Haven't had much lobster before I came here, so I splurged and got a little bit of everything. The lobster roll was my favorite dish, get it with the chips and a couple oysters.

Food is delicious. A little bit pricey, but worth it. Not too big of a place to eat, but they offer seats outside. It's usually cold inside and outside. But the food is magnificent.

We got the lobster rolls here for dinner and they were really good. Being on the west coast, and in San Francisco we get charged a premium for good lobster. The blueberry lemonade is delicious.More

Many people seem to like the format - line up at an order-taking counter, pay and get a number, find a table (table-sharing sometimes necessary), get your food a short wait later. (Don't be discouraged by a queue; the line moves quickly, and from the...More

Description
New England Lobster Market & Eatery is an authentic east coast seafood experience in the San Francisco area. We started in the wholesale business delivering quality seafood at a great value and took that experience to serve customers at our restaurant. Whether you're shopping at the market or grabbing a meal at the eatery, when you visit you'll discover live Maine lobsters, Dungeness crabs, mussels and more. Diners at our restaurant love the dressed lobster rolls, lobster corn chowder and crab nachos. We welcome families and can accommodate business group and parties in our space. We also serve beer, wine and champagne to complement your meal. As long-time merchants in the wholesale shellfish business, we are able to consistently delight our customers with great prices and superb products. We promise you won't find an experience like ours anywhere else in the Bay Area! Eatery Hours: 11am-9pm daily
