I recently had a great dining experience at Lobsta Land in Gloucester, MA. My friends and I had spent the day touring in and around Gloucester. Somewhere along the line we asked for a dinner recommendation and were told Lobsta Land was great. I had been there before for breakfast (very good!), but never for dinner. When we arrived there...

We ate breakfast there and 2 dinners. The food was always amazing. Highly recommend it and there is actual parking which was a major plus.

This restaurant is even worth the drive from Boston. Food is incredible. The Papaya is everything you could want in one dish.

A simple lunch. Not to busy for summer time in Gloucester. No wait, and good seats to overlooking the marsh. Hostess was pleasant, but waitress was cold. I ordered the soup and sandwich. She did not ask if wanted the claim or fish, then I asked if I could have wheat bread, and then I reminded her that I would... More

The portions at this restaurant are huge--ordered an appetizer-size portion of cioppino and it was a meal! The Key lime pie I had for dessert--embellished with a generous plop of real whipped cream--was probably the best I've ever had--I'm still thinking of it! My cousin and her husband have been coming here for years and took me there while I... More

Four of us had wonderful meals at Lobsta Land in Gloucester, MA on July 30. Two had clam chowder and decided it was one of, if not the best...correct thickness, great seasoning, tons of clams (and these guys have had a lot of chowder over the past decades). The swordfish was cooked perfectly and was moist. The Caesar salads had... More

Based in Goodmorning Gliucester recommendation we ate at lobsta Land and we were not disappointed The haddock chowder was full of meaty large chunks if fresh fish. Onion rings tasty and the lobster roll really tasty with no fillers and very little mayonnaise I bet there was a pound or seemed like a pound of lobster meat in the sandwich.... More

Like every one else on trip advisor and yelp - I was eager to dine here due to the reviews, we arrived at 5:45pm for dinner on a Friday night to no wait - we walked right in, a family of 4 with 2 teens. However it was down hill from there... More than 60% of the items listed on... More

It's like a whole lobster in a brioche bun. Whole claws. Big chunks of lobster. Nothing but lobster very lightly dressed. Pricey but well worth it. Best we've had on this trip. Funny to find with Apple Maps, but it ends up it's right by Rt 128. Go. Enjoy.
