Top Picks for Best Lobsters Rolls in Massachusetts, Year-Round

Once the colder New England weather arrives, it's like all the good lobster rolls go into hibernation.

A silly rationale, of course, as it is obviously the myriad local seafood shack and restaurants that close for the off season. As the summer brings virtually endless choices for great lobster rolls, the winter often puts a deep freeze on this popular local dish's availability.

Not all hope is lost, however, as some phenomenal lobster rolls can be found during the off season. While traveling Massachusetts, for example, two informal roadside shacks come to the rescue with tasty lobster rolls that have lobster meat packed to the gills within a tasty roll and with little to an acceptably moderate amount of mayo.

Kelly's Roast Beef at Revere Beach (and several suburban Boston locations), and Wood's Seafood at Plymouth Harbor in Plymouth make exceptional lobster rolls, year-round. While Kelly's is best known for its roast beef, they might just make the best lobster roll of the two, but Wood's is certainly not far behind!

If you dine out with someone that doesn't like lobster rolls and you anticipate respectful or infantile resistance, don't fear: Wood's has an extensive seafood menu -- including full lobster dinners -- while Kelly's, in addition to roast beef and lobster rolls, serves up fabulous clam plates,  fish and chips, New England clam chowder, salads, burgers, hot dogs, and various other sandwiches and wraps.

If you know of any Massachusetts destinations with great lobster rolls -- or anywhere else in New England, for that matter -- please use the comment box to share your favorites.

Editor's note: before embarking on a trip to the Kelly's Roast Beef or Wood's, please call to ensure they are open -- although with Kelly's at Revere Beach, it is always a good bet that they are open until the wee hours of the morning!
