If you happened to visit North Berwick during the summer months do not miss the Lobster Shack down by the harbor. You will wait in line but believe me it is worth it. My favorite was the half lobster and chips but everyone said the fish and chips were also very good. Same food is offered at the Rocketeer a... More

LOVE the Lobster Shack on the Harbour in North Berwick ... been twice in the last few months before the end of the summer season. First time ate 2 delicious meals - well deserved after cycling from Edinburgh. Really good jucy mussels and the best chips, along with a portion of fish cakes between 2 of us. You can't beat... More

Ate here recently on a Sunday afternoon, having been taken by friends. Never had lobster before, so can't really compare, but it was all very tasty. £13 for half a lobster seems reasonable value too I think. Mustn't forget the humble chip either, as they were excellent!

There is no better al fresco dining experience than fresh sea food at the harbour! Visited the lobster shack on a scorching hot summers day, the whole harbour was full of tourists and diners. Lovely atmosphere and the best fish cakes! Would like to go back one day when I don't have the car to enjoy my meal with a... More

This was my first trip to North Berwick & certainly will not be my last, I'm already looking forward to another meal at the Lobster Shack. The half lobster & chips was delicious. The value for money is incredible, the staff are great...only downside was the weather but once I started eating I didn't even notice the wind & rain!

Lobster and chips sitting at the harbour on a sunny Saturday is a real treat. We expect to be back next summer. Other things on the menu look good too but the lobster is too good to miss. Phone ahead to check it is open.

Which is why we visit every summer...mmmmmmm! We always have half lobster,chips & salad yummy this years price was £12.95. The service is second to none and... More

Loved the Lobster Shack. It really is a "shack". There are a few tables & chairs but best to treat it as a takeaway. We enjoyed our Lobster & Chips and Haddock & Chips on a bench overlooking the harbour. It was a gorgeous sunny day, the food was delicious and setting perfect. Couldn't fault it.
