Hard to believe, in a crowded fast-food restaurant located in a strip mall, but the lobster roll here was absolutely delicious: large chunks of moist, silky, perfectly- cooked lobster in a buttery-toasted bun, with a very light touch of mayonnaise: no celery or other foreign additives: just cool succulent lobster on a buttery toasted roll: divine!
The tuna wrap special of the day was also quite good - and it was a welcome treat to order a light beer and a glass of wine to accompany this unusually tasty fast-food seafood feast.

Went for a drive in my new car and we stopped at the Beach Plum in N. Hampton NH for lunch. We split the large lobster roll, which came with chips. At $21.99 we were a little disappointed, the meat was not in chunks but kind of shredded and a bag of chips....really? For that kind of money you expect at least whole pieces of lobster. Was tasty but we have had Much better. Did have ice-cream for dessert which was good. Nice beach view across the street but not worth the $. Tourist destination for sure, which isn't a bad thing.

I guess the ice cream/ food stand has won local awards for its products...I don't get it..there are many better places...ordering is very slow and getting your order takes even longer. Food very overpriced..ice cream is a tad pricey however you do get a lot for your money. Not sure but I think they use Richardson ice cream..which isn't the best..they add fudge to their walnut fudge..yuck...
Waited in a long I
Unorganized line to order..ordered 1 dish ice cream and 1 buffalo wrap...ice cream came right out in fact they were yelling for us to pick it up at the next window while we were still paying...the sandwich on the other hand took over 15 minutes. Over $10 for wrap and bag of cheap chips?
Not your typical seafood food stand, no fried seafood or fries..kind of what u expect on this area.

Parking is bad..but convenient if you are visiting the beach across the street.
Don't wast your money..drive on and go somewhere else.

Great example of Tripadvisor going to their head. Small, lukewarm soup, overpriced, took forever to come, come on already, fine for tourist I guess, but head to Ray's or Petey's and save a few bucks for better food.

Wicked good Lobster rolls Well worth the money! My husband got the 6oz one and it was big enough for a hungry man. I got the BBQ Chicken wrap for lunch. Not spicy at all, so that is good for the heartburn. Later on we went for ice cream. The have a great selection and it was all delicious! Also, it's right across from the ocean so you can park for free in their parking lot and sit at the picnic tables, or go across the street and enjoy the view of the ocean!
