I'm very much a believer in New England lobster rolls but this place is pretty darn good! We got the Connecticut and Maine style lobster rolls and I think the Maine style won the race. Good fries and service and a decent selection of beers....More

This place has a perfect location. Just a few blocks off the nyc ferry in Red Hook. They have a lobster tank in one of the abutting rooms. Restaurant is not large but enough space to dine and certainly enjoy the atmosphere of an old...More

They have opened a stand at the open air Schmorgesborg Ok. So I can’t spell. Well they can’t make Lobster rolls. Tasteless. Sort of plastic not food. The chunks of lobster shell that you have to pick out of your teeth are equally without flavor...More
