Ten Best Lobster Rolls in Palm Beach County

Page 3 of 5

8. Chops Lobster Bar

This Boca Raton seafood and steak house has "lobster" in the name, so you know they have lobster done right. Here, the lobster roll is served all year long — and all day long, but you can snag one for just $15 during happy hour. It's made with fresh-steamed and lightly dressed Maine lobster, piled into a specialty roll and served with a side of "crab" — AKA Old Bay-seasoned — fries.

7. Red Zeppelin

The next time you're in the mood for an authentic Maine lobster roll, look for one of South Florida's mobile kitchens to roll through Palm Beach County. The Red Zeppelin Rockin' Lobster Roll truck specializes in lobster and serves nothing but. The crustacean-focused food truck based out of Dania Beach has been handing out some of the best lobster rolls around. The owners are a family team: Miami-born Bob Barnett and his daughter and mother, Heather Barnett and Robyn Rahman. Together, the trio rolled out their bright-red food truck late last year, selling several specialty dishes that include their own take on the famous New England-born sandwich. The sandwich is a combination of fresh steamed Maine lobster, dressed lightly and served piled into a special egg-based bun prepared just for Red Zeppelin by a local bakery. We suggest ordering it "smothered" with a topping of the house lobster bisque.
