My wife and I have driven from NJ to one exit outside Rhode Island for a great lobster roll lunch. Oh yeah, obviously, we love lobster. So finding a great lobster roll close to home would put a smile on my face. I tried Mary's Fish Camp and her $23 lobster roll wasn't bad but the price will keep me from being a regular customer. My friend said that the Lobster Place had a decent one for half what Mary's charges so I gave it a try. The verdict? An acceptable lobster roll given the price. As for taste, certainly too much celery. The meat was cooked properly but was a little tough (maybe the meat was from an older or larger lobster). The roll was not a classic bun and it wasn't buttered - just OK.
I probably won't go back unless I get desperate for lobster. But it's still an OK lobster roll and I can't see how they do it in NY for the price.
