Ordered the lobster roll and the mac&cheese, both terribly over cooked with chewy lobster. Portion size compared to... other competitors very small. Overall not worth the stop.read more

Our group was having a difficult time deciding what we wanted to eat so they offered us half and half rolls (half hot... and half cold). They were delicious!! We also had the lobster bisque and Mac and cheese, and neither disappointed. The lobster meat in the rolls were chunky and hearty. The bread was fluffy and buttery. If you like a little tarter sauce in your life, go for the cold; if you enjoy a buttery lobster, go for the hot. Amazing customer service!read more

Loved my New England lobster roll with hot butter! I liked the lobster mac n cheese as well... though i felt like the... cheese/roux wasn’t as creamy as I would have liked... and a lot of the butter pooled on the bottom of the bowl... but it tasted great! Will definitely be back. Can’t get enough of the buttery lobster goodness!read more

We ordered the lobster mac and cheese, which was amazing! Cheesy good with plenty of lobster! We also samples the... lobster bisque, which will be perfect for a fall day. Overall it was great! We recommend toning back the rosemary in both dishes since that flavor can be overpowering. Nice work, y'all!read more

About US

For the Shell of It was co-founded by David McLean and Dawn Berard in August of 2019. After a visit to Dawn’s hometown in late 2018 Dawn and David began to visualize how to bring the amazing taste of authentic New England Lobster to the South at an affordable price, using only 100% natural ingredients and made from scratch recipes.

With a mutual passion for cooking and creating and a mind for business and entrepreneurial endeavors we quickly realized that our casual conversations about what we would serve and how we could operate and share that great New England taste began to morph into more than just a fun idea. When we found ourselves searching for a commissary and purchased our first concession trailer to upfit with our steamer pots, griddles, and equipment our friends and family came to realize that out lobster food truck concept was becoming a reality!

Our final inspections with the County Health Department and a trip to Maine to meet with lobster fisherman and wholesalers all took place in August of 2019. We took our time to create our concept and personally choose every vendor and supplier to ensure we remain authentic.

Dawn Berard is a successful Real Estate Broker and one of the owners of a local real estate company on the NC Coast. David McLean is a successful business owner and logistics specialist for a major construction equipment supplier throughout the USA. What is important to understand about our company and vision is that while we would, of course, like to make money running this company,
it is equally important to have fun and share the amazing flavors and products of New England. This is why when asked where our name came from, we feel it speaks for itself. We opened our business “For the Shell of it” and hope you enjoy our creations!
