Red's Eats, Wiscasset
The overflowing lobster rolls contain all the meat from a 1-pound lobster. In summer, a line of hungry people snakes down Main Street (U.S. 1) from the tiny red-and-white building under the big elm tree. Open mid-April into October. 207/882-6128

The Lobster Shack at Two Lights, Cape Elizabeth
