered some soup to go. For 8.99 we got a little more then a classic bowl sized soup. I’m not a big believer in soup only because I like subsistence and would rather chew then slurp with a straw, but this lobster bisque was amazing. It had such a great flavor and a generous helping of lobster chunks at the bottom. It was a little more watery then I had hoped but that made it easy on my stomach to consume more. I can’t remember the last time I had lobster bisque soup in general so this was a great refresher. Now I just can’t be mad when it doesn’t taste as good as Charlie’s. 8.5/10 grub points
I’m not a big breakfast person mainly because I sleep thru it, but we stopped today at Amore Breakfast/Cafe Amore for some grub before we headed outta town. I got cream cheese stuffed French toast with a side of home fries for 7.99 which was a great price. The cream cheese French toast was the perfect size. It had just the right amount of cream cheese infused in between the slices of bread and was moist enough to were I wouldn’t have had to use any syrup. The home fries were delicious as well with a nice seasoning on them and great size. The whole meal was 8/10 grub points.
We made it up to our destination which was Ogunquit Maine and it was just about dinner time. We heard good things about this place called the Lobster Pound, so we decided to eat there. Plus it was down the road from all the commotion. When we first arrived we put our names in and waited about 20 mins and then got a table. It was crowded but huge inside so wasn’t too bad. There menu was pretty simple. And if you didn’t want lobster there were plenty of options. But of course I got the lobster and two sides. What’s cool about this place was once you ordered your food you got a ticket to go pick out your lobster from a big tank. There they would weigh your lobster and determine the price based on the lobsters size. You’d get another ticket to hand to the waitress so your food can come. We also got some steamed clams for anappetizer which were amazing. Dipped in salt water and butter made it ten times better too. The lobsters came and didn’t disappoint. My first experience with main lobster and it was awesome. They crack and prepare the lobster for you so it’s easy eating. Giant claws and a great tasting tail. Usually the tails are too chewy for my liking but this was perfect. Unfortanely we are staying near a more touristy area then some places in Maine so the prices are a little much. So for 4 lobsters totaling 7.4 pounds it was 144.49! Not including drinks, sides, and the clams!! But it was a good experience picking your lobster and the atmosphere was alright. Judging only for the lobster I’d give it 8/10 grub points but overall experience 6.5/10.
So the first grub stop for lunch for me this trip had to be McDonald’s to see if they had the infamous lobster roll. Luckily a little town in New Hampshire had em!! For the price of one roll, being 8.99 and Adding a drink and fries for 2.99 more which is pretty steep for a McDonald’s meal for one. But compared to most lobster roll places isn’t that bad. I got it with out leaf and shredded lettuce cause I was going for the Luke’s lobster taste.. And I hate green food. It was fresh, cold lobster and a warm classic McDonald’s patty. There was about two claw pieces of lobster then what looked like lobster salad for the rest. The bun was very McDonald like. It was kinda stale and had sesame seeds on top. But I’d have to say the lobster did drowned out that stale bun taste. Overall I give it a solid 7.5/10 grub points, and if i was in New England again I’d have to stop at Mickey Ds and get another one.
