We Taste: Boston’s Best Lobster Rolls

We've tracked down Boston's best lobster rolls

If we had a dollar for every time we were asked “where can I go to get a lobster roll” we would have many, many, many dollars by now.  It’s the quintessential New England dish that keeps people coming back for me.  The summer is an especially lobster-centric season and because we are in the business of hospitality, we take it upon ourselves to do some taste testing around the city to make sure we have our claws on the very best rolls in the city…it’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.  We’ve round up our top five below:

1.) Neptune Oyster – This tiny restaurant in the North End is big on flavor which has helped it earn an even bigger following. Neptune is especially known for it’s hot, buttered, lobster roll – making it worth the inevitable wait to grab a table or at the very least a roll to-go.

Neptune Oyster

63 Salem St, Boston, MA 02113

(617) 742-3474

2.) James Hook + Co. – Located at the cusp of the Boston waterfront, James Hook is an unassuming little fish market with some excellent outdoor seating for dining al fresco. In addition to selling their infamous lobster roll, they also serve up some of the best and freshest fish and seafood in the city.

James Hook + Co

15-17 Northern Ave Boston, MA 02210

(617) 423-5501

3.) Pauli’s – Pauli’s made a splash last summer when it introduced the U.S.S. Lobstitution, a whopping 24 ounce lobster roll that has been billed as “New England’s Largest.” True, it is a bit schticky but if you’re on the hunt for lobster than really look no more.


65 Salem St, Boston

(857) 284-7064

4.) B&G Oyster – This seafood restaurant in Boston’s quaint South End is part of the Barbara Lynch culinary empire.  Honored by Food & Wine as “America’s Best Lobster Roll” B&G delivers a whole pieces of fresh lobster on a buttered brioche that will have you giving two enthusiastic claws up.

B& G Oysters

550 Tremont st, Boston

(617) 423-0550

5.) This may be completely nepotistic but we do have to a special place in our hearts for the Lobster Roll served up at the Rooftop @ Revere. Included in Esquire magazine’s 2013 Best New Restaurants issue, Revere’s Rooftop roll is served up with seasoned onion on top and homemade chips on the side – perfectly paired with that killer view of Back Bay and the south end…
