Good food, great service

It has two dining areas one adjacent to the bar and the other more family oriented. I had the broiled flounder and found the portion and taste to be quite... read more

I was looking forward to enjoying a seafood feast in The Lobster Loft surely didn't disappoint me. I had the "Steamboat Willie", which was a whole lobster, clams, 2 clusters of snow crab legs, mussels, corn on the cob and baby red potatoes cooked in beer & spices in a steamboat steamer. How do you spell DELICIOUS?! I couldn't eat... More

Skip this restaurant! The food was awful! We were with a group so we all tried something different and it was all lousy! The crab balls appetizer was sub-par and there were more condiments on the plate then actual crab balls. The lobster bisque was a huge disappointment and tasted like it was out of a can. The Ceasar salad... More

We only get to the shore once or twice a summer but always end up at Lobster Loft for dinner. We like to eat dinner and then stay for the music and dancing. After our experience in early June we will never go back. It was extremely crowded and we knew we would have a wait to be seated so... More

Try the crab balls! Baked stuffed lobster was good. Lobster bisque was tasty but very thick. Valet parking available

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic dinner at the Lobster Loft. We were seated next to a window over looking the marina... great view. Our waitress was absolutely fantastic. We both ordered the "Old Steamboat Willie's Special". wow.... lots of food. What I did eat of it was prepared and seasoned perfectly to my liking. I will return to... More

What's interesting is that when you walk in the door, the bathrooms are right there and it smells like a bathroom at the front desk.
