Red’s Eats Menu

The Roll of Fame

dad-rollThe late Allen Gagnon, owner of Red’s Eats for thirty-one years, is the inspiration behind the overflowing mound of sweet, chunky meat in a buttery, grilled cradle. A master cook of simple, comforting food, Gagnon added the lobster roll to his menu after sampling a disappointing version elsewhere. Gagnon served his roll with no mayo, but offered a side of butter or mayo and folks went wild. Each roll has the meat of two claws popping up from below, and a whole, split lobster tail over the top,boasting more than an entire lobster on each roll. This is lobster meat is as fresh as it can get.

“A whole lobster required concentrated effort to eat, but a lobster roll is trouble-free. It is the simplest sandwich, basically lobster meat surrounded by bread. The best lobster roll on earth is served at an extremely humble shack known as Red’s Eats. Red’s primacy is a legend among lobster lovers, who flock to it in such numbers (summer only), the wait in line can be up to an hour.”
