Columbia Harbour House- lobster roll

I have been looking at CS and see that Columbia Harbour House serves a lobster roll. Is it any good? I've only had lobster rolls on Nantucket island and I'd be tempted to try this as I love them. Opinions from those who've tried them? Photos? Here's a pic of my favorite roll. Will I be painfully disappointed in CHH's roll?

Really? Good news and at $9.99 it's a steal.

It's really good and being a snack on the dining plan makes it even better steal. I save my snack credits for the F&W. it's totally worth it.

I've never had it, but the Disney Food Blog did a review, and the reviewer said it was good. It's from last year, so I'm not sure what may have changed. It also has a few pics that may be useful.

We don't do the DDP but a $9.99 snack is a killer deal. I'm surprised its a snack though at Harbour House.

What booth has them at F&W? I'd love to see a pic.

Thank you, thank you. Just what I was looking for.

It looks okay, a little soggy but like the author said, a decent alternative to the typical fare. I might give it a go. Worse case scenario? I'll just have to go back to Nantucket.

I just had one in August and it was really good. But even better are the lobster sliders at the crew cup lounge at YC

We've got a Saturday night with no dinner plans and you may have just solved that problem. Do I need an ADR or is it an actual lounge?

Yes, you'll be disappointed. It is way too much mayo and not very much lobster. At CHH it can be part of a CS credit meal, but it is NOT a snack credit item.

The Linda Bean Lobster Roll at F&W is at the Hops & Barley booth. We had it last year and it is much better than CHH, but doesn't compare to anything on Nantucket or in New England. It is a very good value for a snack credit, however.

I thought the roll at CHH being a snack sounded odd. We don't do the DDP anyway.

Thank you! I'll see if I can find a pic on the Disney food blog. Why oh why does there need to be so much mayo?

Found a pic. It's costs $7.50. It looks more like a hunk of lobster on a great roll. It looks better than the CHH one for sure.
