"The Q" as the Lobster Q is referred is a lovely local eatery with so many surprises. The owner Sean is a passionate cook, always looking beyond, always trying something different. He develops his dishes at home where he exercises two different smokers with computerized temperature measurement and timings. Try the "Smoked Wings with PB&J" slightly tangy, slightly spicy and...

In a non-descript strip mall in the NH boonies, this very casual little place serves up some splendid food. Swordfish to perfection, scallops too. Prices very moderate, service pleasant, smiling, efficient. An excellent draft beer menu too. I'll be back.

Saw them on Phantom Gourmet and have looking forward to our visit, worth the wait. It's a relatively small place with a casual atmosphere and a large TV with the Food Channel playing when we visited. The staff was very friendly and the owner was terrific. We started with the Coco-loco shrimp, 4 VERY large shrimp rolled in a coconut... More

We have been here at least 10 times. This time was disappointing. My swordfish was dry and the broccoli was soggy and tasted old. My companion's lobster roll did not measure up to the usually quality and the cole slaw tasted off. I hope this restaurant can return to it prior consistency with good food!

The food met all my expectations. I had combo clams and scallops that were so fresh and delicious. The waitress, Lynne, was very pleasant and solicitous. The only down side was the room was kind of dark and dreary. I will definitely return.

Been there for takeout and dinner a few times. Disappointed with take out, for lack of seafood, especially clams. You pay a lot, and don't get a lot. That's not acceptable to me.

This was our third attempt at trying LobsterQ. We have always thought the food was good, but we have always had an issue with the service. Unfortunately this time was no exception. The waitress was an older woman who may be related to the owner. She was rude, non-accommodating, and was the final straw in our trying LQ again. We... More

My husband and I were there for a quick dinner. He ordered a drink--when it came it was awful. Sent it back and it came back the same way. Evidentially their tonic machine was mal- functioning. The waitress was very nice and took the drink off the bill. The food was excellent!!

Very tasty food and very good service. My wife had a combo with shrimp, scallops, and swordfish. I chose an off-beat surf and turf combo -- smoked kielbasa and calamari. People near us ordered PB&J wings. That is not a typo, they are not afraid to push the envelope here!
