We’re a Lobster-Lover’s Dream

Nobody fixes lobster more ways than Ruth & Wimpys

For Ruth & Wimpys Restaurant, lobster is serious business. The lobster we serve is fresh, and we pick our own lobster meat. During summer, we keep four to five-hundred pounds of lobster in our outdoor tanks. Our menu, which lists 32 lobster combinations, includes:

  • Lobster salad
  • Lobster stew
  • Lobster roll
  • Lobster fondue
  • Lobster chowder
  • Lobster bisque
  • Lobster scampi

Neither Ruth nor Wimpy are strangers to lobstering. Both have families that go way back in Maine. They bought their restaurant in 1990. Before that, Wimpy drove semitrailers for 20 years. The two of them went cross-country by truck several times, although Ruth mostly stayed home to raise two kids.

We’re family owned and operated

Ruth and Wimpys is a great place to work. Many of our crew members have been with us for many years, and a handful have been around for over a decade. Visit our family owned and operated restaurant tonight to try our delicious seafood plates and dine on the deck with your loved ones.

Meet Wilbur, our 11-foot lobster

The 11-foot fiberglass monster featured outside our restaurant is the work of artist Joe Rizzo. Over the years, Wilbur has been featured in many publications. Roadway Express, a national trucking company, chose Wilbur as one of the 12 most interesting things in the entire country. Recently, Ruth, Wimpy and Wilbur were spotlighted in The Countryman Press in an article titled “Favorite Seafood Shacks: Eating Up the Coast From Connecticut to Maine.”

Ruth and Wimpys also attracts many auto buffs. On summer evenings, there often are so many antique cars and custom hotrods in the lot, it looks like an organized auto show. Stop by tonight to taste our fresh-picked lobster and check out the many sights of our seafood restaurant.
