Who has the best lobster roll in Maine? This debate is a tale as old as time. There are so many factors that contribute to a lobster roll's greatness. And beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Some folks prefer cold lobster tossed in mayo with chopped celery on a toasted roll. Some prefer hot lobster with butter also on a toasted roll. For me, the toasted roll in a non negotiable.

We know that Martha Stewart is a fan of Bob's Clam Hut in Kittery, Maine. She was spotted there enjoying a lobster roll with her dogs over the fourth of July weekend.

Martha recently had a friend visiting, Antoni Porowski from "Queer Eye" on Netflix. Antoni was on a quest to find the best lobster roll in the state of Maine and he found it!

He declared that the best lobster roll exists at The Clam Shack in Kennebunkport, Maine.


It was so exciting to have Antoni visit The Clam Shack! Not only does he have "star power" he is just an all around delightful human. The owner of The Clam Shack, Steve Kingston, told News Center Maine revealed their secret to the perfect lobster roll. It is using small, new shell lobster. It's sweet, tender, and a little bit salty.

Want to know the best part? You can CUSTOMIZE YOUR ROLL at The Clam Shack. Do you like your roll cold with mayo? You can have it! Are you more of a warm with butter kind of person? Ask and you shall receive! Do you want yours with mayo AND butter because you simply can't decide? I've never heard of that in my life but apparently that's how Antoni wanted his. He proudly rocked the pin they give out with a mayo and butter lobster roll order.

 Congrats to The Clam Shack for holding this prestigious title. It is well deserved. :)
