Stop here for great lobster rolls!

From the casual seating area, to the great seafood, and prime location –  we love Woodman's! This restaurant is the perfect place to stop for delicious lobster rolls and a cold drink after a nice day at the beach in the summer. The kids love looking at the steamed lobster while waiting in line, which can get long in the summer. (Tip: We typically send one person to the drink line and one person to the food line.) Our favorite menu items include the lobster and crab rolls, as well as corn and clam chowder, but leave room for ice cream – available right behind the restaurant in the parking lot.

The Head of Accounting and Boston Ambassador, Jenny has been living in Boston for almost 10 years. Before Boston, she lived in Washington, DC for 8 years, and previous to that grew up on Long Island, NY. Along the way, she spent a few months in Amsterdam with her family biking all around and exploring that beautiful city! Jenny has always enjoyed being active - from organized sports to jogging, and of course, being in the garden as much as possible when the weather is cooperative. She tries to include her children in all of her active hobbies. With two toddler boys, ages 3 and 5, she and her husband spend their time discovering new places and things to do in the New England area. Spending time outdoors in all types of weather and encouraging her children to love all seasons is very important to her - and so is helping and encouraging others to do the same. Jenny and her family love spending time at the beach, traveling, taking walks and hikes, and of course, finding new playgrounds!
