Off the beaten path for lobster
Hi guys, will be heading to Canada/New England in Oct for a 9 day cruise on the Explorer ots, out of New Jersey with stops in Bar Harbor, Portland Maine, Boston, Halifax and St Johns NewBrunswick. Does anybody know of the best places off the beaten path that has lobster for lunch? Would like to know what is served on the menu. Have never cruised in this area before, and will also be taking lots of pictures.

The famous Union Oyster House in Boston is famous for seafood..not off the beaten path, and close to the ship.. a lunch here would be historic, as I think it's the oldest restaurant in the U.S.

Off the beaten path is good, as you sail north...

Also great lobster in the restaurant at Peggy's Cove. WOnderful setting and view. You would need a shore exclursion to Peggy's Cove from Halifax.
Well worth the trip.

I second the Peggy Cove's recommendation
