A father-and-son team channels coastal Maine with kitschy decor and, more important, an authentic lobster roll that's short on mayo and long on value. If this is your child's first crustacean experience—whole juicy claw meat nestled inside a toasted, buttered bun—consider her ruined for just about anywhere else.
