The founders started serving their famous lobster rolls at the Park Silly Market in 2009 and quickly expanded into a food truck that can still be found in Park City and Salt Lake City. The story didn’t end there, and the quality of their seafood menu is evident in the customer demand that fueled them to open three restaurants in Utah and Wyoming. Nothing hits the spot like a bowl of fresh clam chowder after a day on the slopes. Stop by to try the lobster roll that Park City can’t seem to get enough of.
