I felt the quality of the servings and plates was exceptional. It was a bit pricey but better than the competition. Well worth visiting again. There's a great view if seating in the back. Overall, I would recommend.

While the atmosphere is casual and is crowded most of the time, you can't complain about the high quality of their dishes. We usually get seafood dishes with risotto. The swordfish and Salmon were very good. We eat here about 4x a year.

Right at the entrance to the bridge to Gloucester - a good meal but nothing to brag about. The normal fare that you would find in any pub. Chowder was too thick - too pasty with flour.

Lobsta Land is the best all-round seafood restaurant in Cape Ann. Their lobster roll is my ruler for wherever else I am and has never been bested. The fried food is wonderful with a light crust that is bested in Gloucester only by Charlie's Place. The seafood stew and paella are both delicious. The atmosphere in the dining room is... More

I was pleasantly surprised how good the food was for just a roadside restaurant. Fish & Chips are wonderful!! My son had a 2 lb lobster served with all the fixins and it was the best he has ever had!! Would recommend this spot, it was great..

Staying 2 weeks at Wingaersheek we got lunch here at least every other day. As chowdah connoisseurs we all felt it was very good. I am speaking of the milk chowder, because for New Englanders there is no other type worth mentioning. Fried clams were good and on par with anything available in Essex. Great view of the salt marsh... More

If you like really good down home seafood at fair prices, you will never leave Lobsta Land unhappy, broke, disappointed or unfilled. If you dare, start with a small Caesar salad, and, if you're an anchovies lover like I am, don't hesitate to ask for extras. If you have any room left after the generous salad, the seafood risotto is... More

The food at Lobstaland is absolutely delicious. They have an extensive menu. The salads are great. My favorite entree is the crab cakes. Yum! I am a local and I think you can't go wrong. There's a nice view of the marsh from the dining room, too.

This place has been here for years and they always do a great job. The staff is well seasoned, if you ask a question, they know the answer. They know the menu although it is huge. Everything I have ever had there was pretty good, they used to do veal shanks as specials, they were great. It is bigger than... More
