Some big food chains have introduced lobster rolls to their menus, but there’s nothing quite like one from a local Long Island restaurant. Lobster meat soaked in butter and served on a steamed hotdog bun makes the perfect lunch or dinner on the way home from the beach over the summer. And with so many delicious lobster rolls on the island to choose from, we can imagine this was a tough one for Long Islanders to vote on. But regardless, make sure you try the Best Lobster Roll on Long Island in 2015.

2015: Long Islanders Voted The Lobster Roll – Northside Best Lobster Roll on Long Island!

The Lobster Roll – Northside
3225 Sound Ave., Riverhead. 631-369-3039. lobsterroll.com
It’s tough to beat a high-quality lobster roll, the crustacean served hot, sauteed in garlic butter, enveloped in fresh coleslaw and served alongside an equally fresh batch of French fries. Maybe you prefer this oceanic beauty cold, eagerly awaiting your lips atop a toasted bun. The Lobster Roll—with a sister spot in Amagansett—literally created the popular dish, and as they say, there’s quite simply nothing like the original. Long Islanders vote this one The Best, and if you’ve never experienced this glorious beast, do yourself a favor and head East to devour this LI gem!
