We and our dog enjoyed sitting on the deck while we had lunch. Good food, nice warm sun and breezes, and much entertainment from the Laughing Gulls who stole crab cakes from the lady at the next table!

A group of friends selected the Lobster House to celebrate an adventure on the Revolution Rail! The food and service was top notch. The seafood could not have been fresher or better prepared. When 8 women agree on a restaurant experience, you know it was...a great pick, and worthy of your continued patronage!More

We went to the lobster house multiple nights for dinner. Dinner was amazing. We had a group of 8 and everyone loved their dinner so much we went back another night. Lobster house has become my new favorite go to, for dinner.

The best meal we’ve had in years! We had the surf and turf, absolutely delicious! We arrived at 4 pm, they opened at 4:30. The line was long but everyone got seated quickly and they had plenty of servers and cooks. We were waited on,...got bread, drinks in just a few minutes. They are very organized!!! Food came out perfect. Well done, Lobster House!!More

Tuna was way overcooked despite asking for 'medium rare'. Nice location and probably good with careful ordering!

It is a little confusing navigating the place, but it well worth the effort. We had flounder for one dish and crab imperial. The food was great, the employees were the best, and the price was good.

We had our annual visit as we have for the past many years. It’s as if we were there yesterday, not much has changed including the menu. You can always count on consistently good food. Usually you will wait a while for seating.

Best food we have had here! We had the snapper soup, the sautéed scallops, and the swordfish special. All were delicious & very reasonable compared to other places. The apple sauce tasted like apple pie! Delicious!

Excellent service and food quality. Did not feel rushed, and view was obstructed by fishing boat. Didn't feel rushed, but food was delivered efficiently. Will return off season, but have heard that service suffers "In season".

It's lobster; you are "down the shore" in the summer; what's not expensive? You absolutely get what you pay for her; the service, ambience and not to mention the food are "out of the world".
