Ten Best Lobster Rolls in Palm Beach County
2. Boston's on the Beach
Nothing fancy here, folks. This is simply a true, traditional, Maine-style lobster roll, with large, tender chunks of chilled meat tossed in a light mayo dressing and served in a top-slit hot dog bun. It earns a top spot on this list thanks to what is -- without a doubt -- the heartiest serving of lobster served at any Palm Beach County establishment. You can order it with fries, chips, coleslaw, or fruit. We recommend the chips. They're Cap Cod, after all.
1. Chowder Heads
This Jupiter establishment is all about choice, and believe it when they say everything on the menu is "wicked good." In addition to clam, scallop, shrimp, and oyster rolls, you can -- of course -- find the lobster roll. It's served both ways, hot or cold. The sandwich begins with an oversized, side-split specialty hot dog roll toasted on the griddle, slathered with butter, and stuffed with fresh-cooked (live lobsters are delivered up to four times each week) Maine lobster. The secret here is that there is no secret. Nothing but a touch of real Hellmann's mayonnaise, and nothing else. Order it hot and the meat is sautéed in a quick bath of unsalted butter -- simple as that. Why isn't there one closer to Palm Beach proper? Oh, wait. There's a new location opening off Okeechobee Boulevard just west of I-95 in West Palm Beach this summer, with more locations in the works. So the wait for these destination-worthy dishes (without the road trip) is over.
