Living on the East Coast, we are known for our killer lobster rolls. You haven't truly lived until you've tried a lobster roll up in Maine, or Connecticut's own version of it. While many of the North East states are notorious for their signature lobster roll locations, New Jersey is often left out of the conversation, leaving many to wonder where to satisfy their craving in our great state!

Red's Lobster Pot (Point Pleasant, NJ)

Red's Lobster Pot features to-die-for views at their "Dockside Dining", paired with perfectly seasoned lobster rolls. What makes Red's Lobster Pot so original is how they branch away from most other lobster roll joints, and opt to serve fresh corn on the cob with their rolls rather than chips and/or coleslaw!
