We’re On A (Lobster) Roll
Hot & Cold
With so many waterfront dining options in Newport, eating a lobster roll is a must! In the event that you’re not sure where to go, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites. There are a few things you must know. Firstly, are you allergic to seafood? If so, stay away! We have lovely friends at Newport Hospital, but that’s not where you want to spend your vacation. Secondly, are you into warm or cold lobster rolls? Warm lobster rolls are served simple, undressed if you will, with warm butter on the side. On the contrary, cold rolls are served with lobster salad. Lobster salad is typically a mix of chilled lobster meat, mayonnaise, and a blend of seasonings. So are you hot or cold? Make up your mind!
Easton’s Beach Snack Bar
One of the fantastic things about Newport is that nothing is too far. Jump on our available bikes here at the Marshall Slocum Inn and head to Easton’s beach. The Easton’s Beach Snack Bar has become known for their twin lobster rolls which pair perfectly with a cup of Del’s Lemonade.
If you weren’t able to guess by the name, Lobster Bar is a relaxed haunt serving up all kinds of seafood! Their lobster roll is served with classic potato chips, warm or cold, and can even come as a club wrap! If you’re really feeling grizzly, they also have a sirloin served with poached lobster as a topper. With many beers on tap including Narragansett, you can’t go wrong.
The Lawn at Castle Hill
Save the best for last! If you happen to score the prime real estate (Adirondack chairs on the lawn at Castle Hill), park yourself there. Next, order a lobster roll and Aperol spritz. You will be served lobster mixed with tarragon-crème de fraîche then topped with onion strings on a roll, with a side of kettle chips and Cole slaw. You will be craving this lobster roll in the frigid temps of February!
