Salad bar is the best in the area. From traditional green salads to muscle,shrimp and herring in cream sauce, the salad bar has it all. Definitely takes two plates to fully appreciate and take advantage of the selection. Early bird dinners for two are a great value with numerous entrees to select from. At times the service appeared to be... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this place while trying to find another restaurant on our navigation system..........which by the way was closed when we finally found it, anyway the restaurant was busy and we had to wait 5-10 minutes. Our server was prompt and efficient. We both ordered a sampler platter which included a trip to the salad bar... More

What a great little place.... the owner is super friendly and they are very generous with the wine! They have a salad buffet and a seafood buffet that is included with the price of the meals. I was full off the seafood buffet before dinner even came out! Mussels, shrimp, pickled herring etc... I had the veal parm and it... More

My husband and I visited Lobster Pier for the first time last weekend for the early bird special... I am not a huge seafood lover but everything here was great! The hot and cold buffet were a nice addition (mussles in a garlic marinade were tasty), I read in previous reviews that there were alot of mayonnaise based dishes -... More

Attended for dinner during their Early Bird Special; 2 meals plus endless salad bar for $29 including taxes. Salad bar was extensive with over 30 items including muscles, shrimp, etc. nice selection of various fish and seafood entrées. Food was tasty and service was exceptionally provided by attentive and friendly serverS/staff. Worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood.

My husband and i took our two girls out with us for our 25th Anniversary. This was our first visit to Lobster Pier. The place was old but we didn't mind that it actually was part of the charm of the place. Service was fine but the food was horrible. The "seafood" salad bar consisted of lots of salads with... More

The restaurant is very mediocre both in food taste and quality. The décor is also less than mediocre.

My wife and I don't go out that much to eat but when we do it is usually to the Lobster Pier. The all you can eat salad bar comes with the meal, the calamari appetizer could feed a family and the sea food entrees are not only delicious but you will need a doggy bag for the left overs.... More

If you're looking for a relaxing evening out, do yourself a favor and skip this restaurant. From the moment we sat down, we were rushed. While wait staff appear to be trained, they are also harried. Clearly someone has told them not to stand still. Water is replenished after every sip. My partner was asked by 3 different people if... More
