Great spot for a fish sandwich, and the lobster chowder is great. However pricing wise it' s a good 15-20% over the market rate for similar food in the neighborhood.

Food tasty, reasonable prices, good range of local beers. Quiet during the day, which makes for easy conversation. Easy to miss if you are driving past.

We went back to the Lobster Joint the day of the NYC Marathon (Sunday November 6, 2016), and had to maneuver along the neighborhood streets (some had not been reopened). There isn't an obvious sign, unless one is looking directly at the Joint. Inside, loud music blares. We found a table and ordered a couple of those fantastic Bloody Marys.... More

We went one evening as it was round the corner from our hotel. I had the crab cakes which were really nice. My wife had the lobster mac and cheese which she enjoyed but which was pretty big and had a lot of pasta and cheese for my liking. They also do lobster shepherd pie and a few other choices.... More

Both great...anywhere that does a $4 beer (B4 7) gets my vote. Burger and making making sandwich both excellent.

We live in the neighborhood....so why only have reviews from visitors? The Lobster Joint has a large menu and daily specials that are always fresh, well-prepared and a good value. If you can't decide, Lobster Club Roll with fries. Done. Lobster, avocado and bacon, really could it be better? Lobster claw bloody Mary is great. A really tasty bloody and... More

Oh. My. The Box House Hotel recommended this place and I am very glad. Looks low key from the outside and small, but there's a nice sized garden out back with lots of picnic style tables. We had the most delicious Manhattan style (yay no cream!) Lobster and Corn chowder, plus a huge tuna melt, salmon sandwich (lettuce instead of... More

Listen, The Box Hotel recommended this place to us. Really, check it out! Please know looks can be deceiving. We walked in, and there were only two customers. We looked at one another and thought this should be interesting. In deed it was! A very pleasant young lady came over to our table and introduced herself. She took our drink... More

I ordered a New England Lobster roll today. Quality-wise, it was very good. Fresh meat and not drowned in mayo and very good fries come along with it. And I fully understand that lobster is not cheap. But I've had many lobster rolls before and the amount of lobster meat that they put on the roll is very disappointing just... More
