Get Your Lobster To Go and Dine in the Seacoasts Top Spots
Lobster is delicious. It’s hard to find someone who will deny that. But preparing and cooking the lobster is a whole different story. While most New Englanders don’t mind donning their lobster bib and digging in with their claw crackers and meat picks ready to go, preparing the messy meal isn’t for everyone. If you want to cook lobster at home, that means buying live lobsters and boiling them in the largest pot you can find, making sure you have all the right lobster eating tools, and have a tablecloth and extra napkins ready to go and don’t forget some extra large bowls for all the shells.
If that sounds like a lot of work, you could just come down to Weathervane, for a classic New England lobster roll, made with large chunks of succulent Maine lobster meat, mayonnaise and celery all served in a toasted New England style hot dog roll.
And if you come in on a Thursday, treat yourself to a double stuffed lobster roll! All of our lobster rolls come with French fries, made from locally grown Maine potatoes, cole slaw and a pickle.

Picnic in the Park
Besides numerous beaches, the Seacoast is known for its outdoorsy feel, with many parks, trails and conservation lands. On cooler days, when the ocean breeze may be too much or if you prefer to avoid the possibility of sand interfering with your delicious meal, consider visiting one of the many parks or walking trails in Maine or New Hampshire, where you can enjoy your lobster while listening to the wind rustle the trees and then head off on a scenic stroll along the coast or through the forest. Most local parks have picnic spaces or tables and are great not just for adults but children and canines alike.
