No one does lobster quite like Maine, where summertime means heading to the local lobster shack for a steamed lobster or lobster roll with the fresh picked meat tossed in warm butter or mayo. At many of Maine’s best seafood eateries, lobster is pulled fresh from the sea daily; some let diners pick their own lobsters from a tank. Many offer waterfront views of working wharfs and fishing piers.
