My husband and I were in Wisasset the third week of June and had supper at Red's Eats. We waited about 45 minutes in line, but when we got our lobster rolls we felt that it was well worth the wait. The lobster rolls were piled high with delicious sweet lobster on a buttered grilled bun. They really were the best lobster rolls we tried during our week in Maine.
The staff at Red's was very friendly and during our wait they brought out ice water for everyone in line and even gave me an umbrella to help shade us while we waited. They were friendly when they took our order, checked to make sure that our meals were ok and made sure tables were cleaned quickly for the next guests. Their dining area isn't large, but we had no problem getting a nice clean table after we ordered our food.
I would definitely recommend Red's Eats.

This is less of a restaurant and more of a shack, but don't let that discourage you. This was the best lobster roll we tasted in all of ME! It was fresh, delicious, and plentiful. I would definitely recommend going out of the way to Red's Eats.

Red's is about as basic as a takeout restaurant can be. It is a tiny little place with outside eating area on a tiny deck. But the lobster roll is marvelous. They load the roll with so much fresh lobster it is difficult to consume it all. Now it is not cheap but it so worth the wait and the $. The line moves slowly but the staff is friendly and gets an amazing amount of food moved in this small space.

After standing on line for an hour I was expecting something amazing. The lobster roll did not disappoint!!! Huge portion of lobster, very fresh, very sweet. They were out of clams, so we tried the scallops. Sorry to say they had way too much batter/breading. I peeled it all off because the scallops themselves very good. My advice. Just get the lobster roll! Amazingly good.

Waited for over an hour in the blazing hot sun in anticipation... Service is very slow, could use a pick up window to move things along, very friendly cashier though. Unfortunately not worth the wait. Basic fried food, not a ton of flavor and the lobster roll had a huge mound of meat but not really seasoned or very flavorful. Cash only sign could be more obvious also.
