Exploring the Coastal Delights: The Lobster Roll Trail in the Kennebunks

As residents of the Kennebunks, we've been blessed to call this charming place our home. Our town is not only known for its stunning beauty and maritime heritage but also for its mouthwatering seafood cuisine, with the crown jewel being the renowned Lobster Roll. Join us as we take you on a delightful journey down the Lobster Roll Trail, sharing our favorite spots.

Living in the Kennebunks has allowed us to witness the town's captivating charm throughout the seasons. From the lazy summer days spent at the beach to the cozy winter evenings by the fireplace, our town's beauty remains unrivaled. The Lobster Roll Trail serves as a culinary homage to our coastal heritage, and we're thrilled to share our experiences with visitors and fellow residents alike.

  1. The Clam Shack: A Local Classic: The Clam Shack holds a special place in our heart. It's where Grainne had her first lobster roll as a child, and it's a tradition that has endured for decades. As residents, we can assure you that their lobster roll is a true masterpiece. The simple preparation allows the sweet, succulent flavor of the lobster to shine, and the location near the Kennebunk River adds an enchanting ambiance to the dining experience.

  2. Alisson's Restaurant: A Second Home: Alisson's Restaurant is more than just an eatery; it's like a second home to many locals, us included. Their lobster roll is a testament to the town's dedication to perfection. The marriage of tender lobster meat and just the right amount of mayo, all wrapped in a homemade bun, is pure bliss. Whenever we're craving comfort food with a side of nostalgia, Alisson's is our go-to place.

  3. The Boathouse Waterfront Hotel and Restaurant: A Culinary Escape: Living close to the Kennebunk River has its perks, and one of them is being within reach of The Boathouse Waterfront Hotel and Restaurant. It's our secret sanctuary for an indulgent lobster roll experience with a breathtaking view. The combination of fresh lobster and the tranquil setting of the river creates an ambiance that's hard to beat.

  4. Federal Jack's Restaurant and Brewpub: A Twist on Tradition: We must admit, when we first tried the Lobster BLT Roll at Federal Jack's, we were skeptical. As residents who cherishes tradition, we weren't sure how we'd feel about a modern twist on our classic lobster roll. However, one bite was all it took to win us over. The blend of flavors between the succulent lobster and crispy bacon is a match made in culinary heaven.

For residents, the Lobster Roll Trail in Kennebunkport is not just a gastronomic journey; it's a cherished part of our life. As we take visitors through this trail, we are reminded of the fond memories, the familiar faces, and the deep-rooted love we have for our town. The Lobster Roll Trail is more than just a list of eateries; it's a celebration of our coastal heritage and the flavors that bring our community together. So, as you explore this trail, we hope you'll experience the same joy and connection to the Kennebunks that we've had the privilege to enjoy. Welcome to our culinary treasure!
