Awesome!

My wife and I had a few hours to kill in Boston and a friend recommended Roy Moore Lobster. What a treat it was! Fresh oysters shucked right as we ordered and a lobster pulled from the live well and put into the steamer. Oysters were phenomenal, lobster was amazing, and the lobster roll was just... read more

We had a quick lunch at Roy Moore's Lobster Shack. The service was fast and friendly. The lobster rolls were good but they were also the smallest rolls we had on the coast. It is nothing fancy but very authentic.

A simple, bare bones, delicious place to enjoy some lobster! There are no frills to add extra cost, but the gents working there are helpful, kind, and funny. The lobsters are HUGE and delicious. We got three for two of us and by the time we got to the third we were both full. How often does that happen with... More

Wow, wow, wow. What a fun lunch. The guys in the shop were excellent and & Knowledgeable. My husband and I visited for a lunch and it was a perfect way to stop and enjoy lobster in a non-pretentious way. The dinning was casual and the lobster was fabulous! We would recommend this to anyone visiting the immediate or surrounding... More

Without a doubt these folks served up the best lobster and lobster roll we've had all week. The lobsters are right off the boat and stored in sea water tanks. Perfectly prepared and priced right! Plus the local oysters are sooo fresh, plump, briny, and unbelievably delicious. No frills here...eating is at picnic tables outside on a deck...not great scenery,... More

Wonderful lobster picnic on the pier. The lobster roll was delicious and prepared with very little mayo. Just loaded with lobster chunks. Hubby had a whole lobster and clam chowder. All was perfectly prepared and the service was fun and friendly!

Loved the food. Waitresses were friendly and accommodating. Quaint view. Fried food did not have the greasy taste you would expect. Crab cakes were tender and well seasoned.

Nothing fancy here, folks, but oh, the seafood! We weren't sure how hungry we were when we stopped around lunch time and just kept eating and eating. One of the very helpful and personable guys running the place laughed and said, 'this happens all the time; it's why we don't bill anyone until they're done'. My wife and I had... More
