The other part of the story is that Estes Lobster House has become well-known not just in Vacationland, but around the world. It's an iconic landmark for so many, and the mouthwatering place to go for a large lobster special.

But as time goes by, often times restaurants, even legendary ones, change hands. And the time could be now for Estes Lobster House.
