The results are in: We scoured the coast—and filled our paper plates—to find the seaside dives with the tastiest dishes, from fried shrimp to fish-and-chips.
This waterfront general store makes an immense version of the classic New England lobster roll—chilled meat in a buttered, toasted, split-top bun. You can eat it there, among the postcards and rental DVDs, or cross the street and gaze out over the harbor.
What you’ll shell out: $9.99
