I love Old port Lobster Shack. Fresh lobster, wonderful clam chowder (white - the only kind) a selection of beers and wines, a full variety of items on the menu, friendly faces, fast service. Don't let a long line scare you - it goes quickly and worth the wait. You order at the counter and then seat yourself. Food is... More

Nice place, pleasant employees, great food, but Lobster is too expensive on the West Coast. The decor is very New England based on movies, since I haven't been to NE yet.

If you are looking for New England style seafood, this is the best Bay Area spot. The food is fantastic, but, not cheap by any means. Now the rolls are loaded with lobster, and two will run you $35 with fries. I still have been twice last month, as the food is worth it!

Tried that place twice and we loved the food. Don't miss the lobster , the fish and chips , Maine sandwich and Lowe salad. Finger licking! Highly recommended

The ambiance is cozy and funny and the food is great. I had an awesome bowl of lobster soup and an epic lobster roll. The food is not cheap, but of course you can't get any better if you want to eat fresh lobster. I've had a lobster roll at SF fisherman's warf but the Old Port's was much better... More

My wife and I went here for lobster rolls and were very impressed. Rolls were good, they had fresh ice tea and were very helpful. The food delivery person even grabbed me another beer so I didn't have to wait in the long line of people ordering food. Very pleased overall.

We had lunch here. Opted for a signature roll and a salad. BOTH items had 'stuff' in them that's not suppose to be in food. Happily, the front order taker helped us out, since the server/busboy(?) was unable to.

OK, maybe not the same day but I didn't fancy writing two reviews. I go here for the lobster rolls and calamari, because they are awesome. I'm not entirely sure what else I can put here, delicious, fresh. I love the atmosphere. My only regret is I live in Europe so only here here 6 or so times a year.
