Epicurean Kentuckian: Glasgow has delicious lobster dishes

He suggests a short drive across the Cumberland Parkway to Glasgow's Captain D's as an excellent alternative to driving to Rockland, Maine to sate lobster cravings: Closer by about 1200 miles, 19 hours. And saves a bunch of money.

Personal culinary critique

I was born a Pisces in March so naturally ice water(with lemon) is my favorite beverage and any kind of seafood.

Living in Kentucky, with so many miles of shoreline across our state, we have an abundance of freshwater fish, aquaculture shrimp, mussels, even mud puppy crawfish.

But for those with a taste for the coast like crab and lobster Maine is a long way to go until now.

For a limited time in South Central Kentucky's Glasgow, a town named after a city in Scotland, one can dine at Captain D's restaurant on Hwy 31W (300 N L Rogers Wells Blvd) Glasgow, KY on seasonal favorite, delicious lobster rolls just like those from places like Rockland Maine!

Their lobster bisque chowder is simply outstanding; too so much I suggested a thermos to go.

You don't have to go to Maine to savor the flavor, just head west over the Parkway.

BTW the Somerset franchise isn't participating in this current promotion. - Robert Cumming
