Linda Bean's Perfect Maine Lobster Roll

I was quite disappointed in the lobster roll. It lacked lobster tail meat. It was totally comprised of tasteless claw meat. I mean it was a good portion of an inferior product. The service was great, but the roll was very weak. Maybe it was the end of the night and they were out of the tail meat . Great atmosphere. Fairly priced. I guess you get what you pay for.

We just tried Linda Beans for the first time. We almost didn't because of the mixed reviews. The Lobster Roll and the claw lobster salad were both really good. We had the oysters for a starter and they were huge and tasty as well. We usually eat at Bostons when we want Lobster. Both our meals were on equal to those same entrees at Bostons. The lobster whole was a bit pricey in comparison. The service was very good. We were able to enjoy sitting ourtside with our little Yorkie. All in all it was a good experience and we will go back again.

I ordered soup and small lobster roll. The food was ok (the rolls seemed like the quality could be better)--it was the typical hot dog bun, the ones you can leave at room temp for a few months and will still be soft. The soup was really good. The staff seemed to not like their job; some of them were abrupt and had the attitude of just order your food and go away. If the staff was more professional, this place would do very well.....

friday night-08/12/11 several friends, including myself, stopped by 9:30pm .well it closed doors at-10:15pm. We were rushed. Anyway, the bun was not buttered. No mayo, we had to ask for it; no lettuce. For that pricy item a little prep service woud be great. All was not to impressive.

I wasn't raised on lobster or anything but I love lobster and Linda Beans wasn't bad! I liked the pause for claws because you just get lobster claw meat without having to deal with the shell. And their clam chowder is so thick and creamy and delicious. They are a bit pricey though, but I do enjoy the fast service.

Very disappointing lunch. It breaks my heart to write this review, as I want this little restaurant to succeed. Enough that I actually called the CEO...a very nice guy.... in Maine, to tell him of the problems I saw. I am from Cape Cod, and was brought up on lobster. I know what it can be at it's best. And I now live in Los Angeles, and have seen how lobster meat can "travel" well, IF it is prepared properly at the source. My lobster salad at Linda Bean's "Perfect" restaurant was a disappointment. To begin with, it had no tail meat at all. The claw meat had little taste of lobster, since it seems to have been shipped in some sort of pickling brine or something. This reduced the size of the intact claw meat to about a 1.5 inch size. I am sure that the lobstermen are not harvesting illegal lobsters, so I can only assume the processing is doing something negative to the meat. The CEO told me that Linda has an agenda beyond serving food at her restaurant to make a profit and franchise her concept, but further wants to single-handedly save the Maine lobster industry that is presently struggling. If that is the case, she is going about it the wrong way. Bring the BEST that lobster can be to adoring audiences, and she will succeed at both her goals. Try and pass off a product of inferior quality, and she will fail at both. :(
