This is more of my wife's review since I don't like lobster. We've been here several times and she always says it's great. She got a lobster roll and my daughter got a crab roll they both said it was great.

Dropped in for fresh lobster dinner and had a great time. They let you pick your lobster from a large tank if you want and cook it up to perfection for you. We visited on a slow day, but can only imagine the chaos on...More

I do not know . Cooked fresh lobster with butter is their thing - and they do it well - so that is what I have
Family eats lobster I don't. Any fish alternative?

They have steamed clams and clam chowder, but otherwise not much for a menu. Lobster is their thing and they do it well and their steamers are AWSOME !
