Al Gagnon, Owner of Red’s Eats, Dies

Red’s Eats is a seafood shack in Wiscasset, Maine and the home of what is indisputably the most celebrated lobster roll in the world. I’ve certainly had my differences with Red’s Eats and their version of the lobster roll, but clearly Al Gagnon cared deeply about his lobster roll, and that’s all that matters. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.


I was saddened to hear of Al Gagnon's death this summer when I went to visit my brother. I truely hope his daughter's continue his legacy because Wiscasset will not be Wiscasset without "RED'S EATS"!

From what I have read, Al’s daughters will continue operating Red’s Eats and plan to keep things just as they are.
