North of Boston try the Lobster Pool. It is on the Glouceser/Rockport line. Fresh lobster - lightly dressed and a lot of lobster.

Neptune Oyster or Belle Isle: just depends on which side of the tunnel I happen to be.

best lobster roll is at Pauli's in North End. Chunks of lobster meat, lots of it, light mayo and no lettuce on a grilled hot hog bun, and is you are feeling adventurous they have a lobster sub with almost a pound of lobster meat. This has to be the biggest and best lobster roll in Boston!!!

I think Tony's Clam Shop on Wollaston Beach has an outstanding lobster roll. Last time there this summer it was $18; that's the best price for both quantity and quality I've had in the area.

I say Hook in Boston for value. But the marketplace raw bar in Mashpee for the overall win

Sullivan's in Southie. I don't know what they put in the lobster meat salad, but it's great. I wouldn't be surprised if it was crack- it's that addictive! Hahahaha!

Row 34 in the Seaport. Warm buttered lobster roll is outstanding + holds its own against the heavy hitters on the cape, north and south shores. Always a pain in the ass to get a table or bar seat though...
