We went on a Sunday and fortunately sat outside on a nice beautiful sunny day. We got the lobster deal per person for around $26. It came with an entire lobster the way you want it cooked, with baked topped mussels, 2 baked clams, studded garlic bread, salad, a bowl of cubed cheese and olives... read more

An hour away but worth the drive......great menu , even better service. Views of the Sound and Orchard Beach were like visions of the past......growing up 15 min. away. We went on a Wed. afternoon ...10 min. wait and were waterside. We'll be back soon and recommend the broiled seafood platter.......

Nine of us went today. Six ordered the lobster tail plate. All six complained that it was the worst ever!...very dry, hard and tasteless. The owner actually yelled at us and said it was our fault for ordering it steamed instead of broiled!!!!!

This is a hectic place on weekends but they work hard to get you to a table fast. A couple of high points: parking is tough but the valet parking is helpful. Wade through the place to the back and find someone in the outside dining area; they'll get you seated. Whew: now that you're there, you'll have time to... More

A man of God visiting from London, UK was taken to this restaurant for his dinner and to our surprise the food and service provided by this restaurant was above the expectation to come from the Bronx. The management over delivered what they have under promised. The food was warm the four course meal was excellent and they rounded up... More

Been there several times with my husband as well as a reunion dinner with a bunch of old friends every December and have always had a great meal. Prices are right, food excellent, service really good. In the warm weather you can eat outside on the patio on the water and that's fun! Being a "Bronx Girl" I love going... More

Took my Kids to celebrate my daughters birthday- They all were reluctant to drive all the way from Manhattan. I insisted they go outside of their box - well they were all pleasantly surprised - they loved it, and even compared Lobster House to Manhattans better restaurants. Every thing we ordered was very good and plenty of it, great service.... More
