As a ghastly specter from the nether regions...I have a developed a taste for lobster. It's a terrifying creature to behold with menacing claws that crush its foes to pieces, and hard armored shell that protects this majestic and hideous abomination from all dangers. All, that is, except a pot of boiling water.

That said, I love lobster rolls and am constantly searching high and low for the best the world has to offer. I arrived before the start of dinner, so I had to bide my time with some raw oysters ($1 each) and craft cocktails. Eventually, the bell tolled and it was time for lobster devouring. Now, for me, this are the qualities of a great lobster roll.

- meat is tender and juicy (the least bit tough or rubbery ruins it)
- meat is very-lightly dressed (if at all)
- the roll is well-buttered
- you need to be able to take a bite that contains all of the components at once

In this case, the roll fared well against the checklist. The lobster meat had dressing on the side and was just a werewolf hair undercooked. The had the flavor and consistency of corn bread and was heavily buttered and toasted. This offering was topped with fried onion strings...a dangerous move but worked well for me.

I hereby decree that the lobster roll at Ironside Fish & Oyster has made my Best Lobster Roll list. Scary stuff indeed.
