Thames Street Oyster House serves a traditional styled New England Lobster Roll.

The freshest chilled large succulent lobster meat I have ever had, the buns are fresh, drizzled with melted butter on one side and mayo on the other. As simple as this sandwich may sound, its taste is is certainly anything but!

The Hungry Cat’s Lobster Roll definitely can make any cat hungry! This roll is made with fresh Maine lobster with light house mayo, lemon aioli, chives, tarragon, and paprika. This roll was delicious, appetizing, and full of flavors. Every bite just makes you want to take that next bite even more!
Waterbar Restaurant from San Francisco, CA 399 The Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA
This is truly a special roll! The Waterbar served up this butter base lobster roll with natural sea salt along with old bay seasoned chips! The sea salt really gives it a bit of that crunch with every bite. This is one of my favorite rolls at the rumble for sure!
