Roy Moore Lobster Co. 

It’s harder than one might think to get a lobster dinner just right, even here on the North Shore— too many places that should know better overcook these divine crustaceans. Despite—or perhaps because of—the high volume, Roy Moore gets it right every time. Lobsters are continually steamed to perfection, so there is seldom a wait—and the tiny outdoor deck with communal seating only adds to the charm. Extras are few, so bring your own lobster crackers and alcoholic drinks.

Woodman’s of Essex

On a summer weekend, the wait for one of Woodman’s generously sized beauties can last an hour or more, so stop by in the off-season to enjoy a boiled lobster with drawn butter.
