This is a locals favorite. It is a little hard to find. It is tucked into a strip mall that belies the food, but don't let that fool you. The food here is excellent. The only reason I didn't rate the restaurant as excellent is because of its front end -- it is quite popular and so there is frequently... More

We ate lunch here a few days ago as my daughter (who lives in the area) had been to before. It's one of those places that you wouldn't give a second glance to since it is located in a strip mall behind/ next to an In N Out burger. Give it a second glance (or three or four)! They fly... More

It s a cute enough little spot, very casual plastic fork kind of casual. We went we a group which was a bad idea. Not only do they not talk reservations you cant get a table till you have ordered. The lobster was shipped in from New England. Not what I'm looking for when I want fresh seafood.

Went to this place after finding it on tripadvisor. Very good food in an easy going atmosphere. I sat outside in the sun and had a great Clam Showder to start with and a full main Lobster. The only thing I can not get used to is to eat Frensh Fries to Lobster... I will come back!

We love coming here to Redwood City because of Old Port Lobster Shack. It's a nice find for sea food lovers and well worth the price.

Old Port Lobster Shack is tucked away in a small strip mall,a real hidden gem for fans of east coast fresh lobster. I sampled a few different menu items on two separate dining occasions. The lobster rolls are delicious,taste the same as what you would find in the new england area and the prices are about the same as what... More

Everything we had there was a 10! The line was a bit long but it was worth the wait.. the Lobster roll was to die for! The stuffed clams with home made bacon were on point! cant wait to go back. I live about 2 hours away and i would make the drive!

Best fish and chips ever. Great beer and ale, bottled and on tap. My friend from the New England region said this place is the real deal.

If you want a taste of New England in Northern California, try Old Port Lobster Shack. If you are craving an old fashioned lobster roll, a cup of clam chowder or even some haddock, you should give this place a try. My wife have eaten there several times and we have never been disappointed. The lobster tools are pricey, but... More
