Good seafood

Always good seafood and, of course, lobsters. Now offers a gluten free menu which makes dining so much simpler for me. Casual atmosphere.

Out for dinner on a Saturday evening. Upon entering we only had a 5 minute wait. I Ordered the seafood platter which was cooked perfectly although the portion appeared minimal, a lot more shrimp than anything else. The waitstaff was decent. I would go again but only as last resort.

We go here almost every weekend during the summer. Can't find better quality / better tasting seafood anywhere else around. Bar specials and happy hour and small plate menu make this place affordable and there is something for everyone on the menu. Lobster bisque, shrimp cocktail, baked stuffed lobster, goat cheese salad, clam strips, chicken wings, the list goes on.... More

We visited for my birthday with my Wife, mom, and son. The shrimp and scallops was excellent as was the salmon Julia. The warm bread appetizer was also very good. The on tap specialty beers were excellent. The only recommendation for improvement would be the serving sizes. I will definitely go again.

We've been going to Westbrook Lobster for years, usually on weekends. I always get the Boiled Lobster Clambake with steamers, Rhode Island clam chowder, red or mashed potatoes and vegetable of the day or cole slaw. My husband either gets the fried shrimp or fried fish and chips. Always good. The waitresses are very experienced and friendly. We keep meaning... More

Service was good, beers excellent, oysters fantastic, however the fried seafood platter was way over cooked. The whole bellies were dried out and the French fries were hard. Definitely not going to order fried food there again. For a first time experience not very impressive at all.

They have a wide variety of dishes and a full bar. My apple martini was very good, but the foods/appetizers we ordered were either too greasy or tastelessly made and covered with sauces/salsas. The lady who attended to our table was very friendly and nice, but se had too many competing priorities, which made her a little inattentive. This place... More
