Lobstah On A Roll is a small counter-service spot that, judging by its name, apparently dreamt of being one of those stalls in Faneuil Hall and had to settle for a location in a South End row house instead. Despite the ever-annoying spelling of the Boston accent, it makes a really good lobster roll - several of them in fact, available either cold with mayo or hot with butter and in a bunch of different sizes. They have things like chowder and bisque, too, but you're coming here for one of the better rolls in the city that differentiates itself with a big brioche bun.
