We drove by and gave this place a shot. Was not expecting to get such great tasting tender lobster. The seating area is really nice considering this is basically a food truck.

a delicious hot roll filled with 1/4 pound of chunky lobster meat, a typical shack with views of the branford river and a marina

Great fast service. Eating outside is so good this time of year. The lobster roll was served hot and had a butter sauce. Just delicious nothing more to say. I will be back for more for sure!!

Very friendly staff, food was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect! Bring your own drinks or they have non-alcoholic for purchase.

It's just a truck sitting in a lot, with a lovely view of the Branford River, marina, and the town center beyond. But you come here for lobster rolls, and it's just everything. No mayo slathered rolls here! The lobster rolls are simple perfection - yummy buttery and generously heaped. Chips, a cooler with sodas and water and iced tea, and Whoopie Pies from Maine. That's about it, and everything you one needs for a perfect experience.

A couple of years ago, they built two nice big shed roofs over the big picnic tables, a welcome relief from the sun for those of us without tanning capacity.

My friend Julia was thinking of buying a house in Branford. Lunch at the Lobster Shack sealed the deal; she closes next month.
