Red's Eats

41 Water St.
Wiscasset, ME, United States
TEL: (207) 882-6128

This central Maine institution has been located along the Wiscasset waterfront since 1954, and before that, in nearby Boothby, beginning in 1938. The shack with the red and white awning rests next to Route 1 and specializes in lobster rolls. Orders are placed at a window from a series wall mounted menus. The restaurant has dishes like steak sandwiches and chicken nuggets, but most people order unadorned lobster rolls, which arrive overflowing in toasted, split-top buns, served with drizzle-ready drawn butter or mayo. Since there’s no indoor seating, Red’s shuts down during colder months, and remains open daily, April through September. 

Insider Tip:

Red’s is a short walk from the Musical Wonder House Museum, which opened in 1963 and specializes in music boxes.
