Where to Order Lobster Rolls Around Landlocked Atlanta

From Maine and Connecticut-style to ATL takes, the lobster roll trends on Atlanta restaurant menus during the summer

View as Map

As a landlocked city, Atlantans are not accustomed to having boat loads of Maine lobster at the ready and served at nearly every seafood restaurant in town. But for those Atlanta-area restaurants making the effort to bring these crustaceans into ATL, expect some creative twists on the classic New England sandwich. The lobster roll may be pricier here than up North, but consider shelling out for the sandwiches at these restaurants around Atlanta.
