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!

We were told to go only when the owner was there! We did not know who he was and tried it! Calamari appetizer was great but things went bad thereafter! Had a seafood casserole ($28) and the lobster pieces tasted thawed and spoiled ruining the dish and our appetite! Had to wait then ask for our bill! She did ask... More

Have been to this restaurant several times and the food is consistently very good. The fried clams are very fresh and love the pulled pork sandwich.

I think the food is pretty good here - taste and portions are fair to above average but the place really lacks any kind of cohesive style in terms of decor...it looks a little haphazard and rushed, and sometimes just a lower-class type of place.
