this is a small place next to the In and out burger. One orders at the counter and the food is delivered to your table HOT. Menu offers mainly fried seafood like clams, oysters etc as well as lobster rolls and lobster. Prices are ok and some of the meals have good sized portions. I have not eaten here enough... More

You would not expect to find great food at this little place in a strip mall but that's what you'll find here. We've never been disappointed by the service nor the food!

There is always a line out the door and that's no coincidence, the lobster rolls are amazing - say hi to Shay she is the counter girl taking phone orders and delivering food as well. Great place

I've been frequenting Lobster Shack since they opened, and they've kept me coming back. It was hard to try other things since the seafood is so amazing, but now I'm hooked on their ribs. Gotta try the key lime pie, the corners of my mouth are puckering just thinking about it. As others said, they're super friendly and efficient, just... More

Fresh Boston style lobster rolls in a super casual environment with friendly staff. Besides lobster rolls, oyster po boys and lobster bisque are all great options.

Everything was great, you gotta try this place. I had the combo which included a lobster roll and a pulled pork sandwich. It was really good and the service was great
