An Iconic Maine Restaurant Is Now For Sale
It could be the end of an era for a legendary Maine dining spot that features the "World's Largest Lobster Roll"!
Many years ago, I was working at a radio station in Bath. During the summer that I lived there, I would ride my mountain bike across the Sagadahoc Bridge, into Woolwich, and I would occasionally pedal over to a place called, Taste of Maine.
This family owned restaurant has been serving up delicious seafood since 1978. They have a few claims to fame, one being a giant inflatable lobster named Larry, that sits on top of the roof, and covers about 75% of it, and the other is their claim that they serve "The World’s Largest Lobster Roll."
In a recent post, the owners acknowledged the fact that there is a new “For Sale” sign on the building, but did state that they will indeed return later this year, in the spring of 2023, for their 45th season of business.
Hopefully whoever purchases this establishment will keep a tradition going that Mainers and tourists from all over the world have been enjoying for decades!
One of the great things about Taste of Maine, is that people love to take videos of themselves attempting to polish these ridiculously huge lobster rolls off, including a Guinness World Records title holder, for "World's Largest Mouth Gape"
To give you an idea of just how long Taste of Maine has been doing their thing, we found a TV commercial that dates all the way back to 1978!
