Like an old friend. This place has been here for as long as I have been coming to the Cape. For me at least 30 some years. Prices are not high & have smaller portions but the food is good.

Yes, we were tourists, and yes this place is made from a boat, and yes we like lobster, so it seemed like a good bet. Wrong. The atmosphere sucks tourists in like sirens. It's right on the river and nautical. I will say the lobster bisque was some of the best we've had. Buttery and full of lobster. Then the... More

Our yearly visit to the Cape wouldn't be complete without eating at the Lobster Boat (at least once or twice). Good food, good service, friendly staff. Very busy at dinner time but not usually a very long wait.

Poor all the wAy around. Restaurant smells, restrooms are dirty. Food is tasteless and quantities are poor. Service is slow and unfriendly. Very upset I wasted a night of my vacation here.

Food was great. Our server, Jasmine, was one of the nicest person, you could tell she enjoyed her work. Prices were affordable. Do not take the pizza from the kids menu :-)

My husband and I went to the Lobster boat our first night in the cape. Their baked stuffed haddock was amazing! Our waitress was excellent and there was no wait, during the busy season at 6pm. The downside was the level of noise. There were large parties at every turn and a lot of little ones yelling and running around.... More

my husband and i have live here for 8 years and only just last night did we go to the lobster boat. the food was very very good. i think the prices are a little steep but that might be because i live and work here.

If you want a huge place that accommodates large groups, this might be it. Its menu was large enough to accommodate all tastes, but the food was mediocre (at best) and the atmosphere more like a circus tent than a dining establishment. The only two positives our group of 6 experienced were a wonderful waitress and the best spicy Bloody... More

Really, really like this place. Love the atmosphere, service excellent, and a broad menu for landlubbers or sea goers.
