Maine-ly Sandwiches at Sawyer Yards: A Lobster Roll Extravaganza!
If you’re in the mood for a seafood sensation that’ll transport your taste buds straight to the shores of Maine, look no further than the newest outpost of Maine-ly Sandwiches at Sawyer Yards. We recently had the pleasure of diving into the ocean of flavors at this lobster-centric gem, and let me tell you, it’s a voyage worth taking.
Located at 2313 Edwards St, Suite 190, this Sawyer Yards establishment marks the second Houston location for Maine-ly Sandwiches. The restaurant had a soft launch in 2023 but is gearing up for an official Grand Opening celebration on Saturday, January 27.
Maine-ly Sandwiches has made quite a name for itself in Houston since it first hit the scene in 2013. Initially setting sail with its Shepherd location, the restaurant quickly garnered a devoted following. However, Hurricane Harvey forced the Shepherd location to close its doors, leaving the MARQ*E area spot as the sole survivor. Until now.
Co-Founder Buddy Charity, who hails from Maine, spoke passionately about their journey, saying, “I have always admired Maine cooking, especially my mom’s. There is little Maine or New England cuisine in Houston, and we wanted to change that.”
Now, let’s talk about the star of the show: the lobster rolls. Maine-ly Sandwiches offers a delightful range of lobster roll options, including the zesty “Texas Heat” with fresh jalapeno slices, avocado, and tabasco, the savory “Southern Crunch” with red onions, celery, and Tony Chachere’s, and even the tantalizing “Fried Lobster Tail Roll.” If you’re feeling adventurous, they have a life-size 48-inch lobster roll challenge – can you conquer it in under 15 minutes?
As for beverages, you can BYOB at both Maine-ly Sandwiches locations, making it a perfect spot for a casual meal with friends or family.
The grand opening of the Sawyer Yards location is set for Saturday, January 27, from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. There will be a DJ spinning tunes, tantalizing samples, exciting raffles, and a generous 10 percent discount for all guests who attend the Grand Opening.
Maine-ly Sandwiches keeps its doors open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. and extends the hours to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, so you can get your lobster roll fix any day of the week.
