Called ahead. They were waiting and perfect. They steamed and cracked them perfectly. Easy to eat. So tasty. Got hot buttered corn and coleslaw which were perfect!

Stopped by the fish market for a quick lunch for myself and houseguests. Service was friendly and efficient. Lobster rolls and fish and chips were terrific. I always buy my fresh seafood here and have never been disappointed.

We ate lunch at Nickerson's after visiting the fish pier in Chatham. The lobster roll was pricey but delicious. Lobster chunks with just a pinch of mayo - very buttery and flavorful. Melt in your mouth delicious.
