Made several stops in the New England area for lobster rolls (they were all the cold variety - Maine version). Finally found the warm lobster rolls on Cape Cod (MA version) and they were excellent! Would definitely go again.

We liked the clam chowder and lobster bisque. The fried dishes were also nice. The cooked dishes were completely bland.
