I agree. I don't know what the "real" ones in New England are like, but I really did not like my lobster roll. WAAYYY too much mayo, which I find gross.

I think most people would be happy if Disney called it a Lobster Salad Roll. There wouldn't be any misconceptions and anybody looking for a real lobster roll would steer clear. However, Disney probably knows that no one would buy it under that name and aren't going to give up making money off those who think it's genuine!

Another New Englander here. I didn't expect it to be as good as what we would get locally, but was curious. It was terrible. It was loaded with onions!! Onions? I could not even taste the lobster. I think it was the worst thing that I have ever eaten on Disney property.

Another NE native here who loves lobster rolls. I am partial to a lobster roll with a bit of mayo and maybe a hint of celery. I tried the lobster roll at CHH last year and I agree, too much mayo and not enough lobster - no big chunks of tail meat - maybe some knuckle meat, but I liked it okay. I didn't expect what I would get up here in Maine.
That said, I did not order it this week. Instead I had my traditional tuna salad sandwich which was delicious, as always.

I thought the grilled salmon was decent. My husband makes better, but it was decent, plus it comes with rice pilaf and broccoli.

Yeah, sorry, but I have to agree with the PPs that it really wasn't very good. I would also say it was closer to a tuna sandwhich type filling (lots of mayo) than a lobster roll. It fell under that "tried it once" category...I'm glad I tried it, but I'm not planning on ordering it again. Here is what it looked like.

Add me to the list......

I went there with such anticipation to eat this. DH had gotten the Shrimp dinner, and thank goodness he did. I ate 1/2 of his meal. The Lobster Roll was not really good at all. It had lettuce, onions, and "fake" lobster, then way too much mayo which made it runny!!! The roll was stale and it was just gross! I will never order it again.
